Must say a big thank you to the Press department of University College Falmouth. Today they released a press release for my inclusion of Storyscape in this years BIMA Awards, which take place next week. It’s great to see that they are promoting ex-student projects. Hopefully this will get more people reading about the Storyscape – which can’t be a bad thing!

In the run up to this years BIMA awards I have decided to update the content featured on my Storyscape site. This means sourcing material, adapting for radio, recruiting actors, recording voices, mixing and uploading to site! Lots to be getting on with! Check out my Storyscape blog to see what sounds I am in search of! storyscapeproject.wordpress.com
Really happy to say that I had a letter through the post this weekend which said that my nomination for this years BIMA Awards had been accepted. I am now officially on the shortlist for the Student Award. I’m one of six finalists in my catagory! Unfortunately it looks as if I will be unable to make the event due to work commitments, I’m gonna see if I can move things about so I can go! Keeping my fingers crossed!

I was recommended at the end of 2010 academic year to put my Storyscape website into this years BIMA Awards ( British Interactive Media Association). I have been keeping my eye on their site and was pleased to see that they are now open for entries. Fortunately they also have a student section which is where I have entered my project. Again I’m keeping my fingers crossed, you can only try!
Recently I decided that it was about time I entered some things I have produced into various competitions and award boards to keep me busy over the summer. The RTS Awards stand for Royal Television Society and on inspection I found out that they do consider online projects as long as they fit the criteria. I will be posting my entry on Monday for my final year major project – www.storyscape.co.uk which is a site based on collaborative storytelling for children. Read more…
Shan Robins presents a feature called Woman’s Half Hour on The Source FM (Falmouth and Penryn Community radio). She asked if I would like to take part in an interview explaining a bit about the Storyscape project. Storyscape is an online storytelling community I have worked on for the last 9 months and Shan wanted me to feature in the next Woman’s Half Hour.
