Poster Idea 2- Post-It-Notes
I then moved on to the idea of a a post-it-note-poster, which I thought was clever way of making an interactive poster that is not defined by the frame. I thought also that it would be a good idea because of the way that it gives the user/viewer control of the pace and also how they interact with the content and how they choose to ‘see’ the poster. I really liked the idea of making a physical poster that can be constructed, deconstructed, moved, portrait or landscape, interactive and also flexible, with many other qualities.
However the drawbacks were that all tough post-it-notes are flexible in terms of position they are inflexible when considered for the amount of surface area given to work with and the required a lot of hand drawn typography. It would be hard to keep the Post-it-notes in good condition and the would be hard to keep stacked for the beginning of the poster.
But because I liked the idea still of an interactive poster and the flexibility of the post it notes, I talked to my tutor Rob and we decided that i would make the essay cards on the computer so that they are replaceable, and reusables and I would add the top of the post-it-note to the back of the cards so that they would retain the flexibility of the post-it-note. that way the peter can still be constructed, deconstructed, moved, portrait or landscape, interactive and also flexible, amongst other things.
These are examples of my poster cue cards without the text or editing—>

During workshop week I participated in a fairytale workshop, where we learned that during the workshop we would each be completing a small section of the overall animation. Each piece that www ere each given would be 10 seconds long and added together using the square that would be a constant at the start and end of the scene.

Poster Idea 1- Animation
My initial idea was to have the poster animate by unfolding but I quickly moved on from this.
This project then lead on to inspire the concept for how I wanted my essay poster to look. Originally I thought about making my essay poster into an animation because I wanted the poster to reflect the overall message of the essay, which was about how expanded forms of advertising test the boundaries and are not defined by the frame. I felt like I need my essay “poster” to not be something static and stuck to in place, otherwise it wouldn’t fit the essay. There was a part in the animation sequence project (0:56 seconds) that directly inspired how I wanted my animation to work as a short motion paper graphics, using the page turn effect.
The inspiration for this was a project called the Animation Sequence project—>
However the more that I thought about it the more impractical the idea became because it would have to be quite lengthy for the read/viewer to be able to read the text or have some sort of user control to give the user/viewer as much time as he or she might need to read the information. It could also be quite time consuming to completer the animation in the time left to complete the “poster”.

Me and bronwyn met up and finalised our animation for or next meeting with Seb and Lewis. It had yet to asked but we were happy with what we had a achieved.
The first animation that me and Bronwyn completed—>
Once Seb and Lewis had taken a look at what we had completed, they had a few ideas for how we could make it a little better and after talking through what ideas we had also were thinking we met up again on our research day and finished of the improvements. We really enjoyed collaborating on this project together and both really like the outcome even though it is fairly simple. There are a few things that make the movie seem a little empty but the sky will be parts of the sky will be masked out later to match the box designs.
