Stumpy Joe

Exercise for Juxtaposition and Rhythm

For this exercise the class paired up and the small groups each wrote a short story.
then two pairs joined up and we were tasked with meshing the two stories together.
It's all about juxtaposition, parallel story lines, etc.

Got a lot of practice using the NLE on this one.
Pulling in the clips, sorting out the dross, and sending clips out to AE for colour work.

Our final exercise was to create a trailer for our scripts.

Lighting exercise

We spent the morning learning about types of lights and their application. The afternoon was ours to experiment. Our piece starts with extreme coloured lights while we played with the setups. Gradually we settled to a nicely lit portrait. Dave Timperley Jeremy Donazzan Nathaniel Oliveri Ashley Wing
