  and derivative works in OER

SYNOPSIS
“The Cosmonaut” is a story about memory and desire. Even those memories
that exist only in one’s imagination.”
October 1975. Stan prepares to become the first Russian cosmonaut on the
Moon. Andrei, his best friend, manages the mission.
In the tense last days before departure, Stan thinks about Yulia, the woman they
both have been in love with since her arrival to the City of the Stars, more than
ten years ago.
They finalize the details of the mission, but just two days after takeoff the
spacecraft loses communication with Earth. For seven months, Andrei and Yulia
look for him day and night without rest.
                   One day the ship returns to Earth. After it falls, there is no trace
                   of the cosmonaut.
                   The confusion increases with the beginning of a series of radio
                   transmissions: Stan is speaking from an undisclosed location. He
                   says that he’s back on Earth and claims to have found it empty.
                   Little by little, a new, strange and dangerous triangle begins to
                   take form.
Key elements of the project:
       Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding: the budget




Crowdfunding assumption in the plan: 6.6 of total budget, it 52.000 €

“The Cosmonaut uses a license that extends the
  concept of copyright and allows — under
  certain conditions — the film to be distributed
  freely, copied, modified and remixed;
  generating new works based on the original
  material. This creates endless new business
  opportunities and broadens the mass
  distribution.”

The Cosmonaut: an experience
               Events with a high
               participation present a huge
               possibility for brands to get
               involved. As the project
               moves on there will be more
               and of larger
               magnitude, with live
               connections in different
               events and cities, creating a
               very special event the day of
               the film’s premiere.

         Robert Pratten (1st prize)

         I've been following The Cosmonaut's
         project for sometime and a chance to play
         with the beautiful imagery was too much
         to pass up. I downloaded all the materials
         and spent a little time with a cup of tea
         browsing through everything.
         I loved all the photographic images and
         thought they conveyed the mood of an
         old-school style sci-fi movie more than the
         clean video footage. Hence I ran with the
         idea of the cosmonaut's fractured memory
         and used the photographic images to
         convey glimpses of his past -
         jumbled, distorted, fleeting. I decided to
         create a trailer that intrigued more than it
         informed.
Fostering collaboration through
          transmedia:
Transmedia OER -
possible language
learning activities:
•making up phone calls between
the characters
•writing the last letters between
Stan and Yulia
•producing Stan’s radio messages
or video diaries
•thinking of alternative endings
•writing and acting new scenes
•acting some scenes based on the
script
•translating the script or the
poems, both into other languages
and into other settings or media
•dubbing or subtitling the trailers
(both for real and spoof versions)
•using the photos to describe
people, places and situations, or
as a stimulus for creative writing

Comments from our teachers
“I know what resources are in LORO because I
   usually have a browse every few weeks to see if
   there have been any new entries. In search for
   inspiration, I also explore what other courses
   have to offer.”
“The way I use LORO in preparation for a tutorial is
   that I check the LORO materials for a given topic
   before starting to plan my tutorial. The main
   reason for this is that, even if I don’t find anything
   I can use, it starts the ideas flowing in my head.”
Comments from our teachers
“…sharing the resources I have created with
  colleagues is an essential part of the way I work
  and I believe a tool like LORO fulfils this. But
  sometimes I wouldn’t upload material in LORO
  because I’m unsure about the copyright issues.”
“In terms of my own teaching practice, I think that
  sharing the resources I have created with
  colleagues is a way forward, but I have some
  reservations, for example, in terms of sharing
  copyrighted materials.”

  Imagine the settings and characters
• You are on the movie team, and you’re in charge of
  the settings and accessories. Imagine everything
  you’ll need in order to film the scenes.
• You can use the following table :


Places : indoors or         People : what do they look like,
outdoors, kind of           what are they wearing, and
building, surroundings or   objects do they have with them,
furniture, etc.             etc.
English extract 1
                                 Sign: 1961

Khruschev, sitting in a terrace together with other people, watches the blast-
  off of a huge rocket. He is surrounded by people in suits. Some waiters pass
     by them serving something on the table. One of them gets closer and
   whispers something in his ear. The roar of the engines makes the glasses
                                 move on the table.

