My name is Scott Hargroves. I create things out of pixels, mainly for the web, but sometimes just for kicks. Like when I built a Multitouch table in my spare time. I do other stuff too, like making short films, taking photos and sometimes sending the odd tweet.

This section shall be known as…

16 May

Its 8.00pm on Saturday 16th May 2009. Yes the same 2009 that I thought about 3 years ago when I was guaging exactly when I would finish up with the chapter of my life known as ‘Doing more, Growing More, Feeling More, Sleeping Less‘. Its strange how when you look forward in time everything seems so unobtainable and unimaginable. Yet as we live day by day these become the lego bricks building our lives and we don’t notice that the once unobtainable and unimaginable are slowly becoming part of ourselves. I guess it really is only in times when we step back and reflect that we realise the changes that happen while in the process of building our way to the current day. Which is now. Saturday 16th May 2009.

Most of my sparse audience will know that I have been working extra long and hard to get my final uni project finished in time to showcase this at the Connected Degree Show on 5th June 2009. For anyone who has missed out on what exactly I am doing this video below may explain what I have been working on.

While this has been the biggest challenge it isn’t the only thing that I have been working on. I have a couple of projects that are being wrapped up at the minute, one is for a local month event designed to promote Media, Usability and Design in the local area and is known as Humbermud.

There is still some work being done on this to tidy up bits, but they sent it live because they needed it to launch by the last event, which was on Thursday last week.

The other project is call Critit. This is where the local media Industry finds the latest talent, and Creatives from the area find the freshest jobs. We launched a very early version of this site at the end of last year and have been working on version 2 ever since. I can’t really go into too much detail or even show you any screenshots of what we have but I can say that its looking really nice and we have added a lot of functionality to it over the first release. So I am very excited about that and will let you know when it goes live.

I actually enjoy being busy. This may sound a little strange to some people, but I really don’t like the feeling of not having a goal. Even if that goal is to just catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while, it is still a goal. As I move into the next section of my life, which shall be known as ‘Cram as much music into the summer as you can humanely do, then fly right around the world at christmas‘ I look forward to seeing what these lego bricks can build.

To follow on from my last post I thought I would make a little video to give people a visual idea of exactly what I am doing. This is in the early stage of calibration but works fairly effectively. Enjoy.

UPDATE: Around the world route now in HD

18 Mar

This is an update to the last post. Instead of the image I badly made there is now a sexy video to illustrate the route, watch here, or watch in glorious HD on Vimeo

Venture Out

13 Aug

I made this little action package montage back in my college days. Filmed in 3 countries (England, Scotland & Wales) over two weeks.

This is what my weekends used to be spent doing. Working 12 hour days flying off rock formations into white water. Having been out of the scene for a while I think I have lost some of the fearlessness I used to have while doing this.

Sorry about the poor quality of the video but my college wouldn’t lend me the decent equipment to do this project (too much risk apparently).

Docuvision

07 Aug

There is almost nothing I love more than sitting back and being totally blown away by a film. Even more so when the film is a real life account of something incredible.

Through the power of the internet two documentaries have come to my attention recently that I have to watch. They both look amazing but I am growing impatient and need to watch them.

Do not tell me it has to be this way!

Back from Glastonbury now all sun kissed and tired. Thought I would post this video which was the highlight of the weekend really. After watching this follow the link below and watch his set, even if you don’t like Hip Hop or even if you just don’t like Jay Z. This was amazing.

31 May

My second YouTube dumping recently. Im allowed though because of how amazing this experience was for me.

We all managed to plow through the 30cm of thick sticky mud in the Jazz World Field to make it over to see them. The rain had stopped in a almost ‘on purpose’ kind of way. We found an excellent position in front on the sound tower. Right in the middle of the stage. Then this happened. For me the reason why Glastonbury is so amazing. My defining moment from last year.

Im not really one to go posting YouTube videos (mainly because I don’t spend a great deal of time on there) but this one is worth sharing.

I love Tom Waits music and urge ya’ll to check him out, if you haven’t already. Enjoy.

Bitten by Duncan Laing

15 Apr

Okay so this is basically just a link dump for Dunc’s newest short film entitled ‘Bitten’. The film was shot over a couple of days and edited over a week. It was also shot in super sexy HD and it has to be viewed at such a quality. Due to this need he has uplaoded it to Vimeo so he can get feedback from it before the final version is premiered. So here is the link for you all to see it.

If you want to comment but don’t want to join Vimeo you can do so here. All comments here will be forwarded directly too him.

EDIT: He is currently being featured on Vimeos HD Channel. Well done Dunc.
