Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Preparing for the arsTechnologika gallery exhibit

The art of the Fort Vancouver Mobile project recently was accepted into the annual faculty and student art show at the North Bank Gallery in downtown Vancouver. The December show, called arsTechnologika, will feature an entire room dedicated to the FVM project.
So today was our first day in the space. Fort Vancouver Ranger Mike Twist and carpenter / blacksmith volunteer Lee Pisarek (the one with the large beard), were the primary helpers / builders, and our two FVM videographers, Troy Wayrynen and Forrest Burger, both stopped by and offered design tips. Here are a few pictures:

Lee and Mike looking over the empty space, what we began with this morning.

Picking up supplies, including the plastic pipe that we would use for the frame for the historic backdrop.
Removing the door of the space, to get to work on the frame; frame pieces on the ground.

Lots of Gorilla tape and industrial strength velcro.

The backdrop, a recreation of one used in a play aboard a ship in the mid-1800s, is up.

Not sure yet what to do with the bear pelt; so Mike modeled it.

Putting in the barrels, pelts, blankets, etc.; time to call it a day.
