Oops! Missed a day - forgot that on the morning of Archontia's workshop we again filmed, photographed, sketched, and interviewed people on site in real life situations!

The next session was a creative writing workshop in Chatham, however an unfortunately timed visit to the US Embassy in London meant that sadly I missed this workshop day. However, I did write the storyboard for my now ANIMATED comic idea - to be interspersed with real film - for the exhibition on Monday 19th.

So I'm not that good at drawing people in Manga style okay... However, I did have to write a comic book about this so I must plod on!

You're not a man, you're just a mannequin:
Today we learnt comic book/sketching skills with Archontia from MSA_Praxis. (I also chatted with her quite in depth about her atelier, but that's a different story.) However, sketching little wooden mannequins in no fun when there are real people in the room sketching mannequins to sketch. So I sketched the people instead. However, these were then to be developed into a comic much like Archontia's amazing portfolio work,. Results to follow.

Learn to love Premiere Pro (Or not...) Regardless of your relationship status with Adobe's editing software, today we spent some time in a media suite in Chatham collating our videos and editing them into our own mini documentaries. Next tram to media city please!

Let's film! The second day saw us film in Piccadilly Gardens, which was quite fascinating; this really allowed me to capture people in everyday circumstance, moving through transient space.

The first day of events saw us sketching with Simone Ridyard and the Urban Sketchers at Manchester Library After giving us a talk in the morning, Simone set us free to wreak havoc in the library and observe, watch, and absorb the activities happening there. Here I explored my fascination with people and the way that they interact with space; I find this particularly exciting!
