Check-In

How ironic it is to make a blog post about how you don’t have anything to write a blog post about.

I’m watching ‘Breaking Bad: The Movie’, Something I described only seconds ago as ‘the greatest mashup of all time’

What has essentially been done is someone has made a full 2-hour feature length film consisting of parts of the series.

If you consider how much content is being cut out you realise how amazing it is that the story can still be followed, however in a more abridged sense.

Basically I already have my idea for a remix, the only thing potentially standing in my way is lethargy. I could be doing something, but no. I’m sat watching this.

 

More to come this week.

Filming conference about North Korea.

I’m officially filming for ‘I escaped from North Korea’.

This conference is mainly about North Korean’s life, and I’m filming this to make documentary about this event.

It is really rare opportunity to hear about NK’s life in the UK, so there are more than 600 people (actually venue’s maximum seating capacity is 600) registered for the event and many people still want to get a ticket but it’s officially sold out.

For this reason, I plan to release full version of this soon.

Before releasing that, I would like to release the film about the prepping for conference; vlog using iPhone.

I used several apps with filters such as ‘paper cam’, and some timelapse effects like ‘hyperlapse’.

Edit;

Hello, now…

This is the actual video

So..

Its the assignment hand in Eve again.

Filmed on an iPhone 5 with a surprisingly good quality finish. During the making of the 1 minute mobile video masterpiece (I wish) a fish eye lens was also used but for one shot only.

Out of all the ideas I had, I finally came to a conclusion on Tuesday 28th, – Of course everyones favourite – PANCAKE DAY! Looking through all the snapchats and tweets made me want to join in on the activities, so I did just that.

Mobile apps used : 

Video Crop – Some Shots were edited on the iPhone due to framing issues.

Video Reverse – Used on a couple of shots for aesthetic pleasure.

Other equipment :

Tripod with iPhone 5 attachment.

 

Enjoy!

 

Time to Pfilter (Edit: Capital ‘P’)

Today’s the day I start applying myself to produce the 1 minute phone-produced-video for uni.

Ideas have been far and apart since the issuing of the task last Friday, so I thought the best place to start looking for inspiration was on the app store.

So away I went.

#BitCam – Photos only 😦

I’ll keep looking, but at the moment it’s looking like i’ll be deriving an idea from the content of the app, rather than having an idea and looking for apps which would make that idea a reality.

I have asked the folks over at r/askreddit for their suggestions of crazy, hidden, secret, exclusive apps which will make people go wow…

Pasty is nearly done.

Gather Round, Microphones

Yesterday was fun.

Working with my Sound Design group we plowed on with the production of the music track, set to be handed in in a month or so.

There was, up until today some turbulence regarding how we were going to tick all the creative boxes when it came to composing the live elements. I certainly felt it was unnecessary when all these sonic elements could be recreated using software.

Nevertheless we had the guitar down, having recorded several different parts of the guitar from the head of the guitar to that part of the strings near the bridge which produced that really punchy transient.

We ran what we had through effects such as: Reverb. That is all.

More to come. After guidance from Jos Hurst we are realigning our bow and gunning for the sunset.

Onwards, Nautical Engineers. No. Wait.

Onwards, Regular Audio Engineers but with a naval theme.

Done.

HELLO WORLD

Oh how original. Another blog kicked off with the overused phrase ‘Hello World’, like we’re some kind of newborn deer flopping onto the forest floor, still covered in afterbirth.

An oaky afterbirth?

Kind of an oaky afterbirth.

Anyhow. This is the blog which will be tracking our progress as we continue to learn all there is about content production in this modern world.

 

Nothing really more to say, have a few ideas about some videos coming up.

We’ll keep you posted.

They’re forcing us to.
