FINAL Project – DROPOFF

Okay, so here it is! Finally! So. Much. Work. I thought I’d never get done! My knee injury didn’t help matters, that’s for certain. But I finished and that’s what counts. Once again, it’s challenging being both in front of and behind the camera, and low-light shots are never easy. Yet, I’m happy with the shots I took; I think they turned out well. I tried some new ideas I…

The Train – Final Video

This is a story about two sisters, both plagued with the same demons. [Trigger Warning: flashing images and potentially sensitive content] I wanted to address the topic of suicide in an unconventional way, and perhaps offer a perspective that not everyone might consider. Often times, people who fight suicidal thoughts or tendencies are at war with themselves and their inner demons. They can be so friendly, enticing, and even welcoming….

Final – Sundays

This final was a struggle, to say the least. I had grand visions for an interactive story made with loops and a little JavaScript. I wanted to tell the story of two people looking for one another throughout different locations, and when both people were in the same “location”, the user would get a different meeting between them based on what location they ended up meeting at. My first roadblock…

Final Project – How to Write a Song

This video is a lighthearted comedy video about me trying to finish a song that I am writing, and all of the things I try to do in order to make that happen – complete with a little teaser at the end for when the song may actually be posted to my main channel. If you saw my first rough cut for this project, you would know that coming up…

Final Cut (for now)

This is the final cut. I added music, day for night editing technique, dubbed in a better scream, and added some tense subtle ticking noises to the end. I also added a short stock footage video at the beginning to add context, that it’s a house in the woods, making the leaves and the spirit that follows the character make more sense. Overall, it’s better than I thought it would…

Final Project: Subaru Ad

For my final project I created a mock-ad for a Subaru Forester. Using my old 2001 Subaru Forester, I frame the commercial as the story of an average PNW Subaru-driving hipster looking to upgrade his car. Let me know what you think, especially of the timing and the comedic aspect of the twist ending.

Final Project

I have to admit, the idea of not having many guidelines for the final project really gave me trouble when it came to thinking of what exactly I wanted to film. I kept bouncing between a narrative or second job interview, and ultimately, decided to create a narrative. After being intrigued by the idea of an interactive narrative using YouTube cards, I decided that would work best for me. However,…

Final Project – My Final Fantasy

When approaching this final project, I practically had no idea on what exactly to do. Usually, when I’m given free rein on a project I almost always draw a blank! I even went to Will several times on what videos I could create and subjects to explore. One video idea that we both came up with was to create a video essay. I thought this would be a great idea…

Draft of Final Project (will post final version later today)

Hey guys, just thought I would post a quick near-final version of my final project before posting the final version later today! The only thing missing is some more audio (there will be a bit of cheery/comical background music here and there) and adjustments to the audio that is there. You’ll notice that this is a completely different video/concept than my last post – somehow, I managed to get inspired…

Final Project

My final project is a short documentary on my aunt Terri Shanahan. She is an interior designer, artist, blogger, and a huge inspiration to me both creatively and personally. I ran into a few problems during the production of this. My battery died so I wasn’t able to get all the footage I had planned. Finding creative angles in small spaces along with lighting and audio was also a challenge….

Final Project

Hi class, for my final project I made two experimental, non-sequitur art films. Comment Dit-On? is a silent art film inspired by French slang, in which I spoke (adult) French phrases alongside varying compositions of my mouth moving. Comment Dit-On translates to “How do you say” in French, so I played with the title and made it impossible to depict how to say these phrases. The second one was inspired…

Bowen – Final

For my final edit, I choose to add instrumental music and reorder certain clips of the interview. My project overall was meant to showcase the different perspectives people offer when asked the same questions. I really enjoyed the process and the outcome. I have over an hour of interview material that I boiled down to three minutes of highlights. I wanted to juxtapose contrasting responses to amplify the differences. I primarily used…

FINAL Project – Less rougher cut…

So this isn’t the final polished version, but I’ve added music to what I posted before. I have it timed so that actions, whether bodily or otherwise, are matched to the beat of the music. Although it’s not in here yet, I also took more footage for the beginning to build up the story, provide some needed info about the protagonist, and to add suspense. I’ll add that along with…
