I’ve added a new page for collecting linked-to projects to the sidebar. The first is the Flash piece Stoning Field, a work of fiction planned in Storyspace and then realized in Flash. Stoning Field is a presentation with vexing loading and organizational problems, which I still don’t think I’ve solved. The loader elements between each destination space represent a compromize, a negociation in file size because of the incorporation of video, which I tried to trim to bare minimum without losing quality. In Stoning Field video used as an element of narrative time. Unfortunately, loading may trump the potential aesthetic of the read. But there you go.
The tools used for the project included: Eastgate Systems’ Storyspace, Macromedia Flash MX, Adobe Audition, Dominic Mazzoni’s Audacity, Adobe Premiere, and Microsoft Movie Maker.
