This assignment is my final piece for digital cinema. I wanted to create a mashup that demonstrated how metric montage techniques combined with video essay can be used to create a juxtaposition of images that provide visual evidence for a film thesis. The concept for this project stems from being a graduating senior myself. I’m all to familiar with the interview process, and I’ve experienced some disastrous interviews myself. I wanted to do something light hearted and satirical but informative so individuals (myself included) are aware of the most common job interview faux pas and learn how to avoid them.
The above piece uses quick video clips of popular interview scenes in movies and television mashed together. This is meant to introduce the viewer to the interview blunder and demonstrate what to avoid. The stock images I animated using an effect in Adobe Premier Pro are from Pexels (a company that provides free stock photos for commercial use, no attribution required). The stock photos and the voiceover are intended to inform the viewer of the correct techniques to use during a job interview. While providing visual evidence to substantiate my thesis.
In order to bring this project to life, I used Adobe Premier Pro. The stock images are from Pexels. The voiceover I recorded using the microphone on my iPhone. The movies and television clips are from the following listed in the order they appear:
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Me Before You
Grey’s Anatomy, Season 11 Episode 14 “The Distance”
Get A Job
