final outcome experiment...


in this video you can clearly see the photos which makes the animation looks better...

next this i am going to do is to make the shape of the logo that i made for ALIGHT event by using the photos of sheffield...it would look something like this....but this time the logo would be animated...


final outcome experiment...

video

this was just a trial that i did...as you can see the timing of images are really fast..you can't even see what is that picture about..so i have decided to change the speed so that it looks better...


final idea...

so, finally i have decided to do Photo Animation for my final outcome.after experimenting with different techniques i found this very interesting..

my ideas is to show the Photo Animation that could be used for the stare background during the performers are performing or even when no ones on the stage..

The reason why i chose to do this is because i think this is something that can keep attaché to the audience...my first choice was to do talk to people from sheffield, ask them wether if they are attending the ALIGHT event and then take a picture of them and ask them to say something about sheffield just in one sentence...collects nearly 200 photos of people with their one sentences....and then i was going to make a Photo Animation...and that photo animation could be used on the stage during the whole ALIGHT events...so the people who i spoke to they could see their photo up there on the stage...i think that is the best way to engage the audience...

but for some reason i couldn't collect the photos so decided to move on to the next idea which was rather than using the photos i took, i decided to use photos from internet...so i collected around 200 different photos of sheffield and use them to make my Photo Animation...

i think it won't be as good as what i was expecting but i think it could still work...because i have tried to get the photos which represent the city Sheffield and in that way i could still engaged the audience...

History Of Sheffield..

SHEFFIELD IN THE MIDDLE AGES

Sheffield was founded in the early 12th century by the Lord of the manor, William de Lovetot. He built a castle on the site of Castle Market. It was on an easily defended site as it had a river on the north and east. The castle had a moat on the south and west. In 1266 rebels burned Sheffield castle but it was rebuilt in 1270. The Lord also built a church on the site of Sheffield cathedral.
A little town grew up between the castle and the church. That often happened in the Middle Ages. The garrison of the castle provided a market for the townspeople's goods. Sheffield only had a population of a few hundred. It would seem tiny to us but settlements were very small in those days. A typical village had only 100 or 150 inhabitants.
Medieval Sheffield would seem more like a village than a town to us. Many of the people in the town were at least part-time farmers. They tilled the fields around the town.
Wool was made in Sheffield in the Middle Ages. After it was woven the wool was fulled. That means it was pounded in a mixture of clay and water to clean and thicken it. Wooden hammers worked by watermills pounded the wool. Afterwards it was dyed. The first cutler in Sheffield was mentioned at the end of the 13th century.
In 1297 Sheffield was given a charter (a document granting the townspeople certain rights). Sheffield was given the right to have a weekly market and an annual fair. In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year. People would come from all over South Yorkshire to attend a Sheffield fair.
By the 14th century Sheffield was beginning to be known for cutlery. In 1340 the king made an inventory of his possessions in the tower of London. These included a knife from Sheffield. About 1380 Chaucer mentioned a Sheffield 'thwitel' (general purpose knife) in his Canterbury Tales.
However there were several other towns noted for cutlery. Sheffield was by no means the most important. Furthermore some of the cutlers in Sheffield may have been part time farmers. In a small market town like Sheffield there were many other trades apart from cutler such as butcher, baker, brewer, carpenter, blacksmith and shoemaker.



SHEFFIELD IN THE 16TH CENTURY AND 17TH CENTURY

Bishop's House was built at the end of the 15th century or beginning of the 16th century. It got its name because it is supposed to have been the house where two brothers, John and Geoffrey Blythe lived. Both brothers became bishops. In the 16th century Sheffield became far more famous for its cutlery. Before 1500 watermills were adapted to grinding tools and the cutlery trade boomed. By 1600 Sheffield was the main town in England (apart from London) for cutlery.
Nevertheless there were several other trades in Sheffield apart from cutler e.g. there were weavers of wool and horners (men who made things like spoons from cow horn). In 1617 a survey showed Sheffield had a population of 2,207. By the standards of the time it was a respectably sized town though it was by no means large.
Despite the booming cutlery trade there was a great deal of poverty in Sheffield. The survey showed 725 people, about a third of the population were 'not able to live without the charity of their neighbours. They are all begging poor'. There were also many people living just above the poverty line. The survey found 160 householders who 'though they beg not are not able to abide one fortnight's sickness but they would be thereby driven to beggary'. In 1628 a workhouse where the destitute could live and be put to work was built in Sheffield.
In 1624 the Company of Cutlers was formed with power to mark artefacts if they reached a certain quality. In 1638 the first Cutlers House was built. In 1603 Thomas Crowland left money in his will to build a grammar school.
In 1642 came civil war between king and parliament. In October that year parliamentary soldiers occupied the castle but they abandoned it when a royalist army approached. The royalists took Sheffield castle and the town without a fight. However in August 1644 the parliamentarians counterattacked. The royalists made no attempt to defend the town but they tried to hold Sheffield castle. However it was forced to surrender after a short siege. In 1648 Sheffield Castle was destroyed to prevent it ever falling into royalist hands again.
By the late 17th century the population of Sheffield had probably risen to about 5,000. There was increasing specialisation of trade. As well as cutlers there were file smiths, scythe smiths, sickle smiths, woolshears smiths and awl-blade smiths.


