Continuity Assignment

I feel that the continuity of the frames is conveyed fairly well here.  I tried to edit it more of an early film style where the camera mostly doesn’t change until the character leaves the screen, only to appear on the other side of the next screen.  I heavily used Match on Action throughout this piece, starting from the car sequence until he turns around.  What really helped was the…

Time Frame

So, here are the three gifs I have picked out. So, this gif comes from a manga called, “One Punch Man” that’s really popular right now. Random fun fact: The artist who drew worked as an animator for a few years, and fans of the manga put together panels and found that they flow together like a whole sequence. I feel this gif really fits the subjective motion concept. “Subjective…

(Stipan) Making Something

For my project, I was originally going to do a 30 minute workout and trim it down to 30 seconds, however, before doing so, I re-read the instructions and saw I had to make something to completion. That is when I decided to make spaghetti instead. I made sure to take the shots from different angles. Form far distant shots away of the sink as I poured water into the…

(Stipan) McCloud’s Time Frame Post

Throughout the comic (Understanding Comics), Scott McCloud describes the “infinitely weird” time frame within comics. This is due to how the usage of words in a frame can change the impact of the frame. “From a lifetime of conversations, we can be sure that a “pause” panel like this lasts for no more than several seconds.”(pg. 100) This meaning that whenever a panel is just a scene with no dialogue,…

Favorite Movie Framing

I chose Cameron Crowe’s 2001 Golden Globe winner Almost Famous for this project. In this scene the main character William Miller (an aspiring rock journalist for Cream magazine) doesn’t have the credentials he needs to gain back stage access so he can write his article. The bouncer tells him to “go to the top of the ramp with the other girls”, there he is introduced to Penny Lane for the…

Favorite Scene in a Film – Narrative Space

The film I chose to examine each shot of is, “Pacific Rim.” I would consider this to be a full body shot. Raleigh is testing to see who will be drift compatible with him, to be able to pilot the mecha. This is a wide angle shot. I also think this is a 3/4 over the shoulder shot with a slight high shot. Mako (girl on the right) thinks that…

What Was Cinema?

I use digital video today for some random stuff. If my cat is doing something funny, I’ll film it with my phone. Or just a week and a half ago, I went to a concert where I filmed the concert as best as I could from where I was sitting. When I first got my driver’s license, I filmed the route home from work to show my friend who I…

Kevin Billison-What Was Cinema?

Digital Video has completely changed the nature of the Motion Picture.  Fundamentally, the traditions and automatisms of film are different and separate from those of digital media.  The way I see it, classical film was a form of art, accessible only to those few artists whom had the capability to take the screen, the canvas, so to speak, and cast upon it their own masterpiece.  Now, with the rise of…

(Stipan) What Was Cinema Post 1

It is no surprise that movie making is not what it use to be. We have gone a long way from something like “Steam Boat Willy” (1928) to Monsters Inc (2001) The ways of movie making is beyond amazing. The CGI in movies are realistic. Not only that, but they way we record has evolved as well. I recently found my fathers SONY Video Recorder from the early 90s and…
