Video Bridge / Grundtvig Workshop / Diary /
|HelmutLeitner: I want to comment on the daily video clips. I think Ernst Gruber does a great job to produce them and he has created a nice format. In general it would be a big step forward for funded projects to have such or similar video clips, developing to a form of documentation.
Nevertheless imho there are some things to be desired:
Be aware that your enthusiasm of having some video product created may not transfer into an enthusiasm of an audience that is used to Hollywood blockbusters and TV soaps. If we can't reach the technical perfection, we should at least aim to be authentical in our communication and valuable in our knowledge content.
Of course, everything could be underpinned with pattern theory. E. g. patterns are about transformations and suggest that you are aware about the context the initial and the final state, the pros and the cons. So you ask, why things are created the way the are and whether this fits the needs. E. g. you could look at the interface of the video as a BOUNDARY property increasing its contribution to living systems in the sense of usability (framework of youtube or DorfWiki, intro, ...). E. g. one could look at the relationsship of content and intro/trailer, and the relationsship of atmospheric and work information, under the property LEVEL OF SCALE (I prefer the term PROPORTION) and SYMMETRY. This would lead to a much deeper analysis and adaptation. But at that point of development this hardly makes sense.
FranzNahrada: Thank you. Good points! We will discuss them.
