My final work is a multi-modal film titled “Preserved Memory of Emotion” (PME). This film explores the relationship between advances in technology and human emotion by questioning our societal dependence on technology. Continue reading “MEDA302 Critical Reflection: Final Project”
This is it. Week 13, the final push!
This week I edited my film and put the final touches on it. I added all the effects I wanted and made some adjustments to how I wanted the film to flow. With the completed product now, I feel like it is more suited to my concept. I feel like over these last couple of weeks the concept and the project have naturally developed themselves. Continue reading “MEDA302 Week 13”
This week I put my final project together, but not in the way I intended it to be put together. Originally, I had the idea that my project would be a compilation of short 1-minute videos. However, it is no longer a compilation but more of a short film. I took the best bits of content I made and edited it into a nice short multi-modal film. Continue reading “MEDA302 Week 12”
Week 11 = Crisis Week
This week I had planned to show my tutors Jo and Matt what I had done so far. However, I jumped on my computer and found out that their had been a file error and all 12 of my projects hadn’t saved. Luckily enough, I still had the individual video files and audio files. But all the work I had done editing them in week 10 had been deleted.
I was pretty guttered by this fact, so I decided to spend the lesson focusing on writing a clear spoken text dialogue for the final project. Continue reading “MEDA302 Week 11”
Over Mid-Semester break and Week 10 I was able to crank out a lot of work. Since I was finally clear on my concept, I was able to envision my final project and as a result, create appropriate content.
During the Mid-Semester break, I recorded 12 videos and 12 Audio tracks. All the audio tracks were piano compositions by me capturing a range of emotions. Some songs had darker tones and others had much lighter tones. The duration of these tunes ranged from 1-2 minutes each. Continue reading “MEDA302 Week 10”
This week I continued to work on developing my concept and writing the poems. I decided that I would take a break from trying to record video or record music this week until I further develop my concept. Continue reading “MEDA302 Week 9”
It’s the end of week 8 and I am still experimenting with Video and Audio. It is a struggle and I think this struggle is due to the fact that my concept is still not solid. So far my concept focuses on the emotions and reflective thought of people doing simple tasks. This is very similar to my early work on “Thoughts in a Cracked Bottle” in MEDA101. I needed to develop my concept further. Continue reading “MEDA302 WEEK 8”