                                   MEN 1
                What are you going to answer Kennedy?
    Khruschev laughs self-satisfied keeping his eye on the rocket rising.

                                KHRUSCHEV
                      If we are going to the moon, we
                              are going alone.
English extract 2
                              STAR CITY STREETS. EXT. DAY
   Andrei and Stan arrive to Star City in a bus with other new recruits. They are two
    young, handsome, and strong soldiers, about twenty five years old. Stan wears a
      pilot jacket. They look at each other and laugh excited. Stan has two pieces of
                             cotton with dried blood in his nose.

                                        STAN
                           Are you sure we are gonna meet
                                 more girls in here?

                                      ANDREI
                        Are you crazy? It’s gonna be wild.
The bus moves through the city, watching everyday scenes: cosmonaut wives walking
                  with their children, some cars, soldiers patrolling.

                                     ANDREI
                     How far from Moscow do you think we are?

Stan shrugs. They hear a couple of fighters passing by and everyone stick their faces to
                           the bus window looking up to them.

El cosmonauta
            (actividad basada en http://elcosmonauta.es/the_plan_light.pdf, sinopsis)


El Cosmonauta es una historia que habla del recuerdo y del deseo.
Incluso de los recuerdos que solamente son deseos.
Octubre de 1975: Stan se prepara para ser el primer cosmonauta ruso
en la Luna. Andrei, su mejor amigo, dirige la misión. En los tensos días
antes de la partida, Stan piensa en Yulia, la mujer de la que ambos llevan
enamorados desde su llegada a la Ciudad de la Estrellas, más de diez
años atrás.
Ultiman los detalles de la misión, pero apenas dos días después de
despegar, la nave pierde toda comunicación con la Tierra…

Continuará…
Para ayudar a estructurar ideas:
Responde a estas preguntas:
• ¿Qué?
• ¿Quiénes?
• ¿Dónde?
• ¿Cuándo?
• ¿Qué crees que pasará después?
P.ej.: La chica se casará con el astronauta más guapo y
   vivirán felices y comerán perdices…

Creative cosmos, film, creativity and derivative work in OER

  • 1. Creative Cosmos: film, creativity and derivative works in OER Tita Beaven and Anna Comas-Quinn Department of Languages, The Open University
  • 2. SYNOPSIS “The Cosmonaut” is a story about memory and desire. Even those memories that exist only in one’s imagination.” October 1975. Stan prepares to become the first Russian cosmonaut on the Moon. Andrei, his best friend, manages the mission. In the tense last days before departure, Stan thinks about Yulia, the woman they both have been in love with since her arrival to the City of the Stars, more than ten years ago. They finalize the details of the mission, but just two days after takeoff the spacecraft loses communication with Earth. For seven months, Andrei and Yulia look for him day and night without rest. One day the ship returns to Earth. After it falls, there is no trace of the cosmonaut. The confusion increases with the beginning of a series of radio transmissions: Stan is speaking from an undisclosed location. He says that he’s back on Earth and claims to have found it empty. Little by little, a new, strange and dangerous triangle begins to take form.
  • 3. Key elements of the project: Crowdfunding
  • 4. Crowdfunding: the budget Crowdfunding assumption in the plan: 6.6 of total budget, it 52.000 € Crowdfunding so far 190.829 €, i.e. 20% of the total budget
  • 5. Creative Commons “The Cosmonaut uses a license that extends the concept of copyright and allows — under certain conditions — the film to be distributed freely, copied, modified and remixed; generating new works based on the original material. This creates endless new business opportunities and broadens the mass distribution.” The plan
  • 6. Creative commons licences in the project The Plan
  • 7. Community engagement ¿Hay algo que quieras contarnos? hola@elcosmonauta.es
  • 8. Fostering collaboration through community engagement
  • 9. Champions from the community
  • 11. The Cosmonaut: an experience Events with a high participation present a huge possibility for brands to get involved. As the project moves on there will be more and of larger magnitude, with live connections in different events and cities, creating a very special event the day of the film’s premiere. The plan
  • 12. Derivative work Robert Pratten (1st prize) I've been following The Cosmonaut's project for sometime and a chance to play with the beautiful imagery was too much to pass up. I downloaded all the materials and spent a little time with a cup of tea browsing through everything. I loved all the photographic images and thought they conveyed the mood of an old-school style sci-fi movie more than the clean video footage. Hence I ran with the idea of the cosmonaut's fractured memory and used the photographic images to convey glimpses of his past - jumbled, distorted, fleeting. I decided to create a trailer that intrigued more than it informed.
  • 14. Transmedia OER - possible language learning activities: •making up phone calls between the characters •writing the last letters between Stan and Yulia •producing Stan’s radio messages or video diaries •thinking of alternative endings •writing and acting new scenes •acting some scenes based on the script •translating the script or the poems, both into other languages and into other settings or media •dubbing or subtitling the trailers (both for real and spoof versions) •using the photos to describe people, places and situations, or as a stimulus for creative writing
  • 16. Comments from our teachers “I know what resources are in LORO because I usually have a browse every few weeks to see if there have been any new entries. In search for inspiration, I also explore what other courses have to offer.” “The way I use LORO in preparation for a tutorial is that I check the LORO materials for a given topic before starting to plan my tutorial. The main reason for this is that, even if I don’t find anything I can use, it starts the ideas flowing in my head.”
  • 17. Comments from our teachers “…sharing the resources I have created with colleagues is an essential part of the way I work and I believe a tool like LORO fulfils this. But sometimes I wouldn’t upload material in LORO because I’m unsure about the copyright issues.” “In terms of my own teaching practice, I think that sharing the resources I have created with colleagues is a way forward, but I have some reservations, for example, in terms of sharing copyrighted materials.”

