Assignment #4: Data Moshing + Motion Tracking

I figured out the data moshing with this tutorial because the version of Avidemux they use works on my laptop. I have not tried the coding options because these experiments took me so long. There is some motion tracking in “Nature Glitch” which just sort of makes the glitched tree look more floaty. I still need to work on these skills but got the basics of getting it to work and had some fun messing with the footage and also enjoyed how the audio incidentally got glitched along with it.

Some ideas for installation…

Assignment #3: Slo-Mo Footage

I thought it would be fun to combine these two slow motion vignettes we filmed into a triptych to make the most epic and beautiful sneeze ever seen in a hypothetical public art installation (haha)...

Here is the original exercise footage I played with. I slowed down the footage even further and layered each person on top of themselves threefold. I am still getting the hang of the green screen, especially with imperfect lighting, but for this I decided to go with the green screen aesthetic. I will keep experimenting going forward.

Assignment #1 : Video Textures

I scanned a corner in my home with an iPhone camera using the in-camera slow motion setting. Then I used AE Brainstorm to choose randomized “Mr. Mercury”, “Plastic” and color correction effects.
