We are hosting a week-long workshop during 25-29th November that will explore augmenting mobile movie production. If you are interested in participating please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter to @thomcochrane or @ATZ119
This workshop aims to give participants the skills to create innovative mash-ups of three of the unique affordances of today’s smartphones, tablets and phablets:
- Augmented Reality (locating)
Using geotagging via smartphones in-built GPS mobile movies can be located within a geographical context, linked to collaborative Google Maps and viewed in Google Earth. This adds a rich layer of contextual information to mobile movies, effectively augmenting a mobile movie with geographical data.
- Mobile Media Production (creating)
Adding new mobile video applications such as Vyclone, Vine, and the YouTube online Editor to your collaboration can enhance the creation of mobile movies and add a unique perspective.
- Mobile Social Media (sharing).
Mobile social media provides a way to publish and share your creative output with a global audience, using tools such as Twitter, Google Plus, and Wikitude.
This workshop will explore scenarios for innovative and collaborative team projects using these tools. It will leverage the expertise of two academic advisors (Cochrane & Narayan) with specialty in Mobile Social Media, and pair this with the expertise of two international mobile film making specialists: Antonczak (NZ & France) and Keegan (UK).
The four key objectives of the workshop are that:
- Participants will experience creating an augmented mobile movie in a collaborative team
- Participants will brainstorm how they can design augmented mobile movie projects within their discipline context
- Participants will discuss and critique examples of collaborative mobile movie production and mobile augmented reality
- Participants will be introduced to the body of literature surrounding mobile learning, mobile movie production, and mobile augmented reality in higher education
The Augmenting Mobile Movie Production Workshop will focus upon participants forming production teams (4 people) to create an authentic augmented mobile movie project using a mashup of YouTube/Vimeo/Vyclone/Vine and Google Maps, and create a Wikitude World from this content. These projects will then be presented and critiqued to/by the entire workshop participants, and shared for feedback from global experts.
Participants will need to bring:
- An iOS or Android smmartphone or table device (iPad 2+, iPad mini, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Note2)
- A laptop
- An iTunes Store or Google Play Store account ID
