    • Collaborative Virtual Worlds Survival Guide - AMP Jun07 quot;It was a totally immersive and focused, overwhelming experience - nothing like I've experienced beforequot; quot;This has definitely been one of the best experiences of my life. Thankyou!quot; quot;LAMP helped solidify confidence in the concept and creating a truly viable cross media platform.quot; quot;Well structured, highly relevant information, carefully structured word flow, excellent tutelage, nurturing, humane and humorous.quot; quot;We invented our project and were supported by people who were generous and helpful, people who we wouldnt normally have access to.quot; quot;We developed an idea from scratch, expanded it from POV of a user (not the film maker) which was excellent.quot; quot;Very professionally and thoughtfully structured, clearly the result of experience - worked very well.quot; quot;Very busy and intense but very useful.quot; quot;This workshop managed to elicit maximum product output and intelligent project implementation with a minimum of fuss.quot; quot;What a privilege! All participants were challenged to reach for and achieve far reaching goals but were also totally supported in the endeavour by a united team of razor sharp professionals. quot; quot;This was a highly productive, intensive session whereby all outside distractions were eliminated letting us focus solely on the job.quot; quot;There was enormous value with mentor input, creative support from other participants and developers and insight from industry. quot; quot;Superb, empathetic, committed facilitators enacted a disciplined, purposeful approach towards clear creative outcomesquot; quot;Seamlessquot; quot;Perfect. Seriously its a great balance of challenges and support. A full process that ties in wellquot; quot;Our guardian mentor was crucial, providing not only support but also challenges, nurturing and encouragementquot; quot;The mentor presentations excellent, technical support brilliant, pace was exhausting but productivequot; quot;LAMP gave our project a deep focus and contextual awareness that made the idea much richerquot; quot;LAMP gave me clarification, I found a vocabulary and a voicequot; quot;Its a boot camp that canon-balls the development of an idea with great speed. quot; quot;Intensely challenging, Incredibly professional, Invigorating and fun. I feel cared for and respected.quot; quot;Intense dialogue helped us understand what each partner values and wants to achieve then how to communicate our interest to the outside worldquot; quot;I was transformed and uplifted with new confidence, a new sense of possibility. Now I get to go and make new rules in an exciting frontier.quot; quot;Flawlessquot; quot;Extremely intense, highly thought provoking and challengingquot; quot;Amazing luxury to have so many diverse mentors. Well paced, well moderated , well supported.quot; quot;Access to such varied input from many different perspectives forced us to evaluate what was the really important feature, core of the project and what was right for itquot; quot;A rollercoaster ride of information - an intensive hothouse experiencequot; Gary Hayes, Head of MUVE, The Project Factory & Director LAMP @ AFTRS. gary@theprojectfactory.com blog www.personalizemedia.com
