Video livestreaming through Wirecast to Persicope and out to Twitter

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

After a 7 month break, I’ve been working on being able to make quick video posts out through Twitter via Persicope generated by Wirecast software.

I have spent the last few days learning to configure a hardware switching box to make the whole process easier. I’m indebted to John at the Here to Record YouTube Channel who adapted the original code for the Korg nanoKONTROL midi controller from Mark at TTFN.

I can see this making my life a lot easier. Now for the autocue and other bits of paraphernalia to make the whole process complete.

We launch Mikeybot on Kickstarter

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Together with a few colleagues I have launched a Kickstarter campaign > theMikeybot.

This is a simple, cheap, wireless drawing and line following robot for families and schools. We haven’t had that much takeup yet (probably due to schools’ budgets being very constrained at the moment) but we’ll persevere whatever the case.

The unique thing about the robot is that it can be controlled by any computer and as part of a network hub wirelessly. Which hasn’t really been fully achieved before.

See the video here:

Pre-filming test 1

Posted on by leoncych in Continual Professional Development | Comments Off on Pre-filming test 1

I’m pretty close to the look I want for a documentary I’m going to make on the state of Education, Pedagogy and Curriculum in the second decade of the 21st Century.

I’m also now much closer to completion in terms of what kit I’m going to use (for now!) – getting to grips with the technical aspects has been a running battle between time, resources, money and workarounds. Several life-events have also delayed me putting into practice my plans for such a film.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be putting up further filmed tests to compare cameras and lighting systems but at the moment I’m going for a highly portable mobile solution. I may just use this to model the use of higher specc’d cameras for the final film.

After that it will be down to researching and writing the scripts, hunting out locations and people then putting it all together. When the time comes I’ll be putting up a Patreon Page and launching an Indiegogo crowd-funding site.

I imagine the whole process will take 2 years+ from start to finish. My live-streaming work will be funding this, in the main, but I need funds for transport and accommodation whilst on the road.
