Good morning ladies and gentlemen, Once again, thank you for your participation and talents last night, and for accommodating this exercise in your schedules at last minute. Thank you K for transportation and equipment lugging,
D for coordinating and providing accommodations, W for your expertise and multitude of gifts, C for access to the internet, G for always being a great set of eyes and ears and your attention to detail; and S for your excitement and presence. YBJ expressed concern about performing unrehearsed for an audience, anxiety your professional attitudes helped assuage. DESIGNING FOR GOOD I doubt D did this on purpose, but serendipity made it so that the room door happened to be facing a drawing depicting Christ on the cross. I'll take that as a blessing. Could one of you grab a shot of that please? Let's start counting our blessings. I'll also note that the room was no. 2, which is my lucky number. These things are useful for creating scavenger hunts throughout the game. READING NOTES Readings are normally rather dry, and as you could tell last night I was reading some long and boring screen instructions which we would have conveyed visually had we done the reading as originally planned. You may have heard me refer to the POV many times, and things like [heartbeat][blink]. In the case of the OBJECT, it is shown from one perspective. An homage to the old days when the practice was never showing Jesus' face in film out of reverence, as well as an attempt to convey the experience of walking in his footsteps. Our inspiration for this treatment came from a project we executed in 2012, a promo program for the Aids Committee Durham. 'AAA' begins with an 'experience' segment, meant to convey the experience of receiving a positive AIDS diagnosis. It illustrates to a degree what POV feels/looks like to us; although some of the effects are overpronounced for impact in this case; in the case of THE OBJECT they would be more subtle.

Though YBJ didn't contribute to the work above, we completed a few pieces together,  including one of my favorites, an impromptu thank you to our transportation sponsor made up of mostly b-roll.

As discussed yesterday, we will be taking out a cut of the Soliloquy for deployment onto 2KYU.  K is working on that now, and pending approvals, we should have it ready in time to show Friday/present Saturday at YEC15.

We will also be uploading a video copy of the session to 2KYU.com for those of you who weren't able to attend. 

We took one word impressions from the audience in attendance last night which will be smashed into a piece called SuperScribeDiatribe.  

Notes on that will be distributed to 2KYU Subscribers only!.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Do You 2Q?
