HyperCinema

I chose FilmText by Mark Amerika to analyze how hypercinema works and found it to be a truly complex experience. The way that the point-and-click feature allows for interaction between the user and the video is really unique and something that’s difficult to replicate with just normal cinema. You’re able to select any area within the flash and find new text that describes the area. I also really enjoyed how FilmText tells it’s story…

Job Profile Final Cut

I added some more visual evidence to show the online store, the kind of clothing she’s sold recently (mostly shoes), and number of followers (61k+). If you’re interested in shopping her store, you can find it online at poshmark.com or on the Poshmark app: @amyellaboutique

Blog Post – Video Essay

When it comes to video essays, I think there’s a lot of liberties and creativity an editor can make in order to get their point across. Text can be used to emphasize keywords and ideas to the audience, and clips from other films can also be utilized as visual evidence. Actually, video essays remind me a lot of power points but just simply with extra movement and sound to make…

SKAM blog post

I think the concept of social media interaction while an episode plays isn’t that much of a new idea. In some networked television shows, they’ll occasionally show fan reactions on the bottom (usually in the form of tweets). If you want yourself to get noticed on the show, then all you have to do is post in the designated hashtag. However, with the case of SKAM, they seem to extend…

Job Profile Rough Cut

I still want to collect more B-roll and I might change the focus of the story from the origins, to the platform she uses to sell. Depends on what B-roll I will be able to get this week. Still want to work on sound and transitions/cuts.

Run Lola Run – Post-Continuity Editing

In Run Lola Run, the editing makes used of nonlinear storytelling and time loops and shifting. Throughout the film we see Lola engage of different scenarios of the same event and these scenes are strung together through the use of editing. Every new scenario that Lola goes through is connected through the usage of the phone ringing and by establishing the settings of each scene. Whenever the phone rings, the…

Loops

In this GIF from The Shining, we see Jack endlessly playing with a ball by throwing it against a wall. The loop can be interpreted in many different ways and even establish the personality of a character and build upon their narrative. By endlessly throwing the ball, some may see it as the character attempting to release while others may see it as simply a playful act. This next loop messes…

Narrative Time

In Scott McCloud’s visual essay he makes several points about how the framing of panel’s can manipulate the reader’s sense of time passage within a comic. The best example that I think he gives is how a larger panel can give the reader a larger sense of time. In this case, this panel: can show convey more time passing rather than this panel: Even if there are more than one…

Continuity Video

  For my continuity assignment, I chose to go with the “making/doing something” route. In the video, I aimed to use continuity editing to showcase an action taking place without disrupting the narrative flow of the “story” itself. At the start of the video, I’m laying on my bed listening to music. From there, I put down my iPod, get up, and get out of bed. Then, as I walk…
