http://dtc-wsuv.org/cmartinelli18/hypercinema/   I honestly do not like the way it turned out. It is a cool idea, but it didn’t seem to click with me.

Hypercinema – Seances

When looking at Seances, by Guy Maddin, I was intrigued by just how experimental it is. I saw the distorted images and the ability to click through and interact with the media (at the beginning) as something that drew me in. The muted and dark tones created what look like a tortured artist’s work. By only allowing interaction when the artist wants it, he made it so that one stays…

Networked Cinema

The idea of an interactive networked series that allows the general public is one that allows the viewer to grow more attached to the show as a whole. When people can connect with something in such a streamlined manner, they often grow to enjoy it. I, for one, find it interesting, but as a visual abstract artist, I do not feel the need to connect to things in an emotional…

Hypercinema

http://dtc-wsuv.org/breardon18/hypervideo/index.html The above link is my Hypercinema assignment. It is a fairly short, and simple, experiment with choices and navigation in an environment. In games, you can explore a virtual world comprised of 3D assets. I wanted to explore the idea of a “point-and-click” adventure, much like a video game, where you explore a space on a website, rather then an application. As long as you have good bandwidth the…

HyperCinema

For this assignment I decided to mess around with the YouTube “card” system. I linked a different shot at the one second mark in each video, so it’s a streamlined way to click through a series of song lyrics that I wrote on pieces of paper and “hid” in my backyard. The lyrics are from the song “Sick Child” by Siouxsie and The Banshees.

HyperCinema

http://dtc-wsuv.org/amurray16/video-audio-javascript/ I chose Dreaming Methods (and unfortunately I was not able to locate the author’s name.) to analyze hyper-cinema. This interactive narrative was a compelling experience. From the very beginning, the viewer can follow the story with many visual clues. They use cinema language within this narrative by considering lighting, sound, and images. The beginning starts within a confusing, dark and centered image. The music sets the stage for an…

HyperCinema

http://dtc-wsuv.org/afields17/hypercinema/ For this project I wanted to experiment with the use of sound in a web environment. Basically I wanted the user to be able to choose which snippet of music they would listen to based on which album they chose in the homepage. I forgot to use the correct sound file so the website currently takes longer to load than I would like, but I will fix this later.

HyperCinema — Dropoff

For my HyperCinema project, I decided to have fun with a series of short video stories with audio. Each panel allows the viewer to progress to the next segment of the story. The concept behind the storyline is the protagonist meets a shady character late at night in an abandoned location to pick up something mysterious. What that “something” is remains to be seen. I wanted to pique the viewer’s…

Video Essay Project

In the video essay project, I chose my favorite video game. Fallout 4. This is the 5th installment of the Fallout series and I believe it is the best one to date. In this game you play as the sole survivor of the post-apocalyptic world of Boston Massachusetts and the area known as the Commonwealth. It blends a 50’s style retro world with the modern sci fi of laser weapons,…

Hyper cinema Project

For this project I stayed with my theme of fishing. I had some footage of a fly fishing trip I took this summer in the Cascades near Mt St. Helens. I used my Iphone for the camera. I am still impressed with the ability of the Iphone to capture good video. I also had my regular water proof GoPro Chinese made knockoff camera to capture the fish in to pools…

Taylor Jones – Hyper Cinema

http://dtc-wsuv.org/tjones16/hypercinema For my hyper cinema project, I used a narrative video I had filmed instead of loops. I chopped it up into chapters and made it so that a user will experience a different “read” through each time, even though it might end in the same place. Exporting out the video footage at a max width of 400px made the quality just terrible, but it looks cool with glitching, I…

HyperCinema Assignment

http://dtc-wsuv.org/klindsey17/hyperCinema/ I decided to be a bit more elaborate with this assignment than the other ones because I missed messing around with JavaScript (no joke). So, I played around with some extra JavaScript and narration to create an intro. The way the videos play is based off of the second template. I wanted to loosely emulate surveillance cameras which is why the loops are edited the way that they are….

HyperCinema Video

http://dtc-wsuv.org/skobza17/hypercinema/index.html This project is purposefully very simple because I doubted whether I would be able to do anything super complicated. I’ve always loved my grandpa’s backyard pond, so I wanted to create a simple little interactive way to explore various features of it.

Hypercinema Project

http://dtc-wsuv.org/jjackson18/hypervideo/ For this project, I went to the beach with the intention of doing some shots of my son and I surfing, unfortunately, the water was a little too cold for a guy pushing 40. Maybe I should get a thicker wetsuit? Anyway, I thought instead that my son and I would use the sand castle toys and kite to have some fun with this project. I used this assignment to…

HyperCinema: “Through Windows”

http://dtc-wsuv.org/hbrooks17/through-windows/ For my hyper cinema assignment, I wanted to capture some brief nature shots similar to those we’ve seen from Terence Malick this semester. I was inspired to film on campus between the library and VMMC because of the miniature window panes next to the stairs in VMMC. As I found myself walking from one class to another, I noticed how the image of a tree was distorted by the…

SKAM

Read the article about SKAM and then skim around the Facebook video series. What are your thoughts about a networked “tv” series or “webisode” with social media interaction with the audience? What ideas do you have for such a networked interactive series? The idea of SKAM is captivating and something uniquely new to me. Until this blog post, I hadn’t known it existed. I think that the concept of integrating…

HyperCinema – The Kitchen

http://dtc-wsuv.org/jyoes17/hypercinema/ I had fun with this, although I made it a little more complicated than it needed to be. I wanted to the videos to update on the page through Javascript instead of hyperlinking to other pages so I spent a fair amount of time developing that functionality. My assignment incorporates elements of the Hybrid Space project because I really liked it’s surreal nature.

Cinema-Writing/blog

To create a successful essay, some things need to be kept in mind such as essays need to be short, they need to be interesting, and they should be truthful. Essays are a series of thoughts. The use of language with an image can be useful to guide us through the narrative, create an emotional moment or even to inform us about what’s happening within the scene; however, there are…

Hybrid Spaces-blog

  After reading Lev Manovich’s “What is Digital Cinema,” it was easy to recognize how hybrid cinema is used often in today’s production industry. Manovich details in our reading, “Special effects, which involved human intervention into the machine-recorded footage and which were therefore delegated to cinema’s periphery throughout its history, become the norm of digital filmmaking” (9). In the Light is Waiting, it is recognizable in the use of special…

Video Essay

Sorry its late! For my video essay I created a review/overview of one of my favorite guitar pedals, the MXR Carbon Copy Delay. I shot this using a combination of iPhone footage and shots from my Sony.
