The Daily Create, tdc1266, asks us to help @DrGarcia celebrate her birthday and visualize her future. If you’ve seen GNA’s original photo with her Goonies coin, and if you understand the “Be Seeing You” reference from The Prisoner, you can see where I’m going with this one. And The Festival No 6: A Bespoke Banquet of Music, Arts and Culture event held each year in Portmeirion, UK, might be of interest to GNA.
I’ve also posted a static version of this to Flickr, minus the be-seeing-you fingers.
With the wrapping up of the recent #noir106 incarnation of #ds106 Digital Storytelling at University of Mary Washington, attention turns this summer to an open online version of the course, #prisoner106.
While participatiion in #ds106 open online sessions is always at the whim of external time pressures, the summer months always provide for a bit more opportunity to dig in and play. In the past, I’ve enjoyed playing along with Magic Camp McGuffin in 2012, The Twilight Zone based #ds106zone in 2013, and I’m looking forward to devoting some time over the next couple of months to further hone some skills while re-aquainting myself with a few different takes on The Prisoner (the classic 17-episode 1968 British series starring Patrick McGoohan as 6, and the more recent 6-episode 2009 AMC remake starring Jim Caviezel as 6 and Ian McKellen as 2).
To accompany an exploration of The Villages (from 1968 and from 2009), there is also a nice potential complement in the form of Wayward Pines, a new suspense thriller from M. Night Shyamalan on Fox. I’ve just posted about it to provide an accompanying introduction, “Another Prisoner, Welcome to Wayward Pines.” With GIFs!!
I’ll be GIFfing you!