SHEFFIELD IN THE 18TH CENTURY
        

Sheffield grew rapidly. A survey in 1763 showed it had a population of over 10,000. By the standards of the time Sheffield was a large town. In 1768 it was described as 'very large and populous but exceedingly dirty and ill paved'. Sheffield had a reputation as a grimy industrial town.
In the 18th century Sheffield's industries boomed. Sheffield was noted for its iron industry. In the early 1740s a man named Benjamin Huntsman invented a way of making better quality steel called crucible steel. Another inventor named Thomas Bolsover discovered a way of plating copper with silver. This silver plate was, of course, cheaper than silver and was very popular for things like candlesticks and teapots. In 1773 Sheffield was given its own silver assay office. In the 1750s a lead mill was built in Sheffield and about 1760 a silk mill was built. (It was later converted to a cotton mill).
Communications improved in the 18th century. By 1751 the River Don was made navigable all the way to Sheffield. Furthermore an infirmary was built in Sheffield in 1797.

SHEFFIELD IN THE 19TH CENTURY

In 1801, at the time of the first census Sheffield had a population of over 31,000. By the standards of the time it was a large town. By 1851 it had grown to over 135,000. Like all Victorian towns Sheffield was dirty and unsanitary. However even for the time Sheffield had a reputation as a grimy and dirty town (not surprising considering its heavy industries). In 1832 there was an epidemic of cholera in Sheffield which killed 402 people.
However not all the houses in Sheffield were slums. In the early 19th century a middle class suburb was built west of the town around Glossop Road.
In the working class areas of Sheffield the worst houses were back-to-backs. These houses were literally joined back to back without even an alley between them. In 1864 the authorities forbade the building of many more such houses. However those that had already been built remained.
There were, nevertheless some improvements in Sheffield during the 19th century. In 1818 an Act of Parliament formed a body of men called the Improvement Commissioners with powers to pave and clean the streets of Sheffield. They also formed a police force. From 1818 the streets of Sheffield were lit by gas.
The first cemetery in Sheffield opened in 1836. In 1830 a corn exchange where grain could be bought and sold was opened (it was later rebuilt).
In 1832 a dispensary opened in Sheffield where the poor could obtain free medicines. The present Cutlers Hall was built in 1832. In 1836 the Botanical Gardens opened. At first they were privately owned but the council purchased them in 1898.
In 1843 Sheffield was given a charter (a document giving the townspeople certain rights). From then on Sheffield had an elected town council, which gradually took over the powers of the old Improvement Commissioners. Sheffield was made a city in 1893. The Town Hall was built in 1897.
Ruskin Gallery was founded in 1875 and Mappin Art Gallery opened in 1887.
In the early 19th century a private company provided piped water. In 1859 they built a dam across Dale Dike. On March 11 1864 this dam burst. As a result 240 people drowned in Sheffield. The council took over the water supply in 1887. In the 1870s the council built sewers and drains. At first raw sewage was pumped into rivers but in 1886 a sewage treatment plant was built.
Life in Victorian Sheffield gradually improved. The first public library in Sheffield was built in 1856. From 1873 horse drawn trams ran in the streets. In 1899 the first electric trams ran in the streets of Sheffield.
During the 19th century the old industries like iron continued to boom. Then in 1856 Henry Bessemer invented a way of producing better quality steel. In 1858 he began producing steel in Sheffield. Button making flourished. However in 1840 a way was found to make silver plate by electroplating replacing the old Sheffield plate. Cutlery continued to be the dominant industry in Sheffield.



