Thoughts and Ideas

Assignment Idea #1

This assignment goes along with the characters.

Make the ideal work space for your character. Fill it with different things that the character would like.

This is a library/office for me. It is filled with books as well as calming murals for the walls.

This is using several tools in Photoshop. The pattern tool to make the floor. Several times using adjustment and copy.

O.L.D. Agency

Three of us from the original group are working together. Our agency formed after Rex arrested Mack and I. So we have gone straight, sorta speak.

O.L.D. Agency is an agency that is trying to combat the evil’s of the internet. I am the Chief Director, while Rex it is the Lead Special Agent and Mack is the Lead Detective.

Character Interview

To have to do an interview that feels like an interrogation is nerve racking. I am rarely comfortable talking about my lifestyle. Most of the time, I keep what I am really thinking deep in my head. I did this “interview” with Burtis, Black, and Bond. ( I had a hard time downloading Grooms video)

The questions were, well, they were so different. To be asked how often I lie or what did I steal. That was just rude. I am not that type of girl. I am a true believer in treat others as you want to be treated. I believe that what you put out there will come back at you three fold.

I guess it could have been worse though. I mean, I have witnessed so crimes and had to be questioned about those. You would think I was used to it. It’s not my fault that weird stuff happens around my store. Feels like it is a magnet for the strange and unusual.

Oh well. I made it through.

Video Progress- 2

Today we were able to get the last of the filming done. It was cold out, but we were able to go downtown  to video tape us walking around, being hateful. We also did some at the ITCC. I actually had to spin around in those red “top” chairs.

I had may daughter with me today, which ended up being good. We had her doing the part for the bartender.  She is a ham. 🙂

Video Progress

This week, Patrick from the group and I made it out to the Fredericksburg Campus to video tape one of the scenes. It took us several hours to get this done for little over 3 minutes of recording. It was fun. We even got a co-student to let me push her out of the way. (Not too hard). We were supposed to meet up for a scene on Wednesday, but with me being stuck up in northern Virginia, and some of the others not being able to make it, we had to put it off.

Can’t wait to see the final.

Learn How to Read a Movie

After reading the How to read a movie article, I watched the Tarantino clip, Examples of Editing Techniques, and Camera Angles and Techniques.

Tarantino has the habit of using the camera angle from below. Watching the clip, it reminded me of the films that I had watched by him. The angle always seems to be looking at the bad guys or the one that was going to do some damage.

The Editing Techniques clip really gave some idea of what we could do for the video. The slow motion emphasizes the depth of feeling, to me. Playing Journey was unexpected though.
Camera Angles and technique clip, I understand more of how where the camera is placed changes how to understand what is going on in a movie. This goes back to the Tarantino clip of shooting from below.

All of these gave me ideas for how I think we should shot our video.

I can’t wait.
