Doggiestyle presentation ict

  1. 1. DOGGIESTYLE: Planning, Research and Evidence Group Members: Anna Weir Louise Hannaford Aleena Khusro
  2. 2. Objectives• To teach teenager and children how to look after pet dogs.• Promote awareness of mongrels and stray, ill dogs in Hong Kong.• To produce videos of at-least one minute detailing our cause and other various subjects.• To learn how to do split-screen/cloning editing on i-movie for such films.• To creates a forum for visitors to post in.• Create a group on facebook to boost awareness.• To shoot our videos in HD.• Learn how to make stop-motion animations using hand drawn drawings and editing them on Photoshop/flash.• To find tutorials and then create a short comic series describing the lives of stray animals.• To demonstrate tips on how to choose the right animal when adopting, and how to introduce them comfortably to their new home.
  3. 3. DescriptionThe motive of our project is, overall, to promote welfare for animals who need our help. We plan to create awareness using a variety of different medias, all of which can be found on our site. Such medias could include videos, comic strips, creative writing and informative writing. We will also create a forum where we can take requests for our next post on thesite, where people can discuss their own personal experiences and where they can offer their own tips and suggestions.
  4. 4. OutcomesWe will generate awareness and supports among young people, and hopefully encourage many of them and their parents to adopt and care for their own pets from centers who need help finding homes for animals. We hope to successfully promote such awareness through properly executing the tasks we have set for ourselves - such as the video and comic strips etc.
  5. 5. Success criteriaIn order to judge our success with this project, we have come up with several things to help:-before the submitting of our project, we will conduct a survey asking whether or not our site and videos have:-provided good tips-have been convinced people to adopt new pets-have an overall positive response from the public-If our client is satisfied with the finished products, videos, and the overall way we have put across their message.
  6. 6. 8/9/11• We carried out some research on finding some good website builders that are not pay sights.• We found a website called Moon fruit and we got as far as signing up and then realized it was a pay sight.
  7. 7. TUMBLR - 8/9/11We started up and ‘official’ Tumblr page for our project. Tumblr is an amazing blogging site, where you can post videos, photos, test posts, share and reblog each other’s posts. It is a potentially very useful site for our project, and we will be personally managing the blog as well as do the arty parts of out project. To add a bit of Colour to our page, we will be reblogging a variety of animal photos until we can get our first few videos and artworks online. If there are also any other awareness blogs or posts, we will be reblogging from them.
  8. 8. 15/9/11• We created our website with a web builder called: Webs• We added to the site some information about us• We also put across our mission, for the public to be able to understand our purpose.• We will keep continuing with further editing
  9. 9. 22/9/11 Today, we made contact with our client and they would be happy if we represented them and to send them our work as we do it. We researched various tutorials for Final Cut as we havent used it much before:• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHfFc9GOTWQ. We also continued working on the homepage of our website. By next week, we need to have made a storyboard for our videos.
  10. 10. 26/9/11• So far, we have visited many different websites and have collected a few tutorials that we need for our videos. How to Clone, How to do Basic Effects, and How to Add Titles. We have also finished the storyboard for our first video, "What you need to buy when adopting a dog” (Photo on the next slide) This includes camera angles and the props/setting needed. We will do this for most of the videos we will post on our site.
  11. 11. First Contact - 21/9/11Last week, we sent over a student enquiry email to Hong Kong Dog Rescue andwithin two days we got a reply. Kathleen Kuok, the HKDRs Education and OutreachManager, replied and pretty much said its a go. Anna and Louise will be in contactwith her while Aleena works on the website.
  12. 12. 27/9/11 After some research on website builders, we have finalized the site we are going to use for the Website. We are using http://www.webs.com/. We did some research on what we should have on a site and we found that the most important things are:• A home page• A section that tells people who we are and what our purpose is• A forum page for discussing different topics and a page that gives links to all our pages on different websites e.g. facebook. We have also found that the site should be vibrant and colorful to attract the public. We have added information regarding our purpose and a bit of information about the group. This is to give a clear message to the public on what our website offers and what it is about. We have also added a forum page as it was a popular aspect of a website according to out research.
  13. 13. 5/10/11We also carried out a survey by asking some questions that have something to do with our project. Who we asked: A selection of students from years 7, 8 and 9 How we asked them: We went around to the form rooms at lunchtimes Why? Because when you send Survey Monkey emails, most students normally just ignore them, automatically delete them, or provide false information. We think our method is more reliable because it means we can collect more data and our results will be more reliable. It also means we can record additional comments made by our target audience.

  18. 18. Starting A Comic SeriesLouise had suggested the idea of making a comic and we felt that it was a good idea. Louise had been looking at several comic series featuring animals. Among her favorites is the series “Pull Down Heaven” by moonsongwolf (screen name) and “wurr” by Finnish artist E. Jokinen. The reason Louise chose to feature pull down heaven and Wurr is because both are stylized, however one is in Colour and on is in monocolours. She loves how well each style works for each comic, and she is still deciding about whether to do the comic in Colour or not. To begin the process, she has taken a look at a few tutorials to help her out with the process and she is currently developing the main character for it.
