So after our presentation in front of the panel for Project 3, Apple and I decided to go forward with this idea of a ‘gaming highlight’ within a social network such as Twitter – to see if we can build upon this concept to create something different.
So during week 9’s Monday lecture, after getting more feedback on this concept, we narrowed our idea down for project 4 – the idea of essentially exploring gaming videos through several forms and formats and placed on a social Twitter.
To specify, the title of our work (subject to change) is essentially ‘a gaming highlights vlog/blog’ – what it means is what it sounds like, we plan on exploring how we can utilize how Twitter is structured to create a gaming community through usages of different types of highlights and forms in which they may be presented in – e.g. images, gifs, videos, etc.
I’ve got a two ideas we can work with that I explored through Twitter over here.
The first being an experimentation if I could create a ‘trend’ within the gaming community by using hash tags. This works very much like every other trend however, it’s specifically directed towards the gaming community – allowing for a more narrow and straight forward piece of work harboring a pretty non-narrative structure.
The second experimentation I focused on actually trying to create a ‘timeline’ of events that were apart of a much longer and larger recording session. This felt more like a ‘mini blog’ of what I was doing in the session – something I could expand on if I focused on much more than just the recording session.
