Adrenaline Alley Progress...

Progress is being made with the Adrenaline Alley project. There have been a few changes... we will now be creating content to be integrated into the main site being produced by Webforma Studios. There will be separate flash files for each section of the park containing video and photographs.

We started collecting all the content for the site this week with sessions at the park this Tuesday and Wednesday. We've already captured some great shots of the empty park as well video/photos of professional skaters / bmxers and audio tracks for the films. ^-^ A couple more sessions are still needed but after that we should have everything we need to work with.

ctrl g and Adrenaline Alley

For ctrl g's next project we'll be working with our local skate park Adrenaline Alley

"Adrenaline Alley which opened in 2006 has hosted over 93000 visitors and has become known as the biggest, safest and best parks in the UK with a great atmosphere and welcoming attitude. They have become an award wining social enterprise. The founder, Mandy Young has picked up awards for BBC Enterprise in Sport sponsored by EMDA, Finalist - Business Women of the year 2009, Pride of Northamptonshire, Anne Frank Award, High Sherrif's Award and many more including the PAG -Volunteer group of the year 2008."

The park has a range of features including the UK's only Resi jump box, a foam pit, a bowl to Europe's first and only 14ft x 76ft resi/vert ramp. The park also houses music practice rooms as well as a recording studio and an education room that is used by schools and groups in the local area. (Click on the image above to see more)

A selection of ctrl g are going to be working together over the next couple of months to create a flash micro site which will be included in the parks brand new website. It will be a kind of tour of the park allowing users to explore all the different areas through video and photographs.

Although we have been meeting and planning together for the last couple of months today was the day when everything has come together. We have assigned roles, looked at the park and now have a strong plan in place to create the site. This is a very exciting project for us as our final product will be accessed by users all over the world.

As always I will update with the progress on here. ^-^
