Final – Bait

For his project I wanted to do something different than originally planned. I wanted to use continuity as the main point to focus on. The premise of the story is that there is a man on campus that is following students. Through the use of continuity I played with the two different perspectives of both individuals. The desired speed of each shot progressively was amplified and the music was cut…

Blog Post #10 – Hyper Cinema

I watched Uda Atsuko’s Mix-up work and I thought it was interesting how the sound helps the narrative of the pieces. I also liked how the user can control the speed of the narrative by how quickly they hover over the different pieces. I also watched Atsuko’s work of Shanghai Diary and loved how the work would show different angles and sides of the story by where in the piece…

Blog Post #9 – Cinema Writing

Watching the Ted Talk videos, I think the fascinating thing about video essays is that it incorporates all three expressions (audio, visual, and text) to talk about a specific subject. The audience will now get to see, hear, and read the information given in the video. I remember in high school, we would always get to watch video essays or video infographics because it was another an effective way to…

Interactive Media Blog

I watched the early 2000’s flash work by Uda Atsuko. There are different elements to this narrative, much relating to electronic literature in the sense of hovering over to find new information and choose your own path. Flash is dying off in the next year and will be replaced with other tools like html and css that afford the same possibilities. We discussed in class how Atsuko does not provide…

Video Essay Blog

    For my final project, I am doing a documentary on my grandpa’s life and his experience during World War II. My grandpa died when I was 3 years old so I do not have any memory of him besides pictures and videos. On my Grandpa’s 80th birthday in 1995, he took a few minutes to tell his life story. I was able to access that video so I…

SKAM Blog

The SKAM series is unique in the sense that it’s unlike many things out there, despite what people think. It specifically said that the audience had trouble deciphering what exactly was happening, and whether or not it was even a show.  There are many secrets throughout the series, which adds to the spice and it was creative for the creators to have the audience engagement with the different social media…

Final Project Final Cut with Artist Statement

For my final project, I wanted to explore a topic that I love: environmentalism. When I was in my environmental science class this semester, my professor, Dr. Berger, challenged us to spend 12 hours without making any unnatural emissions. Many people in my class thought this would be a tough challenge. I thought it would be a fun one. However, soon after I began planning it, I realized how difficult…

Hyper Cinema

I think there is a distinct difference between a game and an interactive narrative. Bear71 was the later. There was a story to be told that had a beginning and an ending but had things to see along the way. No matter what you clicked on and what you viewed the ending would not change but it gave a glimpse into the life of bear 71. Through the use of…
