AmbITion Re:connected – Hoi Polloi Case Study

This is a live blog of the AmbITion Re:connected  event at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester.  If you spot any errors or inaccuracies or would simply like to contribute to the conversation, leave us a comment!

Next up is a video featuring Simon Bedford from Hoi Polloi Theatre who are currently touring their show, Floating in Australia.

They are using the magic of online video to communicate with us.

Filmed yesterday and uploaded to YouTube yesterday.

On the road to Tasmania.  See more at the Hoi Polloi website.

The new website is a way of pulling together all their social media content.

Blog runs through Blogger.  Updated once or twice a week.

Will be posting this video on there.

Recent 3 entries from blog fed onto their blog.

They’re on Twitter too:

Great for engaging with people.

People are searching ‘Floating’ and Opera House on Twitter and recommending it to their friends.

Simon has created videos from various locations in Tasmania.  Excited that he can make videos on their little journey to Tasmania and share what they’re up to.

Technical things:

Worked with a web designer that combined work from previous site and cost around £1000.  Most of that spent on the designer programming stuff.

In terms of technology: this video was created from a cheap digital camera.  He used the built-in video in his Mac laptop for some bits and edited it all with iMovie.

Take the time to try things and find out how things work.

Next up: Panel featuring Jamie Wooldridge from Ludus Dance, Andy Darby Litfest and a lady from Hoi Polloi whose name I couldn’t catch (Update: Louise Coles) discuss “How does using video impact on your artistic practice?”
