I am an avid lover of all things film-related, so I had a lot of fun this week. The video essay reminded me greatly of my Introduction to Cinema Studies class I took last semester. Excellent throwback. Moving into the assignments allowed me to make some hilarious pieces. I was able to mashup Ghostbusters and Gravity to make a serious piece into a funny one. I also placed two pieces with similar tone together (in this case Mulan and The Sound of Silence). Playing around with slow motion allowed me to make a hilarious clip even more ridiculous while also highlighting the mechanics of the motion and sound. And finally I was able to condense a movie into its essential parts as a fun exercise in spoiling a film. Overall this was a very enjoyable week, and I look forward to working with more video-related projects next week.
My daily creates are below. The first is a fun bit of site exploration, and the second is a nice exercise in storytelling within the constraints of twitter.
