Hybrid Space – Glitch

For this assignment I wanted to experiment with the glitch effects that we saw during class. In order to contrast the glitches, I wanted to film a little bit of nature and things you would see in a garden. I thought those two topics would go nicely together as a hybrid of completely different spaces (digital with the natural world). Also, there was a LOT of trial and error with…

Hybrid

I took shots on campus when the sky was mostly a uniform color. I used the ultra key effect to knock out the blue background and added the Hurricane Michael footage. I wanted to juxtapose a happy layer with a tragic one to showcase how a beautiful location can be destroyed in a natural disaster. I added the “Happy G0 Lucky Me” track to emphasize how blissfully ignorant we can all be…

Hybrid Space – Campus Walk

For my hybrid space assignment, I wanted to create an interpretation of a walk through the WSUV campus. I filmed on a day when no clouds were in the sky. Ultimately, this allowed me to use the ultra key effect in Premiere to use the blue sky as a “blue screen.” The original idea was to capture certain visuals of walking from a parking lot, through the heart of campus…

Taylor Jones – Hybrid Space

  For this video, I found around 4 of my videos where I shot my feet hanging over a landscape and layered them all on top of each other with different layer blending modes. In the second half of the video, I use a mirror effect on some of the shots. I then tried for a while to figure out how to make a glitch effect by converting the file…

Hybrid Spaces

In Lev Manovich’s article, What is Digital Cinema?,  he discusses digital manipulation, what cinema was, and how digital cinema has changed cinema identity. He states that “cinema is the art of the index”, our effort to make art and create something new and different from something natural (2). With the use of digital editing tools cinema’s indexicality identity changes with the way it is manipulated, some films can even be…

Hybrid Cinema – Light is Waiting

October 9, 2018

In Light is Waiting by Michael Robinson, the viewer is “drawn in” to the visuals of the work more so than the “story” itself. What can be seen in the video is the guts and gore of a destroyed TV and all the unusual, distorted content of the TV’s (fake) output. However, the concept and editing of the video creates an unusual yet familiar feeling of nostalgia as various moving images…

Hybrid Spaces – Star Wars Wars

For this week’s post, I decided to cover the video Star Wars Wars as I find it an interesting example of hybrid space. Normally when we watch Star Wars, or any movies that have sequels, we usually watch it one at a time or maybe in sequential order according to the story’s events. However, these people decided to overlap each film onto each other and play them all at once!…

Hybrid Spaces

As Manovich states in What is Digital Cinema, “cinema was understood, from its birth, as the art of motion, the art that finally succeed in creating a convincing illusion of dynamic reality.” However, in today’s digital age, there are a plethora of tools at our disposal to create cinema that is no longer bound to the illusion of dynamic reality. As filmmakers today, we can essentially change any piece of…

Taylor Jones – Hybrid Spaces Blog Post

October 9, 2018

  “I want to present the computer screen as a space of endless possibilities” – Lev Manovich, What is Digital Cinema   In What is Digital Cinema, Lev Manovich said “Digital media redefines the very identity of cinema” (Manovich, 1). Although filmmaking is still at its core about presenting moving visual imagery, improved technology has made things possible that were never before. People used to see film as a truth to…

Hybrid Cinema

October 8, 2018

The digital aesthetics of play damage was abstract and avant-garde. I noticed that each page was experimental and layered images with graphics in a frantic fashion. The spaces that are depicted in these videos and hybrid spaces seem to all be experimental. The Light is Waiting video took something most Americans are familiar with, Full House, and remixed the audio and imagery to depict a completely different message. The “indexicality”…
