Posted:Hello everyone and welcome to PLAY FESTIVAL 2007!!



Please forgive me for the lack of info, I have no computer to use and it'll be a few weeks more until I'm able to update it more often. I'll come back and put more up as and when I can.



Hopefully most of this info you'll have gotten from our newsletter, if not sign up to it on the website now! www.playfestival.co.uk



We had a wonderful 5 days last year and can only say that 2007 will be even better!



Thanks to everyone who came last year and who gave us feedback on what they thought of the festival, we've taken all comments on board and hope we can make the festival one that you'll enjoy even more than the last.



The dates for this years festival will be Wednesday 25th - Sunday 29th July and we will be at the same venue, Fordhall Farm in Market Drayton, Shropshire. The tickets will be 35 in advance and 40 on the door, that will include most workshops, 4 nights camping, the shows and other entertainments during the festival



We have lots planned for this years festival, more areas to play in with the emphasis on getting everyone involved, we will have a proper go at the world record after last years attempt didn't go so well (although it does look awesome on video!!!) and of course the usual abundance of workshops to keep you all busy in the day.

We'll have two stages this year, the main stage/tent and and nice little caberet tent, a solar powered cinema, a PROPER bar & food tent and a few more folks selling the stuff you want to buy (even if you don't realise it yet! heheh)



New for this year will be the PLAY HOP Amateur Performance of the year. It's a little competition we've come up with that can be entered by anyone for any type of performance. No more than 4 minutes long with a cash prize for the winner and the chance to feature on the next PLAY DVD. As you might guess from the title the event is sponsored by HomeofPoi.com (who have proudly given us the prizes for our games over the last two years). More details will follow soon...



The DVD of last years festival will be out at some point, probably exactly at the time we plan it to come out wink Focusing more on spreading knowledge to learn the arts than the last DVD and we're sure it'll knock your socks off!



If you want to contact us about anything please email us at one of the following addresses:



info@playfestival.co.uk



comments@playfestival.co.uk



volunteers@playfestival.co.uk



traders@playfestival.co.uk



If anyone wants specific footage from last years festival please wait until after the DVD is out, Strugz & co are busy enough editing the full thing to start making cuts for people! Thanks smile



As my internet access is sporadic at best till my pc is up and running, I might not be able to reply to email straight away, if you want to talk to me about anything call me on 07814 018091 and if you don't get an answer LEAVE A VOICEMAIL!



Keep checking the website for the latest information and we'll send out newsletters as often as we can.





hugs & smiles



Dunc hug

Posted:No, not really! but: -

* you need to change the lightning direction on the guy and the raft to match the scenery

* take off the trans-ethnic surgery you've given Strugz...

* the tree branch and leaves in the foreground has ended up behind the guys as well, making them look like midgets floating above the chair...

(Now's who's sad?)

offtopic tongue

Anyone going to Glade festival the week before? If so are they heading straight from Glade to here?

Posted:ok

if you wnat to be that pickie

i need to sit the raft evenly in the water, and it need to match the view points of the scene anyway.

i need to create the ripples in the water from the raft,

i need to resize the raft to get it to match the size of the other objects on the picture

so yes, i knwo its not done right

but as the basic view point of the shot have been blown to shot, and the basics have been ignored, i thought it quite a nice t ouch that it was colour balanced,

have you even seen my hop lights, now that was a nicely balanced creation smile

Yup, I agree but I manage out of necessity and sheer obsessive compulsive disorder! I was just highlighting that I could outdo you on the sadness front! (C'mon, would YOU have spent time drawing a frog doing contact staff just to post as a response to a certain blond frenchman referring to himself and his kin as 'frog-staffers') I need to get a graphic tablet for myself now...

although having said that there hasn't been much new news to talk about cause some people are taking their sweet project ping time tongue



hmm, i wonder, anyone given thought to what games they'll be this year? i'm going to put forth dizzy-juggling-piggyback-bulldog-gladiators cause it's bound to end in a huge hippy pile upon the floor - which will quickly result in a huge hippy Pile On (!) upon the floor! dunno if they'll do it but i'd totally join in if they do! - at least if i'm on the top of the pile - i got crushed extreme to the max last year in every pile on - you would've thought i'd learnt my lesson! hug



and hey tent buddy! (wingz to everyone else tongue) woohoo you're back on hop! bout time missy!
