Final Project

  My final project turned out differently than originally planned. I knew the video of my grandpa explaining his time in the war existed but was surprised to find out how much background noise was in the video so that required some shifting on my part. This project turned into a video essay and documentary about my grandpa’s time in the service, with commentary from my Grandpa’s video, my dad…

DTC 491 Final

So, for my final project, I decided to do a recipe video with my friend because I’ve never done a recipe video before and I wanted to try something new and play around and see what happens. I will admit that I didn’t give myself enough time to do the best that I could, but overall, I had a lot of fun and learned a lot about making a recipe…

Mitchell Torres Final

I opted to do a job profile for my final project. I wanted to capture a different side of the Vancouver Police Department, not just a patrol officer, or a police chief but rather someone who doesn’t fit into that view of traditional police work. I ended up interviewing two subjects, the department’s Public Information Coordinator, Kim Kapp, and one of the Traffic Sergeants, Therese Kubala. While Kapp had a…

Blog Post: Hypercinema

The work I chose to view was Bear71. When I first loaded up the site, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, what I got an incredibly exciting narrative about a bear. I enjoyed having the audio tell me the story while I followed the bear and watch its journey through the story. While the bear was following instincts, having its story told through multimedia, such as clicking on different…

Final Project Final draft

  This is a video I made about my son James. Recently me and my wife had discovered that he was diagnosed with autism and I wanted to make a video about him and the strange ways he acts. I got my 5 year old brother-in-law to narrate and play the voice of James since he can’t talk yet. It was fun and difficult working with a five year old…

Final Project Artist’s Statement

My final project was planned over about a month. The planning included times, crew, and gear setup. I originally planned on only planned on recording one person, however, we ended up having extra people that night, so I changed my plans to include both vehicles which I think added a lot to the project as a whole. The goal of this project was to emulate the ideas of Schwaa Films,…

Final Project: The Madness

  For my final project I decided to make another video essay. The reason I decided to do this is, while indeed I do enjoy and am very proud of my video essay assignment, I felt as though that the short length video essay disallowed me to make something that had something more meaningful or personal to say. So, I decided to make a longer one focused on something that…

Hypercinema Blog Post

I chose Bear 71. I found that it felt like playing a game because I was able to move around the world and click on things to watch videos or view information. However it also felt like a video or movie because the narrator continued speaking no matter what I did. In some ways, that made exploration hard because I was focusing on the narrator and wasn’t able to read…

Planetside 2 Player Interview – 491 Final

During my time at Washington State University, I’ve taken a few classes regarding the composition and narrative of cinema. Most recently is Digital Cinema where the modern technologies of the time can impact and shape the cinematic experience of watching a video no matter what it may be. This cultivated interest in cinema fostered well with a hobby of mine within one of my favorite video games, Planetside 2. The game…

#10: Hypercinema

For the sake of this post, I checked out two different examples of hypercinema. Both very different from one another in a multitude of ways regarding how they tell their narratives and how to use cinema language. The first example I looked at was Bear 71. Bear 71 is a mix of audio narration, video, and an interactive map to create a truly unique experience and form of storytelling about…

Final Project: Future Reflections

My final project went through multiple different concepts and versions until I settled upon this particular edit and idea. First, I wanted to do a video essay on the importance and craft of Makeup Special Effects but I quickly realized it was far too ambitious and I didn’t have enough time to get the video put together in time. Then I decided to do a montage to visions of the…
