The Odeon Journey project is up and running well now, and the project has just added the first of a series of video ‘memories’ to the site. Lots more of these have been filmed and are in the edit suite so will be added very soon…

In the meantime, see the first one here >> (featuring a little bit of Clivey!!)

Want to know something really spooky!!??

Last year (on this very day!) I posted the following about my new obsession with anemometers. I’ve not really spotted any others since and then, lo and behold (whilst walking to my car following a cuppa with a mate today), I spotted the following in the garden in a house in St Albans…

Not only is it a fab anemometer (attached to other weather monitoring equipment by the look of it?), but also a wonderful copper windvane (satisfying another love of mine, ie anything made from copper pipe and ball cocks!).

And I promise the coincidence in dates is exactly that – really, really strange!

I’ve recently been commissioned to produce all the design and creative aspects of a new community project in my area. . .

Called Odeon Journey‘, the project revolves around recording the sights, sounds and memories of the old Odeon Cinema in my home town of St Albans, a fantastic art deco style building that has been lying derelict for many years now.

The cinema building has finally now been bought by the same individuals behind the restored (and highly successful) Rex Cinema, and this project is designed to bridge the gap between the two eras of the building’s existence. Following massive restoration, the cinema will be relaunched as ‘The Odyssey‘, sometime in the next couple of years – full details on the restoration attempts can be see on their website here >>

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and in partnership with lots of local St Albans organisations, my part of the project has been concerned with coming up with a look / feel for the project including a logo, supporting literature, banners and (most importantly) a website that will act as a repository for people’s memories of the old building.

The project has just been officially launched, and here is a selection of the things we have produced so far. Visit the website to keep abreast of the project as it progresses.

Created using the fantastic Concrete 5 CMS system , I’m really pleased with the overall way the site is shaping up so far, and hopefully lots more content (including audio, video and picture memories) will get added in the very near future. . .
