Blog #3 – Cinema in the Digital Age & Run Lola Run

The movie, Run Lola Run, directed by Tom Tykwer, uses a nonlinear type of editing style in order to help convey each scenario that could possibly happen to Lola as she tries to secure $10,000 in order to save her boyfriend’s life from the mob that he is working for. Rather than many movies that follow one timeline to point A to point B, this movie focuses on an intro,…

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…

30 Second Continuity Video

For this assignment I wanted to explore a narrative where someone struggles through the process of writing a song. Since 30 seconds is not enough time to accurately show how long and difficult of a process song writing is I took a few creative framing liberties. long shots and medium shots are very obvious as he enters the coffee shop. Then there is a match on action when he tosses…

(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…

Screenshots/Framing – Favorite Movie Scene

Although it’s not exactly my favorite movie, I do enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean series and knew that I would be able to find something on YouTube with it. I actually have more than one favorite movie and quite a few of them are actually foreign films and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to find a scene cut from one of them on YouTube. Regardless, this…

Framing – As Seen in Film

The Seven Samurai makes excellent use of framing in the final battle scene of the film.  But what I’m going to talk about specifically is the build up to that battle.  In the introductory scene, where we see the multiple different groups through various kinds of frames. The very introduction of the scene shows the ambush team from a medium shot.  This allows the viewer to see just how many…

Who Dunnit? – After a Game Night

For my 30 second “Who Dunnit” framing video I decided to film the aftermath of a game night. I used long shots, medium shots, close-ups, and extreme close-ups to show the elements of the scene. I decided not to go for the typical horror approach to this video and instead filmed the result of a fun night coming to an end.

30 second “Who Dunnit”- Inouye

This is my short video, the quality seems to vary for some reason. I use some extreme close up shots, close up shots, and medium shots although its tough to define each one when Im only shooting paper. I think that an appropriate title for the piece would be “my dog ate my homework but not this homework” and I counted my dog as the actor, so I attempted to…

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…

Narrative Spaces – Favorite Scene in a Film

I have picked Ferris Bueller’s Day off to analyze narrative spaces in a scene. This movie is about three friends who skip school to play in Chicago. The kids take a car owned by Cameron’s father without his permission. In this scene Cameron, Ferris, and Sloane are trying to reverse the mileage on Cameron’s father’s car by putting it in reverse while propping it up on a jack. This scene…

Who Dunnit? A Homecoming Story

For this who dunnit I decided to frame a typical homecoming. I used my roommates 30 pound monster of a Siamese cat as the culprit. His name is Joey and every day I come home to a mess that he has created. Some examples of his passive aggressive behaviors are books knocked off shelves, drawers in the kitchen open with the contents strewn across the floor, and every last one…

30 Second Framing “Who Dunnit?”

For this assignment I used extreme long shots, long shots, medium shots, close ups, and a extreme close up fading to long shot. When I was coming up with an idea of how to tell a story of who may have caused an event without actors I grabbed the idea that in my family everyone likes to just go and watch TV after dinner instead of cleaning up. So the…

Framing for visual evidence – John Oberg

For this assignment, I used these shots: Close up, Long Shot, Extreme Long Shot, Medium, Extreme Close up. It was interesting to note that these shots may look similar but are different due to the size of what’s being filmed (i.e. the frog, the person and the vehicle)

Who Dunnit?

For this video, the perfect “Who Dunnit?” scene for me was my dog destroying a toy.  Multiple times when I come back from work, or school there’s fluff around the room, and this presented me a good opportunity for a video.  In this video, I had originally planned to show different angles of the mess I was left with, but luckily I caught my dog in mid-action destroying her toy,…

Who Dunnit?

For this Who Dunnit scenario, I wanted to illustrate the mystery of an anonymous gift alluding to at least two different possibilities. Honestly, I was quite uninspired, and struggled to come up with a plot for this video.  The use of props such as a card without a sender and pedals leading to different locations assisted in identifying a suspect where there were no actors. However, when the pedals lead…
