Week 9 Summary

Hey guys!

Week 9 was the first week I began to officially participate on a regular basis in effort to complete the credit offered by this class.

I began with a scene analysis assignment, where I decided to use a scene from the Dark Knight, and discuss the music, tempo, camera angles, and other aspects of filmmaking that went into the production of this scene from an amazing movie. I see now that this assignment was supposed to have a voice over element, but during the creation I just wrote an essay style assessment of the scene based on the readings from Ebert and Zhou.

After the scene analysis I began to fulfill the assignment requirement by completing 12 stars of assignments of video. I rented a camera from the Convergence Center for this week, and recorded myself doing various things and compiling video in order to complete the assignments.

The first assignment I completed is titled “Video Crack”, and it was worth 4.5 stars.  I had a lot of fun working on this project because I had to think of a good song for the scenario and apply it to the scene accordingly.

Next, I decided saw a video on youtube of a man punching a kangaroo, and it got me interested in other kangaroo-people interactions. I was surprised to find a considerable amount of content related to people fighting with kangaroos! So I decided to compile a video of a few of my favorite interactions with kangaroos.  While this assignment isn’t listed in the assignment bank that I know of, I really wanted to do a kangaroo montage video anyways, and I thought it would be appropriate for the video assignment section.


The final work I completed was a time lapse clip of creating something using paper.  The assignment is titled “Six Second Art” and was worth 3.5 stars.
