Digital Manipulation



BLOG POST:
Surrealism art is and next level editing. Photo editing is not as hard as Video editing. Surrealism is an word that describes a creative and unique photo art or edit. what the picture on top is my first one that i ever made with the computer. I got my own 3 pictures and put it in a one piece picture that has been edited. Finding pictures and having to think what i wanted to create was a hard task. It is my first photo that i created and its the only photo that i made.

With our new technology today, people are more able to create and do something that could be possible to do. This photo editing has a big impact from the history of arts. Without computers, surrealism art can still be made. Surrealism was invented more than hundred years ago. Back then they had no computer, no good technology, but it was more creative. I wouldn't be able to create my own surrealism without technology. it would've been way different without computers.

The 15-Day photo challenge was a way to improve your mind from photography. During this 15-Day you can improve your skills if you commit to it. We had to take nice pictures of the topic for the day, make it to easy to understand. Two days that i was in charge of the class which it was Travel and Trust. The cap of this topic Trust is that you don't show everything in the picture, like for ex. a sunset with the car, half of the car shows in the photo and the rest is the nice sunset and trees. Trust for trust .
I cant say that i have improved my skills with taking pictures, but i am trying hard to be good at it even tho i dont do my other work.

Interview Composition

BLOG POST:

The difference between Host/Reporter and Interview is that a host or reporter stays out of sight of the camera. Host/Reporter asks questions about the person who is being interviewed. The interview or the person in the camera is the one that answers the questions, the person does not look directly to the camera, the person looks to the reporter which could be standing to the left or right of the camera without being seen.

The background of the interview should be a place that describes the topic of the interview or the characteristic of the person. Never shoot of a background that does not have much details to it that describes the video. Look room is the surrounding of the shoots/video, the space between the camera and the interview or the host.

The most important thing about making a video and make it a success and look entertaining to the viewer is that you have to put a lot of details to make it look interesting for the viewer. It also has to do with the shoots, taking some good shots for the video is like the most important thing of the interview. Background audio must be also good so that the viewer watch the whole video instead of watching it for 10sec and leave.

Under The Blood Red Sun

This film was filmed by Director, Mr. Tim Savage and Associate Producer, Mrs. Mardi Savage.
They were both inspired to make a film about the attack on Pearl Harbor. This film took them almost 10 years to produce and it continues to be an ongoing effort to see profit.

For the most part, casting the characters wasn't a problem for them, however finding the right actor for one character was a challenge. The young Japanese boy, Toby was hard to find because not many young Japanese actors fit this character from the book.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was one of the worst acts of war in American history. There were many people from Japan living in Hawaii during this time. In the movie, his father was arrested and taken into a refugee camp on a nearby island. The character playing the family's grandpa also got taken away from them because of his Japanese heritage.

One question I asked Mr. and Mrs. Savage was about finding the right people to play each character. They explained that it was time consuming and difficult to find the right actor for Toby's character. But once they found the right actor for Toby, the other characters fell into place easily and they were ready to begin filming.

Cinemagraph



Cinemagraph is an animated GIF video clip that give illusion to mess with your brain. Cinemagraph is not very difficult to make once you understand how it works and how to make it look very good. Basically it is an looped video with some editing include to it to get the cinemagraph action. You well have to take video shots and choose from one of them, a very nice one to get this cinemagraph look good to the viewers. Creating cinemapgraph is not really hard, first you must take a video of something that one object is moving and the rest is just an image. Second get the video on your computer and start editing. The process is taken in to Final Cut Pro.

For the first attempt, I wanted to make it look very nice and clean as I can, I was confident. The person looks like he is moving, to give the viewer of what he is doing. My class did this all together to capture one of the student to be the model (Luca). We used our smart phones to get the capture because we weren't able to use the expensive cameras. It was very hard to capture the video because our phones has to be really stable, I used the table and the hydroflask in the back, but the table was moving a little. My first attempt was not the perfect but it was acceptable. I just need to improve my editing, my camera and get a stabilizer for the camera and i will be all good.
