Tasmeem Interstitial Video – Final Reflection

Looking back at the process of making the video, I realised that I had a lot of fun experimenting with many different media. My chicken drawings were just something I drew randomly whenever I was bored on paper, and were never really something I showed to others. But as people kept noticing them in my…

Tasmeem Interstitial Video – Week 3

I began experimenting with many different medias for the chicken drawings. At first I used writing/drawing tools like pens, markers, highlighters, crayons, etc.   These were really easy to recreate because I am so used to drawing them that they didn’t make much of difference for me. So I felt like I needed the images…

Tasmeem Interstitial Video – Week 2

For the introduction of the video, I planned to start it off with me showing how I draw the chicken, under the title “The Five Second Chicken.” This way, people who are watching the video will understand the concept and the interest behind the chicken, and how it was originally created. Even though there is…

Tasmeem Interstitial Video – Week 1

I felt that the idea of making a short 30 second video about anything we want is a perfect final project to end the course with. Since we had to come up with atlas 5-10 video ideas, I just couldn’t seem to find one I was really into. The ideas I came up with were;…

Fanzines – Final Reflection

At the start of the project, I was excited to do something that included arts and crafts and DIY, since its always been something I enjoyed. My craft isn’t the best, so it was nice to work on something that I didn’t need to stress so much about in those terms. However, I didn’t realise…

Fanzines – Week 3

Feedback I received feedback from my peers regarding the design and layout of my zine. I got comments like: -to use white paper instead of colored because the content and images inside were already colorful enough -nice touch of ripped paper, looks childish which fits in with the theme -reduce the feature article, too many…

Fanzines – Week 2

Research Reflection As I was researching my subculture, I seemed to get a lot of the same toys and games mentioned over and over again, therefore I picked a few of the most commonly mentioned ones in which I have owned before to talk about throughout my zine. I found many articles and blogs that…

Fanzines – Week 1

Research What is a zine? http://artmatters.ca/wp/2008/08/what-is-a-zine/ The article explains that zines are usually a non – commercial, non professional publication, and are very similar to magazines but with a twist. They are mostly directed to a specific subculture and to voice an opinion or matter towards that subculture, whereas a magazine is usually produced to…

Week 3 – Kinetic Typography

I discovered new effects that I distributed between different parts of the video; one of them being type on a path, where you would create a shape or line and your type would lay on it and/or move in that shape./ One of the lines in my dialogue is “If that plane leaves the ground…

Week 2 – Kinetic Typography

I began first by editing my audio in the Audacity program, to cut out the parts I did not want as part of the dialogue. My entire audio file ended up lasting around 1 minute and 5 seconds long, which was within a perfect range for the project. As I was adding in the first…

Week 1 – Kinetic Typography

I always loved lyrical music videos, where type moves across the screen to the pace of the song, like Ed Sheeran’s ‘shape of you’ and ‘perfect’ official lyric videos. When I heard that we weren’t allowed to choose songs, I was quite disappointed and confused because I don’t think I’ve ever seen kinetic typography videos…

Week 3 – Film Poster

As I was tiling my posters, I did not notice any bad pixelation on the print job for any of the images. I was happy with the composition and sizes of the imagery and type that I used for the size of the poster itself. After receiving feedback on my posters, I was told to…
