Heads is a new and exciting project for creating interactive films aimed at the web and smart phones. It is comprised of several tools:
- The first is a browser based editor to allow one to create interactive content, this is the part which is in closed beta here.
- A smart phone client will be available toward the end of the year. This will act as a distribution point for films as well as a test environment to try out your creations on actual devices. iOS and Android are scheduled first, with Blackberry and Palm following.
- A web client will also be available, check the news section for updates on this.
This project has been enabled by Screen South and the RIFE lottery funding programme, Screen South and their Digital Inventions project have been invaluable in making it possible.
The organisation of this portal is very simple, below you can either start a new project or start the editor to load one you’ve already created. There will be a Jira instance available shortly for issue and feature request tracking. At the links below you will find a ‘read me’ to get you started, documentation, release notes for the current version and Terms of Service – more of a disclaimer at this stage!
The Heads team can be contacted at heads-team (at) nellyvision.com and we’d love to hear any feedback you have.
Please read the short “Read me first!” page in the documentation before trying out the editor, and note this is a private closed beta – if you are here it’s by invitation.
Use of the editor implies acceptance of our terms of service which can be found linked below.
