Media Sandbox Showcase and Publication Launch
I attended the Media Sandbox Showcase and Publication Launch at the Watershed in Bristol yesterday. It showcased six catalytic investments to innovative Research and Development pilots funded by regional agencies that were produced at the Pervasive Media Studios. I have been meaning to get down to open Fridays at the PMStudios but have been so busy lately that I have failing to do so. Seeing what is coming out of this place and the people involved was very interesting and inspiring and shall definitely be making an appearance to try and get involved in what seems like an amazing place.
I was particularly impressed with the projection mapping work done by AntiVJ. A local flash dev I have recently met a few times George Crabtree did the Air front-end, hopefully he will be doing a presentation on this at one of our upcoming Bristol Flash User Group meetups. I also saw an old friend who heads up a Bristol company called Nomos Media, he produced one of the other projects called AudioEnable and gave a very interesting presentation on it. It is a mobile-device audio recording, sharing, rating and community app, he showcased some school children enjoying using the software and I can see it’s potential for all kinds of other markets/audiences.
At the end of the presentations there was a launch for a book that beautifully showcases the projects followed by some very nice food and drinks. It was a great time, thanks to all who were involved 🙂
