Temporal Montage

I decided to go for a rhythmic montage for this assignment. While I kept pretty strong continuity between the shots, I also tried to cut as much filler between each initial shot as I could so they don’t always exactly match each action. I was happy to find in the edit that with a little audio mixing, all of the clicks and clacks of my computer came together seamlessly. I…

Metric Montage

For this assignment, I decided to create a metric montage of me cleaning my room to show both the passing of time and the healthy mindset that stems from working in a clean environment. Each of my clips are exactly 3 seconds long and show just enough of each smaller process that goes into cleaning my room, including picking up everything I have laying around, cleaning my desk, dusting, and…

Temporal Montage – Routine

For my montage I decided to go with a simple subject which is everyone’s morning and evening routine. I was heavily inspired by the metric montages that we saw in class and decided to experiment with it a bit. Also, I figured that a metric montage would fit with this particular subject since sometimes we feel constrained to our own everyday routines, much like how each shot is limited to…

Metric Montage Video

For the montage assignment, I chose to do a metric montage of me getting ready for school and going to class. Each clip is 2 seconds long and shows a simplified version of how I get ready for school. I originally wanted to take this same concept but instead include a shot of me leaving at night, but due to my schedule I wasn’t able to film the night-class shot….

Montage

What I have learned during this project was the importance of file management. In the future, I will have bins for B role and specific footage. This way I can quickly assign color labels to the shots and visually know what shots are wherein the timeline. I also realized I should change my autosave settings to save for me every minute or so. I experienced a crash of premiere this…

Taylor Jones – Montage

For my montage, every shot is 2.5 seconds long, and often has a centered subject. I tried to capture an almost poetic or abstract path to homelessness through montage. The first half of shots represent the benefits of having a home: a roof, a locked door, protection from the elements, comfort. The last half represents the reality of living outdoors on the streets: no privacy, exposed to the elements, lack…

Montage

View/Discuss Loops and Continuity Assignments Run Lola Run Observe framing  and continuity editing in this scene, how tension builds with match on action and with POV shots, and then how time expands with the cross-cutting of the roulette sequence. Above are two examples of the still “montages” of these characters’ possible futures. If you slow down the frame rate in youtube settings, you can see how it is actually continuity…
