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…

Fixed Final Project

Hello everyone! Thank you for all your feedback in class the other Thursday! I was so grateful to have been able to show you guys my video ahead of time.

Montage Assignment

This is my montage my assignment.  I kept it at exactly 60 seconds, and I added the audio that I recorded myself because the piano without any sound would look really weird.  Fun fact: I actually recorded him performing the same piece in entirety about five times.

The camera would be on the side of her…

Cinemagraphs explored.

We can only look and focus on one thing at a time, but there is a lot of other stuff happening beyond what we see.   This cinemagraph utilizes the clock gears as a great way to show the passage of time.   This one also portrays…

(Stipan) McCloud’s Time Frame Post

Throughout the comic (Understanding Comics), Scott McCloud describes the “infinitely weird” time frame within comics. This is due to how the usage of words in a frame can change the impact of the frame. “From a lifetime of conversations, we can be sure that a “pause” panel like this lasts for no more than several seconds.”(pg. 100) This meaning that whenever a panel is just a scene with no dialogue,…

Who Dunnit?

For this Who Dunnit scenario, I wanted to illustrate the mystery of an anonymous gift alluding to at least two different possibilities. Honestly, I was quite uninspired, and struggled to come up with a plot for this video.  The use of props such as a card without a sender and pedals leading to different locations assisted in identifying a suspect where there were no actors. However, when the pedals lead…