  • 20. OER using the script
  • 21. Français – étape 1 • Regarde les bande-annonces et essaye de deviner de quoi parle le film et ce qui se passe. • Boîte à outils : – Je pense que… , j’imagine que… + indicatif. – Adverbes : peut- être, probablement, certainement, sans doute… – Il est possible que… + subjonctif
  • 22. English Imagine the settings and characters • You are on the movie team, and you’re in charge of the settings and accessories. Imagine everything you’ll need in order to film the scenes. • You can use the following table : Places : indoors or People : what do they look like, outdoors, kind of what are they wearing, and building, surroundings or objects do they have with them, furniture, etc. etc.
  • 23. English extract 1 Sign: 1961 Khruschev, sitting in a terrace together with other people, watches the blast- off of a huge rocket. He is surrounded by people in suits. Some waiters pass by them serving something on the table. One of them gets closer and whispers something in his ear. The roar of the engines makes the glasses move on the table. MEN 1 What are you going to answer Kennedy? Khruschev laughs self-satisfied keeping his eye on the rocket rising. KHRUSCHEV If we are going to the moon, we are going alone.
  • 24. English extract 2 STAR CITY STREETS. EXT. DAY Andrei and Stan arrive to Star City in a bus with other new recruits. They are two young, handsome, and strong soldiers, about twenty five years old. Stan wears a pilot jacket. They look at each other and laugh excited. Stan has two pieces of cotton with dried blood in his nose. STAN Are you sure we are gonna meet more girls in here? ANDREI Are you crazy? It’s gonna be wild. The bus moves through the city, watching everyday scenes: cosmonaut wives walking with their children, some cars, soldiers patrolling. ANDREI How far from Moscow do you think we are? Stan shrugs. They hear a couple of fighters passing by and everyone stick their faces to the bus window looking up to them.

  • 26. El cosmonauta (actividad basada en http://elcosmonauta.es/the_plan_light.pdf, sinopsis) El Cosmonauta es una historia que habla del recuerdo y del deseo.

En los tensos días antes de la partida, Stan piensa en Yulia, la mujer de la que ambos llevan enamorados desde su llegada a la Ciudad de la Estrellas, más de diez años atrás. Ultiman los detalles de la misión, pero apenas dos días después de despegar, la nave pierde toda comunicación con la Tierra… Continuará…
  • 27. Para ayudar a estructurar ideas: Responde a estas preguntas: • ¿Qué? • ¿Quiénes? • ¿Dónde? • ¿Cuándo? • ¿Qué crees que pasará después? P.ej.: La chica se casará con el astronauta más guapo y vivirán felices y comerán perdices… Para saber más sobre el verdadero final de la historia ve a: http://loro.open.ac.uk/2131/
