Visual Novel Essay

Artist Note:   For my final project, I wanted to create an essay that was meant to educate people on what a visual novels exactly is. In short, a visual novel is a sub genre of gaming that’s popular in Japan, while the Western Audience mostly doesn’t know about these games. In the beginning of this semester whenever these games were brought up, people mostly didn’t even know what I…

“Terrible Oscars” Final Submission

Hey everyone, Out of everything we learned in this wonderful class, my two favorite subjects definitely had to be continuity and the mixing various movies together. So, for my final, I decided to combine these two and create a short story told through various terrible films. Certain clips and edits kept getting copyrighted so I had to cut them, hopefully, the continuity still holds up. My submission for my finale…

Final Project

This is my final project, it’s a behind the scenes look at a Portland Winterhawks hockey game.  I thought this topic would be interesting, because while people go to the games, you don’t really know about the people behind the scenes, such as the PA announcer, the game operations/sound guy, and the videographer.  This video, while really fun to make, and be at the games, was extremely frustrating, with the…

DTC-338 Final – Vancouver! The Public Access Documentary

Here is my final draft of my final project. I recruited my coworker, Ranger Bobby to give me his thoughts on Vancouver, the city he works and lives in. I decided that after the awkward vibe of my last job shadow, I would accentuate on the tone and give this feature a “public access” type of shoot, inclusive of cheesy music and grainy footage. I found some free sounds on…

Final Project – Childhood War Memories

My final project is supposed to be housed in a website – but it isn’t working properly.  It was working fine on my pc in Firefox, but is not working in Chrome on Macs, so I’m just adding it as a blog post.  That means that the last paragraph of this Artist’s Statement won’t make sense, but it will give you an idea of how the project was intended to…

Final Project for Digital Cinema Fall 2017

  Creative burnouts happen at the most inopportune times. It just so happens that I was experiencing one this semester, and it really took a toll on my final project for this class. I originally wanted to create a video about how difficult it is to deal with sensory input when I am reading. However, as I was planning out the project I realized that my vision could not be…

The Final Mashup

This assignment is my final piece for digital cinema. I wanted to create a mashup that demonstrated how metric montage techniques combined with video essay can be used to create a juxtaposition of images that provide visual evidence for a film thesis. The concept for this project stems from being a graduating senior myself. I’m all to familiar with the interview process, and I’ve experienced some disastrous interviews myself. I wanted…

Final Project Submission

Hi there! I really enjoyed this class, I was unsure of what to create even up until the day I filmed this so I had a bit of a tough time getting all the editing and footage together, the biggest problem was that I had a script for the story and I had to cut out a great chunk of the dialogue and see how things could fit together. The…

Final Project

This video is a promotional video for City Vineyard, a new church plant in North Portland. It involves hybrid cinema through use of text and titles, still images and video.  In this video, I included visual evidence, some montage through the use of quick transitioning of still images as well as filming an interview. I recorded the musical segment and the scenes of people talking amongst themselves without telling anyone….
