Visual Novel Essay

Artist Note:   For my final project, I wanted to create an essay that was meant to educate people on what a visual novels exactly is. In short, a visual novel is a sub genre of gaming that’s popular in Japan, while the Western Audience mostly doesn’t know about these games. In the beginning of this semester whenever these games were brought up, people mostly didn’t even know what I…

“Terrible Oscars” Final Submission

Hey everyone, Out of everything we learned in this wonderful class, my two favorite subjects definitely had to be continuity and the mixing various movies together. So, for my final, I decided to combine these two and create a short story told through various terrible films. Certain clips and edits kept getting copyrighted so I had to cut them, hopefully, the continuity still holds up. My submission for my finale…

Patriot Guard Riders – Final Project

For my final, I interviewed my father about his role with the Patriot Guard Riders. Originally, he thought it would be best to interview the district captain in southwest Washington. Since I had already done that for the interview project, my dad agreed to be interviewed as well. Some of the footage I acquired in addition to the original footage was from a mission to honor 32 vets who passed…

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…

Final Project – Childhood War Memories

My final project is supposed to be housed in a website – but it isn’t working properly.  It was working fine on my pc in Firefox, but is not working in Chrome on Macs, so I’m just adding it as a blog post.  That means that the last paragraph of this Artist’s Statement won’t make sense, but it will give you an idea of how the project was intended to…

Round the Bend – Final!

For this project I really wanted to focus on integrating my interests and talents into the film medium. While I do not have much experience in filming, I am knowledgable in costume design, monster creation, and framing. I wanted to really highlight these skills by creating my own monster and featuring it in a short film. However, I needed help in bringing this project to life, so I got some…

Final Project Rough Cut

There are still a couple things I am planning to do with it that I just hadn’t gotten to tonight. I plan on adding some subtitles for the parts of the video where the surrounding noise in the room is loud. There are a couple sentences where the support guy speaks and you can’t understand what he is saying. I do believe this would be where a mic would have…

Final Project for Digital Cinema Fall 2017

  Creative burnouts happen at the most inopportune times. It just so happens that I was experiencing one this semester, and it really took a toll on my final project for this class. I originally wanted to create a video about how difficult it is to deal with sensory input when I am reading. However, as I was planning out the project I realized that my vision could not be…

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. Sadly I was not in class our last meeting due to catching the flu. I took the feed back and tried to change it up a bit to where it makes more sense. I defiantly love the original and final…

The Final Mashup

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…

The story is told through police interrogation videos and occasionally shows flashbacks of what the friends are describing. The clips can be viewed in any order but are on the website in an order that clearly tells the viewers what…

Final Project Submission

Hi there! I really enjoyed this class, I was unsure of what to create even up until the day I filmed this so I had a bit of a tough time getting all the editing and footage together, the biggest problem was that I had a script for the story and I had to cut out a great chunk of the dialogue and see how things could fit together. The…
