It was the MotionPlymouth Gala last night with movie star glamour as the dress code which I think we carried off really well. It was a fitting end to a great 2 days which unfortunately I didn’t get to see much of due to Noogy and compiling and editing the entrants for Openreel but I’ve only heard positive things said about it. The winners of each of the categories were announced and awarded their prizes but for me, the one that stood out was Nick Ward’s “Denise at Sixteen”. Not just because it is a fantastic film but because it was one of the first films we showed at Openreel way back in March. Well done Nick.
Noogy went live this evening. He’s a digital pet that lives in Portland Square and can be seen on a large led display. He uses Arch-OS as a nervous system so if the temperature drops then he is cold, or if the amount of water used is low then he is thirsty. But his personality and interacting with him via text is pure Stanley as developed by Jamie and me. You can interact with him by walking thru the building or by texting to 07766404142 starting your message with noogy followed by your question. It’s part of MotionPlymouth and will only be there until 19th November so you’ll have to get your skates on to chat to him.

MotionPlymouth launched today at the Big Screen and as Openreel is one of the official partners I went along. MotionPlymouth is a two-day festival which aims to illuminate the city, showing off giant projections, light-art and installations over 16th and 17th November. More details and how to enter the competition can be found on the website.
