Lyveden New Bield Project: Workshop Two

This Saturday we held the second workshop for the Lyveden project at The Pemberton Centre, Rushden. Everyone picked up the video editing software really well and were soon off editing images and footage to the soundtrack.

The video they are working on is currently known as the 'Timeline' sequence. This is a 5 minute video piece that will be projected onto the 4 window panes at Lyveden New Bield. It is a bit of a history piece explaining how the Church of England and the persecution of the Catholics began and how it links with the Tresham family. We have a collection of old portraits which will be edited together with the footage the group filmed in the first workshop.

Andy E took charge of the workshop this week whilst Andy R and myself worked on the animated 'Blueprint' sequence. This section explores all the different secret codes that Tresham included in the design of Lyveden New Bield. We have been working on this for the last week and it was good to get some feedback from the rest of the group on what we were doing.

Back to some traditional animation

The deadline is now approaching fast with a week and half to go until the event itself. Hopefully we will be doing some projection tests next week to check that everything is working properly. Then we have the final workshop next Saturday where we need to finish everything off. Wish us luck! ^-^

On a side note I thought I would mention that our group previously known as 'Art Group (name unknown)' are now called:

It took us a while to get there but everyone agreed we needed to come up with a name and fast. So we went back to some very old ideas and just picked one. :) We now need members of the group to now come up with some logo designs. We are thinking of running a mini design competition for this. Could be a lot of fun! ^-^
