This is my experiment with black light cow skull painting. This past fall I decided that the best way to learn how to shoot and edit video would be through the participation in three video production courses. Some may find the thought of three video courses to be suicidal, however I found the experience to be extremely efficient and that perhaps there is some logic behind full-immersion teaching techniques. The final project for my most challenging production course was fairly open-ended, but had to be “artistic” in nature. This is what I created.
Are you sick of dubstep yet? Me too (especially after 4 hours of straight editing). However, I thought that a dubstep song was the only sort of genre of music that would provide enough variety to match my painting habits. Originally this was supposed to be a time lapsed piece, but that crashed and burned within a matter of hours after engaging in the project (horrible lines when rendered in FCP?). After scrapping that and turning to dubstep, the editing process picked up.
In the end I just wanted a video that would engage viewers on a level that would immerse them in a viewer experience without any sense of time. This was inspired by a video of Supakitch and Koralie’s work. I know that my video is no where near theirs. However, one day, I’d like to get there. All in due time.
