Yet more last clips

Derek Novosad created this piece with sand and photos. He played it in class with the Sex Pistols.

This is also some sand animation, this time from Erik Sirke. He showed it to me last week but I didn't have space on my thumb drive to take it home at that time.

Sand got very popular in the last week. Here is some tests by Colten Yuzicapi.

A few last tests

Here is Erik Sirke's take on the "battle donkey" idea from earlier in the term. He didn't have sound effects suitable for it on hand so I told him I would add them for him, but I didn't.

Geremy tried out sand animation. He makes it more effective by manipulating it in editing, creating a sense of frustration.

Geremy also tried his hand at the Light Bright (tm).

Thomas Retzlaff created this flicker work:

Thomas also created this test using Adobe After Effects combined with pixelation.

Colten's tests

Here are a few more tests. These are from Colten Yuzicapi. He handed them in on dvd, which I can usually crack and post without trouble, but for some reason his discs gave me a lot of trouble and I needed to take a very roundabout method to copy them and then encode them for the web.

End of term but not end of work

Here are a number of tests that Jacob and Ashley have been doing with the 3D software.
video
This is the 16mm footage created by Yvonne, Geremy, Stephen, and Eric. I hand processed it this morning. The triangle shape is my error from loading the bolex when it's wind was run out. It is the shutter out of sync. The first clip is the film as we see it, reversal colour processed as negative. I reversed in the computer so you can see what it should look like. There were other problems with the mounting of the motor that prevented the camera from backwinding and thus there are not as many tricks as they intended.

Janine's class

Janine Windolph took over the previous class and had everyone collaborate on a workshop creating and animating some characters and situations. Here are some tests to try to figure out water on a shore.

Here is a lip sync test we made, using one of the faces made in class.
video
Kristine Dowler made this dinosaur piece with toys, plants, etc with a bit of computer graphics/animation mixed in. Some good sound as well.

Ashley Green worked with sand, at first bottom lit and then top lit.
