BBC - Britain From Above

by HK & 3 others
by Nick Catliff, Ex Prod for Lion Television. A 9-month project. Striking videos of jet flying over country side + gps visuals = more 100 videos. As Nick says, it is indeed not a simple program supported pgm - just not very much more to me. Still an amazing website. Amazing video of commercial ship gps tracked routes across the Manche not even talking about flight routes. Good idea of mashing up with archive content to adress history of Britain. But as he bragged about with merit, webdesign are maybe the most intersting part of this website. Does not make it anything more than a great a TV program based site. Anyway, if anything, it is about extremely entertaining and beautiful HD aeria footage and linear video datavizualition graphics. no discussion ! no interactive graphics for gps without enough ressources. "you can watch it for fun. Or with purpose. From day 1, a 360 project - multiproject A tv show = 5 million views a web show = more but for 10 years

Startseite: WDR Klangkiste

by HK
A fun portal showcasing basic overview of instruments and music styles. An interesting use of grid like présentation of all vignettes 66 cards of instruments / type of concert assembles / technical staff with audio samples and fancy graphic design. 7-10 years Too bad the sound design is so annoying. You know this type of sounds that play all the time when you mouse over a button or any image. Here, there is lik eone sound on every damn pixel so anywhere you put your mouse, there is a sound playing making a noisy cacophonie like someone was testing all instruments at once. Nice use of short stop maotion effects and édit on vidéos to présenting the musicians. Quiet créative and entertaining but generally, you feel very far away from the instruments. You would want to try sounds and tunes. They actually have the idea of creating a virtual practicing room - 1’ video format - Memory games - Interactive music playing games (using interactive video technics)

RTÉ: Red

by HK
Presented by Aaron Heffernan fro RTE public television. Lonely girl and the brittney guy like project from Irish public television service. Very well made though. Very effective and smart. Hiring famous youtubers to gather their audience and bring it to another stage of viewership. Teanegers like to vote 100th most subscribed channel in the world on youtube 50% of audience is Irish Cheap as meantioned : 60 K Euros for 15 min/week X 35 weeks


by HK
A newly developped time-and context-driven hyper-video player that provides additional information on the eponymous, weekly showing TV magazine show. A year to produce the player. Example, if you have a doc on Mohammed Ali, and you want to have more information on his childhood while a corresponding sequence is played, the user can click on the "hotspot" to hyperlink to related materials (print, radio...). A functionality already featured on youtube only more journalistic centric and not video only-focused. They also added a anchor shot on blue screen to introduce the subjects featured. It really gives a TV channel feel of it. Suprisingly enough, they never considered embeding the player outside...and the links are limited to the website itself - no outside links possible.
