Welcome to CollabHub! Jon helping us prepare.
Last night we had the second meeting of this academic year. A social event in a more relaxed environment.
Pitches from Rob Rideout (music happenings), Elias Merino (location sound and geolocation compositions), Alex Johansson (computer games) Daniel Atkins (all kinds of collaborators for a summer festival)
Presentations of Alex and Will’s Trenchbrain game (a collaboration that was seeded through CollabHub and is leading to paid professional work through their growing partnership), and the stunning interactive project with Darius, Will and local artist Dex Hannon. Words can express how inspiring this is.
Also our special guest speakers, Nic, Sam and Stacey who are now co-directors of Fifth Planet (http://www.facebook.com/fifthplanetuk/info). Not only did your videos inspire me to want to study at Huddersfield, but your drive, determination and talent really showed the other students what is possible…
Thank you to The University of Huddersfield for equipment and especially to Coffeevolution for being amazing host.
A few more pictures, and many more to follow. I hope that Daniel won’t mind me quoting him from the Facebook group:
“Just to say, I went to the CollabHub ‘get-together’ last night to see what it was all about and it was the most worthwhile evening I’ve had in Huddersfield so far! The place was full of inspiring people, who are desperate to collaborate. If anyone wants to help Joe and myself put on an outdoor music festival around May/ June time just let one of us know (you don’t need to be Michael Eavis). Thank you to Fifth Planet Productions C.I.C for your speech – absolutely brilliant and I look forward to working with you “
Apologies for the grainy images – Jon took lots of video and I will upload nicer images soon…
