Blog 10/22

After viewing “SKAM” the facebook interactive networked series, as well as, reading the article, ““SKAM,” the Radical Teen Drama That Unfolds One Post at a Time” I began to think more about the possibilities of something like this being the future of TV. After the Black Mirror interactive movie “Bandersnatch” came out on Netflix last year I began thinking more about electronic literature as a form of entertainment. The idea…

SKAM – Betsy Hanrahan

Blog: 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?

Pixel Cinema Assignment-Friday The 13th Remixed

Here is my pixel cinema assignment a remix of a few kills from Friday The 13th Part VI and VII with all kinds of kooky and colorful effects re-edited and redone to create a disco nightmare feel.

Lev Manovich and Digital Cinema

In his essay “What is Digital Cinema?” Lev Manovich notes that the majority of discussion around digital cinema has focused on the possibilities of narrative interaction. Manovich argues that this focus on narrative only addresses one aspect of cinema, which is neither unique nor essential to the medium. For Manovich the challenge presented by digital media extends beyond the issue of narrative to the very identity of cinema. With enough…

Eagle Creek Fire

The Eagle Creek fire was such an emotional experience for a lot of locals. It’s been a few year since, going back to it, I would focus on the locals in that area and how they are rebuilding. Emotion is key in anything you film, if the audience doesn’t feel anything, then you are doing something wrong. For the emotional reaction I would talk to the kids in the area,…
