I had the very good fortune of being asked to present at a teacher preview evening at the Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre. This CPD event was aimed at teachers interested in Moving Image Education and also gave the Arts Centre the opportunity to showcase their up-coming Discovery Film Festival for young people.
I decided to use my 20 minutes to showcase Endless Ocean and the work that has been done by Kim Aplin and her class up in Meldrum Primary School. It was sheer bliss getting the chance to play Endless Ocean on the cinema screen, what a blast! My next house will have a wall that size, I will make sure of it ;-)
I have talked about Endless Ocean before in previous blog posts but I just wanted to show a wee video of a competitor to Endless Ocean that is coming over the horizon. Take a look at Aqua for the PS3 which is due out next year:
This looks phenomenal. Also some screen shots can be viewed here.
The PS3 looks as though it will go from strength to strength in terms of becoming a device that can be used in classrooms as more material like this comes out. Looking forward to trying this one but still beguiled by Endless Ocean...
