Loops

What I like about this gif loop is that it can go on forever. Alternatively, the viewer can decide when it ends, and when to move on to the next thing. The pauses in between the actions also makes it feel like a long time is passing in between actions. There’s a lot of tension that lengthens out the perceived time. This one also plays with time in the sense…

Montage Video Project

I decided to do a metric montage with a bit of humor. Here, all ten video shots are no more than three seconds in length and the subject matter shows an activity over time. The content of the montage and juxtaposed imagery are based on the story of a fictional character who wants to paint, but clearly doesn’t know how to, and so decides to teach himself how to create…

Loops!

I like the potential for the poetic and surreal imagery in loops. The way you can leverage optical illusions to portray ideas that may be difficult or impossible to do with real figures. They can also enforce the feeling of endlessness or repetition, just by the nature of something looping infinitely. They alter the perception of time- whether it condenses it or expands it, letting a moment linger rather than…

Temporal Montage

For my montage assignment, I went for a blend of Metric and Rhythmic. It is Metric because every shot is exactly 3 seconds, and rhythmic because Aimee is the center piece, while the outside changes around her. If you notice, it starts with dry grassy fields, and slowly turns to green hills and the river. This was taken from our drive from Pullman to Vancouver.

Montage

For this assignment, I decided to use the narrative that I tend to run into everyday; choosing what to wear. Being on time is not my strong suit, and I usually deviate from the use of color in my wardrobe choices, so it felt natural to incorporate that into the video.

Temporal Montage

I decided to go for a rhythmic montage for this assignment. While I kept pretty strong continuity between the shots, I also tried to cut as much filler between each initial shot as I could so they don’t always exactly match each action. I was happy to find in the edit that with a little audio mixing, all of the clicks and clacks of my computer came together seamlessly. I…

Temporal Montage

For my montage assignment I created a metric montage of myself making coffee in the morning. Each shot is 1 second, 9 frames long. I tried to use a variety of shots and use movement to carry the viewer through the montage.

Loops & GIFs

Above: Artist/Director/Photographer Mike Mellia pours coffee into his mug. This narrates the passage of time as he prepares his morning ‘Cup of Joe.’ One could us this in a scene involving morning rituals, or possibly the passage of time as one gets ready for the day. Above: Effie from Skins (UK) smokes a cigarette with an angsty look on her face. This GIF narrates her conversation with another character on…

Temporal Montage Assignment

  Here is my temporal montage short film. It is probably slightly ambitious for what the assignment called for, but I really wanted to try my idea out. This is a short story of a soldier in a tense situation. I was greatly inspired by the Tree of Life video we watched in class. I attempted at incorporating the same editing style, however my editing is not nearly as abstract. Brendan…

Montage

I tried to go with a well paced, rhythmic montage. I considered making all of the clips the same length, but I think taking extra time in some of the shots adds to the character and pace of getting ready in the morning (at least in my case).

Loops in Digital Cinema

Loops in digital cinema, or gifs, are probably most common to us through social media and communication through text messages. However, gifs, or simply looped video, can be much more than that. Some gifs can take on a more “artistic,” thought out, approach instead of the usual gag, or meme, to relate to that day’s difficulties. One such example is the gif above, which displays the skyline of San Francisco…

Loops

In this GIF we see the character endlessly removing his sunglasses. Loops can be interpreted by many ways. In this case it’s a bit unsettling. In this loop the subject appears to be in an ocean being overtaken by waves. Is it a loop? Or is it real time? The distortion can present the viewer with an impossible situation, or a representation of time. https://youtu.be/aKLBD6f0shY In this loop we see…

Metric Montage

For this assignment, I decided to create a metric montage of me cleaning my room to show both the passing of time and the healthy mindset that stems from working in a clean environment. Each of my clips are exactly 3 seconds long and show just enough of each smaller process that goes into cleaning my room, including picking up everything I have laying around, cleaning my desk, dusting, and…

Loops

In terms of time, gifs/loops such as this are suspenseful to say the least. When watching this gif, even though it’s a loop, there are many questions that can be asked as we think in terms of our own reality. Even though we know there’s no possible way for us to walk through these doorways forever, it seems as though we are making no progress towards the light. While the…

Temporal Montage

  This is my temporal montage that shows me getting ready for a movie night. My montage is a metric montage as each shot is just 3 seconds long. This was my first time making a montage and I struggled to show the passage of time without using continuous shots. I made every shot the same length no matter what was happening because I did not want to show exactly…

Loops

The first GIF I chose is by far my favorite loop of all time and it shows Jack Nicholson’s character from The Shining endlessly breaking down the door. This GIF manipulates time by making it seem as if he will be breaking down the door forever with one endless strike after another. The second loop I chose showcases time in a very interesting manner. How long has this man been…

This First loop is of a Pancake machine, and besides it being an excellent loop, it does show the passage of time by having new pancakes come in, get flipped, then exit frame. giving this idea that they are being finished off screen. This machine in the process to make frozen pancakes [l] from perfectloops The second loop I picked is of wind blowing in a field. This gif shows…

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…
