Today is the second time the YAPA students have met in HUMlab for the final part of the project. The students started playing Black Ops, Sims 3, Little Big Planet 2 and Lord of the Rings in order to get used to the programs before they start the machinima project. At the end of the day, we imported machinima clips into iMovie 11 to start learning to edit. There was not a lot of formal instruction today, rather today was a day to play and explore the different games and worlds.
I think my favorite moment was when a group of girls started playing Lord of the Rings, and others came and helped. The girl playing said, excitedly that she had never played an adventure game, but that it was very fun.
