So, it's my last day at NTW today, and I just wanted to say a 'goodbye and thankyou' to you all!
The last two and a half years have been an absolute pleasure, and I've had a ball- getting to know you all, and the glorious people of Wales... From Mountains to Forests, High streets to Arts centres, Warehouses to Waterfalls.. It's been one glorious adventure, I've loved every minute- thank you!
Here are some of my favourite photos from the last couple of…Continue
So, hopefully you will have heard by now, but just a reminder that tomorrow (Sunday 14th September) National Theatre Wales will be LIVE FROM SNOWDON. That's right, we're streaming HD from the side of a mountain! Very exciting! …Continue
Recife is full of Stories. Walking around the city with any of the locals and you're absorbed by them, attracted to their charm and their sense of place.
Most of the stories are located in a place within the city, for example there's this plaque (pictured above) which tells the story of an old beggar woman who died recently, they say that she was secretly rich…Continue

Some of you might remember that last Autumn we collaborated with Watershed, Bristol to produce a Digital Producers Labs programme for a group of 12 Digital Producers from Wales.
Supported by Arts Council Wales, Watershed’s Digital Producers Lab was the first programme of its kind to take place in the country. It aims to train a brilliant cohort of Digital Producers, who will go on to support each other, create new business opportunities and enable audiences to…Continue
Last year we began a research project into online collaboration through our project The Studio, which is funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. We started by working with four small focus groups, who used tools like the NTW community, Skype, Facebook and email to share ideas, thoughts and feedback as they began to make new work together. For some, that collaboration resulted in a project that…Continue

I've just been looking at the analytics from the Livestream of The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning in Edinburgh, and I thought you might be interested in some of the headline figures about the livestream.
We had 4 CCTV cameras and 10 microphones (6 radio mics, 4 handheld) feeding into 1 mixing desk that fed into 1 vision mixer and encoder, and 1 laptop computer. We had 12 meters of ethernet cable connected to 1 router, connected by 22 meters of coax…Continue

Well, I had one of those moments last night when it was taking me 7 seconds to load a web page. I was getting incredibly frustrated, which resulted in me either swearing at, or trying to reconfigure all the various bits of tech that surrounded me at the Livestream control point of The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning, which is showing at the Edinburgh Fringe (and online) until 25th August. …Continue

It was a bit of a climb, but I found some 3g.
It's interesting as Digital Associate to be removed from a strong wifi / data connection for more than say, 3 hours. It's fair to say that I'm not that great at being disconnected. And though I do advocate for taking time off from the internet every once in a while, when you're trying to get work done, or when you're on holiday, being with out 3g for large chunks of the day…Continue
