Major Project 2013

This is my register for our major project for 2013!

Schedule Changes!

posted Jun 19, 2013, 8:34 PM by Sunny Lu

Well, I haven't got my prototype back but I think I can still work with the feedback I got which was in certain cases, quite helpful. With Mr Woo, announcing that the report is actually extended to next term (yay!), I can now focus more on actually finishing my system (the video) and refining it so it actually looks nice and detailed.
I looked at my storyboard and I know a lot of people had issues with some parts which just didn't add up so I ended up having to change that.
I'd probably start the report on the holidays and definintely should be able to get it done.

Starting The Final Stage

So with everything out of the way and the end of the Semester closing in, I've been starting to make some progress on the final stage of the major project. I've currently been focusing on the making of my video because i want it to be as engaging as possible and make use of the media types i should include.
Im almost finished with this but im finding it quite simple to produce but im thinking whether it's too simple?!
I should make a start on the project report too!

Post exam, catching up...

I was starting at filming but i realised i shouldve made a story board instead so im going to opt for a story board. Ive already got the script so im just thinking right now of visualising what i actually want as my films turned out to be really REALLY bad.
Once ive done this i should start surveying others and be sure that my mystery makes sense! 

Filming, Making a video.

I've some progress on my video filming,. I need to do a voiceover though and hopefully give it to people to watch soon planning on using some form of software or even Microsoft Sam to give my video a more of a rechnological system thats talking to the user!
Right now I'll be studying for half yearlies, and I'll give out the protoype to others soon and get the stage 2 requirements done.

Scripting a story

Sorry for the delay in a post, holidays kinda made me want to keep off going on the school websites, cept for those maths papers =)
Anyways, i've made great progress with the script and planned how id create each segment of the video. Overall, i think its quite substantial and should be enough in length. 
I might take a couple days break to do some ag prelim studying and ipt and half yearlies etc to study, do homework, read that charles dickens book =(

This should have been around 15th April for this update. 

Finalising A Solution, Further Analysing Feasibilities

posted Mar 13, 2013, 7:43 PM by Sunny Lu   [ updated Apr 28, 2013, 3:31 AM ]

So i've finally decided on an idea, but its different from the ones mentioned in my planning stage report, but still based around one of those ideas, no spoilers =P
i've looked at this and it seems very workable. i googled some softwares for recording onscreen which is a great help and i can access a good video camera. I want to know of any good video FX softwares available?! preferably free and/or legal copy =)
Other than that scripting should commence!

Ready to go!

So i've finalised on a couple of ideas. One of them is basically the secret of the Bermuda triangle where a collection of spam has one person thinking about what is really means. The person sending the spam and a plea to rescue him and has set a puzzle (he codes this to avoid suspicion by intelligence agencies) and offers a reward (gold found on the island). He claims to come from the bermuda triangle sending the emails via satellite connection. The emails are largely ignored as spam except one person who tries to solve his puzzle. He solves the puzzle and discovers a route to the bermuda triangle! The man goes missing for many years but then comes back in a boat. The problem is that no one knows which person came back since both have been missing for years. Maybe the captor had killed the puzzle solver, stolen all his identity uploaded the log videos to act legitimate and assumed his life or the puzzle solver took the reward, killed the victim came back to start a new life.   
the main problem i find is filming the ocean which might be quite difficult to make it look plausible. 
If this idea fails, the map could simply lead to a hidden area where it leads to a secret location. 
Just a side note, notice that the backwards of SPAM is MAPS :P
Another idea i have come up with a new game has been released, and one of the many youtubers reviews this game and during the gameplay, he stumbles upon a random code which is largely ignored as a glitch. However, one follower decides to investigate posting his own videos on what he believes is a puzzle. Going on the he finds out a terrible secret, the game is being used by criminals to transfer confidential information. The user eventually stops posting videos he goes missing. The police find out about his videos and investigate but dont have enough evidence and cannot find the whereabouts of the person to ask questions. The game is largely popular so they cant find what account the criminals were using and the case is unsolved.  
I will polish these stories but these are just some brief outlines of my ideas. 
I've finalised the planning stage report an i just need to polish it and finalise my schedule and gantt chart which i can hopefully stick to!

Post 1 - Initial thoughts/ideas

posted Feb 10, 2013, 2:41 PM by Sunny Lu   [ updated Feb 11, 2013, 2:24 PM ]

The idea of multimedia mysteries has been quite puzzling to me because it is quite difficult to think of a creative and logical idea.
So far i have the idea of
Where's Wally (poks initial thought) which i kind of extended on
Instagram mystery
Runescape story
