The Are You Happy? Project

Are you happy?

The Popcorn Maker I’m going to work with in stage two of the project is now live. This wonderful tool, developed by Mozilla, “makes authoring interactive media pages as easy as point and click.”

I’ve been trying out combining the video sequences with other feeds. The tool makes Flickr, Wikipedia, Twitter available as well an enabling you to add annotation and subtitling. It’s fascinating working with it, being able so readily to juxtapose the video with other content on the page.  I’ll post some content soon.

Meanwhile, I’m happy to report that The Are you happy? Project is included as work-in-progress in the Jean Rouch International Film Festival in Paris.
