Montage Assignment

This is my montage my assignment.  I kept it at exactly 60 seconds, and I added the audio that I recorded myself because the piano without any sound would look really weird.  Fun fact: I actually recorded him performing the same piece in entirety about five times.

Time Assignment

For the first Loop I wanted to play with time a little bit and show one character moving through time in a different way to everyone else. In my second loop I wanted to present the idea of an infinitely revolving Dreidel.  I felt that it would be a fun loop to make. You would not believe how long it took to film this.  We were shuffling those cards for…

Time Frames: 3 Looping Videos

For this assignment, I did struggle to come up with ideas on how to create the perfect loop; however, these ideas just came to me as I was just going on throughout my day. While I was trying to set up my camera, my dog was constantly running up and down the stairs because she thought she would hear something or someone outside of the house. This allowed me some time…

(Stipan) Cinema in the Digital Age/ Run Lola Run Post

Last week in our Cinema class, we watched a movie called “Run Lola Run” and it was nothing like I’ve ever seen before. The movie was interesting with showing many jumps between real life to cartoon shots. The movie had a lot of cinema and narrative techniques throughout the movie.   A few cinema techniques it did was the “Long Shot” take, which was used with Lola ran. The camera would be on the side of her…

Time and Space

This gif if particularly interesting in that it loops perfectly. Animation allows for a lot of wiggle room with perfect looping as it’s a medium that can be manipulated by the animator easily. Much like in the reading, the panel extends past what we can see. Though there is a border, we can tell it extends because the figures move beyond it.   This gif, in a way, shows the…

Cinematic Gifs and “Time Frames”

Cinematic gifs are like silent panels in comic books. It isn’t always obvious how much time passes in these images but they have a sense of timelessness. In “Time Frames” Scott McCloud states that in comic books “such images can set the mood of a sense of place for whole scenes through these lingering timeless presence.” The gifs that I found express scenes that are calm and peaceful and seem…

Continuity: Decorating a Halloween Table

Since the holiday season is right around the corner and my parents have been decorating the house for fall and Halloween (which is too early in my opinion, but okay), I wanted to focus on a video of one part of the house being decorated to apply the lessons that we have learned in class so far. With the great patience of my mother having to keep redecorating the table,…

Cinemagraphs explored.

I like this cinemagraph because it does a great job of conveying movement and time that happens outside of our field of vision. We can only look and focus on one thing at a time, but there is a lot of other stuff happening beyond what we see.   This cinemagraph utilizes the clock gears as a great way to show the passage of time.   This one also portrays…
