Today was my final day at BBC Wales after handing in my notice last month. Though I still have absolutely no regrets, I have actually been enjoying more creative freedom over the last few weeks. If the previous two years had been similar, I may not have left…
Anyway, I thought I’d show and tell some of the things I’ve made. You can find all these in the SJA Fun and Games section.
The Storyteller is a paper ‘fortune teller‘ game. I had a lot of fun coming up with the little stories, as well as designing the game itself. I also designed a stationary sheet that kids can use to write letters.
But my piece de resistance was a six-page PDF download with instructions and assets for kids to make their own attic model.
This ended up taking ages, so I owe thanks to the website’s producer for pushing the deadline back two days in a row so I could do a nice job. I wanted to arrange the instructions like a comic book and inject a sense of fun. There are still bits I would like to tweak, but in the end it simply had to be finished and go live!
Bonus: Cool robots!
Finally, although I had nothing to do whatsoever in the creation of these chaps, I just had to post them here. Who doesn’t love awesome robots?
You can see these in the next Sarah Jane episode, ‘The Empty Planet‘ – it’s a good solid piece of kiddie SF. And if you haven’t seen ‘The Death of the Doctor‘, that’s certainly worth watching if you’re a Who fan.
