Exquisite project being developed by Morgan Tams. Click the “view the film” link to see the Korsakow film that is under development by Morgan. It’s expected to be finished by the end of this week.
Kate Nash, who’s work we read earlier in the semester, has a post at her new university (she was a keynote at this year’s i-Docs conference, one of the major international events dedicated to interactive documentary for makers and thinkers).
- Donald Norman and affordances here and here.
- Haptic interfaces
- film grammar, English grammar
- Umberto Eco, and The Infinity of Lists, and on amazon.
- Janet Murray, Inventing the Medium
- Marie Laure Ryan on puzzle metaphors, and on narrative and the digital
Elegant, sorts of projects I hope we are able to begin making together in the future.
UPDATE: These assessment sessions with Adrian (you attend all of the session) will be held in 9.2.09, that is the glass walled meeting room in the student area of level 2 in building 9.
These are the assessment times and people’s for the sketch film assessment for Adrian Miles’ students (tuesday 2:30).

What is being uploaded to the web server is a folder that is named firstname.lastname and inside that folder is the index.html and data folder that Korsakow export. Do not export your .krw file (the Korsakow project file) or your original video and thumbnails. They are not needed, and potentially a 10 or 20 minute upload will become a 2 hour wait if there is lots of high definition images and videos being uploaded.
ALL YOUR PROJECT NEEDS TO RUN IS THE INDEX.HTML FILE AND ALL THE STUFF THAT KORSAKOW PUTS IN THE DATA FOLDER.
Korsakow is software. It lets you make and publish multilinear video (and sound) works online. That is pretty much all you use it for and all it does.
Some questions: why do we use it? What might Continue reading
The submission form for the essay:
- the essay submission form, you need to be logged in to Google using your RMIT google ID for it to work (that way we know it is you)
- it is text only, if you have screenshots, images, put them in blog post/page, and include url with your submission
These are more notes from 2011, and are the various strategies and things I’ve learned through using Korsakow that make using the program simpler, or at least easier.
To really understand what you’re doing (if you are interested, otherwise potter around), then read the Korsakow manual, the faq, the quick-start guide, tips and tricks, and tutorials. These will be more up to date than mine below, which are largely based on the common problems that seem to have turned up in classes. Continue reading
This is a cut and paste from stuff I put together in 2011. It holds good today.
This is one of the most important things to understand when using this software (and this applies to all projects on a computer!). Understand:
- what files are needed
- where they are needed to be
- and have a system that is easy to use that achieves this
- have a method for naming, storing, finding the media assets that your project needs
- keep your media assets in the same place for the life of your project
- same with your project and the export folder
