Hey so I did my first Gallery display about this time last year and haven’t had the chance to post it up until now, what with college and jazz. Feel free to leave any advice…
Right so I mentioned my project last time for my stop motion piece ‘The Everyday Situationist’ and I taught that I would show you a simple way for making your own stop motion. Keep in mind this was just a prototype and will be easy to replicate if you wanna try it.
Basically it involves a camera and slowly moving a piece in front of a camera .And its in these pictures that make a frame, which when placed together can make a short video piece. Depending on how realistic you want the video to be you can add more frames a second, which takes more time and will power to only change the object in the frame as slightly as possible between frames. For how I made my actual video you need a live feed from a DLSR camera and a program for stop motion (if you use dragon frame theirs a months free trial and it’s pretty decent) and from then on it pretty simple, until you get to the joys of editing the video piece together (with movie maker, or premiere)
So the Situationist art movement was a movement unlike any other, and the movement that I got placed with for my final assessment for college. Basically what they wished to do was create a new everyday, where people wouldn’t be burdened with the mundanely of the nine to five. One of my favorite artist of this Constant Nuremberg ,who took this philosophy and created what he referred to as a New Babylon.
So it’s with this movement and man, that I pieced together my own reality in a short video titled “The everyday Situationist” which I will upload shortly. Underneath is the set that I made for the production, fell free to let me know what you think;
So long time no post, but I have a pretty decent excuse, I have spent a long time getting into college. Actually I have just finished my first assessment, where me, along with four others in my group, had to write/design and perform a play for the local primary school.
Naturally I got put in charge of set and this is the end result. Hope you enjoy, I will be trying to get my portfolio that I used to get into college up here at some point soon (just in case theirs anyone out their stressing as much about a portfolio as I have) Enjoy!
