Bricks’n’Clips

Designing and building the first ATLAS model made of interconnectable plastic bricks (that’s what you name it if you cannot name it) was just the first of many things to be done.

After fighting and writing unsuccessfully to a whole bunch of people, I seem to have finally found the right person to be able to get hands on more bricks for more models. We’ll probably end up with models at quite a few institutes and exhibitions all around the world. But this is still work and mainly organisation in progress …

Besides that I started recording the construction manual video. After a first, slightly unsuccessful, attempt in my living room at home (I specifically set up lighting and a plate on top of my foosball table) and went out to collaboration with our media/outreach section. Today we have finally managed to set up a scene at the institute and started taking a few first shots. Due to the above mentioned collaboration and the resulting increase in professionalism (great camera, an actual camera operator, lighting and editing) I was convinced to shoot an intro clip. Which turned out to be the only thing we managed within today’s two hour session …
to my defence it features three different camera settings and three different languages (English, Danish, German)!

So there has been a lot of progress …
Still, there is also a lot of progress to be made ;)