SHEFFIELD IN THE 20th CENTURY

By 1900 the population of Sheffield was over 400,000. This was partly due to boundary changes. In 1921 the boundaries were extended to include Handsworth and Wadsley. In 1935 they were altered to include Totley, Dore, Beauchief and Greenhill.
Sheffield University was founded in 1905 and the first cinema in Sheffield was built in 1910. Then in 1913 the first stainless steel was cast in Sheffield.
In 1916 Sheffield was bombed by German zeppelins leaving 28 people dead.
After World War I the heavy industries of Sheffield entered a recession. There was severe unemployment in the city in the 1920s and 1930s. However that era also marked the beginning of large-scale slum clearance. The first council houses were built in Sheffield at that time. Meanwhile Graves Art Gallery opened in 1934.
During the Second World War 589 people were killed in Sheffield by German bombing and nearly 3,000 houses were destroyed.
In the 1950s and 1960s slum clearance in Sheffield continued. Many new council houses were built in estates like Gleadless Valley. Council flats were built at Park Hill and Hyde Park. In the 1950s and 1960s many Asian and West Indian immigrants came to Sheffield. Towards the end of the 20th century the 'satellite' communities of Dronfield, Mosborough, Chapeltown and Stocksbridge grew rapidly.
Castle Market shopping centre was built in 1959. Meadow Hall shopping centre was built in 1990. Meanwhile in 1985 the Fire/Police museum opened in Sheffield.
The traditional industries in Sheffield such as iron, steel and cutlery declined in the 20th century. (Although there is still an important industry making surgical instruments). As in other cities there was a shift away from employment in manufacturing industries to jobs in service industries.
Sheffield Museum of Popular Music opened in 1991 and the Sheffield Supertram began operating in 1994. Sheffield City Airport opened in 1997.



SHEFFIELD IN THE 21st CENTURY

In the 21st century Sheffield is thriving and it is growing rapidly. Millennium Galleries opened in 2001 and the National Ice Centre opened in 2003. Also in 2003 the Winter Garden opened. Millennium Square in Sheffield opened in 2006. Today the population of Sheffield is 547,000.

things that represent sheffield...


Sheffield Town Hall is a building in the City of Sheffield, England. The building is used by Sheffield City Council, and also contains a publicly displayed collection of silverware. The current building, Sheffield's fourth town hall, is located on Pinstone Street. It was designed by the London-based architect E. W. Mountford and constructed over a seven year period from 1890 to 1897, opening on 21 May 1897. An extension designed by F. E. P. Edwards was completed in 1923


****
The Peace Gardens is an award winning public space situated along Pinstone Street, near the Winter Garden and within walking distance of the Millennium Galleries.
The Peace Gardens contain the Goodwin Fountain, which has 89 individual jets of water. The fountain is dedicated to Sir Stuart Goodwin the founder of an important Sheffield steel and toolmaking firm.
57,000 litres of water are pumped through its water features. The system employs a water re-circulation system and is kept clean using a brine solution rather than chemicals.
They have eight large water features which make up the Holberry Cascades. The Cascades are dedicated to the leader of the Sheffield Chartist Movement and are located on either side of the four entrances to the main area of the Peace Gardens.

 The Hole in the Road

'The Hole in the Road' became part of Sheffield folklore from its construction in 1967 to its demolition in 1994. Its 27 year history saw it as memorable facet of the city for a variety of reasons that merged together in a loose fashion. As a 'residual jungle', the inclusion of a large and solitary fish tank was part of the allure of the underground structure. This seemingly out-of-time, disjointed and somewhat paltry example of aquatic exhibition then intersected with another latter-day 'menagerie' - the strutting and claiming territory of the 1970s and 1980s youth and music movements.

World Student Game, In 1991, Sheffield hosted the Universiade, otherwise known as the World Student Games. The Universiade (the word is made up of University and Olympiad) is a sporting event for students in higher education.
New venues were built to stage the Games - the main site was the Don Valley Stadium (a multi-purpose 25,000 seater stadium). The Ponds Forge Swimming Pool and the Sheffield Arena (with 10,000 seats and exhibition centre) were also built. The Lyceum Theatre was renovated as part of the cultural element of the bid.
Over 3,000 athletes from over 100 nations took part in the Games which ran from 14 - 25 July 1991.

Sheffield Steel

During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population during the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1893, officially becoming the City of Sheffield. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in traditional local industries during the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area.
The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment in Sheffield along with other British cities. Sheffield's gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £9.2 billion in 2007. The economy has experienced steady growth averaging around 5% annually, greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber.

Warp Record

Warp, commonly referred to as Warp Records, is a pioneering independent British record label, founded in Sheffield in 1989, notable for discovering some of the more enduring artists in electronic music.

The Crucible Theatre is a theatre built in 1971 and located in the city centre of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. As well as theatrical performances, it is home to the most important event in professional snooker, the World Snooker Championship.


****
Tinsley Cooling Tower
The viaduct is one of Sheffield's most prominent landmarks, and was once made all the more so by the adjacent pair of cooling towers that were left standing for safety reasons after the demolition of the Blackburn Meadows Power Station. The cooling towers were a major point of contention over the years and were once saved from destruction only after being chosen as a nesting site by a rare bird.More recently, plans were made to turn them into a piece of public art.Other plans for the towers included concert halls, skate parks and a theme park.
