Loops

What I like about this gif loop is that it can go on forever. Alternatively, the viewer can decide when it ends, and when to move on to the next thing. The pauses in between the actions also makes it feel like a long time is passing in between actions. There’s a lot of tension that lengthens out the perceived time. This one also plays with time in the sense…

Montage Video Project

I decided to do a metric montage with a bit of humor. Here, all ten video shots are no more than three seconds in length and the subject matter shows an activity over time. The content of the montage and juxtaposed imagery are based on the story of a fictional character who wants to paint, but clearly doesn’t know how to, and so decides to teach himself how to create…

Loops!

I like the potential for the poetic and surreal imagery in loops. The way you can leverage optical illusions to portray ideas that may be difficult or impossible to do with real figures. They can also enforce the feeling of endlessness or repetition, just by the nature of something looping infinitely. They alter the perception of time- whether it condenses it or expands it, letting a moment linger rather than…

Temporal Montage

For my montage assignment, I went for a blend of Metric and Rhythmic. It is Metric because every shot is exactly 3 seconds, and rhythmic because Aimee is the center piece, while the outside changes around her. If you notice, it starts with dry grassy fields, and slowly turns to green hills and the river. This was taken from our drive from Pullman to Vancouver.

Montage

For this assignment, I decided to use the narrative that I tend to run into everyday; choosing what to wear. Being on time is not my strong suit, and I usually deviate from the use of color in my wardrobe choices, so it felt natural to incorporate that into the video.

Temporal Montage

For my montage assignment I created a metric montage of myself making coffee in the morning. Each shot is 1 second, 9 frames long. I tried to use a variety of shots and use movement to carry the viewer through the montage.

Temporal Montage

My Poetic Montage is an abstract view of fall. I wanted to spend time focusing on shots I felt represented the changes in the seasons. Each clip is around 2 seconds long and shows the changes from summer to fall.

Loops & GIFs

Above: Artist/Director/Photographer Mike Mellia pours coffee into his mug. This narrates the passage of time as he prepares his morning ‘Cup of Joe.’ One could us this in a scene involving morning rituals, or possibly the passage of time as one gets ready for the day. Above: Effie from Skins (UK) smokes a cigarette with an angsty look on her face. This GIF narrates her conversation with another character on…

Temporal Montage Assignment

  Here is my temporal montage short film. It is probably slightly ambitious for what the assignment called for, but I really wanted to try my idea out. This is a short story of a soldier in a tense situation. I was greatly inspired by the Tree of Life video we watched in class. I attempted at incorporating the same editing style, however my editing is not nearly as abstract. Brendan…

Montage

I tried to go with a well paced, rhythmic montage. I considered making all of the clips the same length, but I think taking extra time in some of the shots adds to the character and pace of getting ready in the morning (at least in my case).

Loops in Digital Cinema

Loops in digital cinema, or gifs, are probably most common to us through social media and communication through text messages. However, gifs, or simply looped video, can be much more than that. Some gifs can take on a more “artistic,” thought out, approach instead of the usual gag, or meme, to relate to that day’s difficulties. One such example is the gif above, which displays the skyline of San Francisco…

Loops

In this GIF we see the character endlessly removing his sunglasses. Loops can be interpreted by many ways. In this case it’s a bit unsettling. In this loop the subject appears to be in an ocean being overtaken by waves. Is it a loop? Or is it real time? The distortion can present the viewer with an impossible situation, or a representation of time. https://youtu.be/aKLBD6f0shY In this loop we see…

Temporal Montage project

For this montage project, I created a passage of time video to show time passing as I am kayak fishing. What would normally take hours to cross the lake I attempted to show the passage of time by editing a series of shot of me pedaling the kayak.

Loops

In terms of time, gifs/loops such as this are suspenseful to say the least. When watching this gif, even though it’s a loop, there are many questions that can be asked as we think in terms of our own reality. Even though we know there’s no possible way for us to walk through these doorways forever, it seems as though we are making no progress towards the light. While the…

Temporal Montage

  This is my temporal montage that shows me getting ready for a movie night. My montage is a metric montage as each shot is just 3 seconds long. This was my first time making a montage and I struggled to show the passage of time without using continuous shots. I made every shot the same length no matter what was happening because I did not want to show exactly…

This First loop is of a Pancake machine, and besides it being an excellent loop, it does show the passage of time by having new pancakes come in, get flipped, then exit frame. giving this idea that they are being finished off screen. This machine in the process to make frozen pancakes [l] from perfectloops The second loop I picked is of wind blowing in a field. This gif shows…

Loops

Boardwalk: This is an example of using motion minimally to add some depth to an image instead calling attention to itself. This would be a great establishing shot for a scene. It is a very still moment, but the lights indicate that it isn’t just a photograph. It feels timeless. You could potentially hold on this moment for a long time to offer up a sense of serenity. Driver: This is…

Week 5 Blog: Loops

What better place to find gifs than from movies and tv shows? This gif is from Game of Thrones. Dany slightly shakes her head before the video loops again, making it seem as if she’s stuck in a constant state of sadly shaking her head. It’s as if time is stuck in this one pattern; this makes time seem to stretch and really gets across her emotion, since viewers get sucked into…

Montage

For this project I decided to create a short montage of me playing an album on my record player. I chose to do this because it is something I do often, so it already has a bit of a rythm in my mind whenever I get ready to play music on vinyl. I also have a great interest in music and thought that this would be an interesting way to…

Temporal Montage

I’m still not entirely sure if I’m doing this project correctly, but my intent was to make a metric montage. The theme of the video was around procrastinating on written assignments, something that I’ve been a victim to countless times throughout my education. Each clip is around 4 seconds and I was trying to evoke the tension that most students feel when they procrastinate.
