Statement for Show Opener
explain hierarchy of and relationships between the communication channels. what takes priority, if anything, and when does it do so?
right now my animation is not complete due to technical difficulties, but I will judge it as it is now. The image captures are of footage that I shot, that I cannot edit. I communicate to the viewer with digital text that fades in and out. It is very clean and to the point, but it is modest. The facts are suppose to humble someone and make them realize where there money should be going.
why you used the media/production techniques you utilized. what did that rendering style or formal approach add to your story?
I want to re-shoot for Wednesday so that I can get some live footage. I will shoot the same shots that are represented in my animatic and maybe some more experimental shots. Currently the rendering style is screen shots of live action footage, which have an interesting television interface quality to them. I wanted to use live action footage, because I am not used to editing or using it. I wanted to gain experience and knowledge, which I now have...and I will NEVER use a sony handycam ever again.
what, if any, new things did you learn through this process? was it more difficult to orchestrate things with all your options open?
I learned how to rip footage from a dvd, how to get into one of the schools computers and put new software on it without an administrators password (I took it off later of course), how to successfully use a fire wire, how to stream video from a television onto a camera, how to work new programs such as handbrake, VLC, and Mac the Ripper, how to create an animatic, how to ask Michael May for help, anyways...none of these methods worked for making footage editable but I will have this in my internal library for future reference.
My five facts:
