Evaluation Question 4
Transcript of Evaluation Question 4
In order to make my artist research more visual and keep my blog looking current, I created headers for my Blogger posts. I used Photoshop to create these as its the most up to date software, allowing for the creation of the the highest quality. The photo's were exported in JPEG which allowed me to upload to the internet easily.
PRODUCTION- FILMING- CAMERA AND LENSES
Programs used to create my Evaluation Work consisted of:
- Adobe Photoshop was used to create the document in a graphic and visual way.
- Prezi was used to present my work in a interactive format that's visual and appealing.
- Power Point was used when all that was required was a visual way of presenting text.
- Calameo (PDF Hosting) was how i created the book like effect for Question 1. Its an easy way of uploading PDF's to the internet.
- Imgur (Image Hosting) simply used to store images, and then using the embed code to present them into blogger.
- Youtube was used to upload my Video in a high quality format that's easy to access. I used it over Vimeo as Vimeo has a monthly upload limit.
- Outlook was used to communicate with my teachers for feedback.
Within the editing process, due to filming in RAW, processing my footage took longer than if i filmed in MP4/H.264. This changes in format did however, give me a great deal of creative freedom in terms of color grading. My first stage is to change the footage from the RAW format into that which is usable. To do this, I use MLV viewer (an open source RAW preview software) to convert my files to DNG (Digital Negative Format). Once this is complete, the sequence of images is imported into After Effects, where I'm able to edit the footage as you would any RAW image.
How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
EDITING 2- Creating a RAW workflow
Once I'd color graded my footage, I exported the footage out of AE and into Premiere Pro. From this point onwards, I worked with the H.264, which allowed for a standard workflow within PR. One of the fantastic things about Creative Cloud is that all the programs are seamlessly integrated.
I edited with Premiere Pro using a H.264 codec, this way exporting was simple and youtube upload was equally as simple.
Exporting was via media encoder, another Adobe program, which functions as a separate entity to any other program which is currently open. This allowed me to color grade, and be exporting the last clip that I graded at the same time. Its also a much faster method of exporting RAM can be dedicated to the program rather than a built in Render Queue. This latest version of Creative Cloud is how i used New Media Technology within editing, my entire editing process hinges on using the latest software in order to use the latest hacks for camera etc.
Filming on a 5d Mark ii gave me massive creative freedom and incredible quality footage. Using the
magic lantern Firmware gives access to open source
film codecs such as filming in RAW. Filming in RAW allowed for a higher bit rate to be accessible without having to de-interlace my footage after export.
As for lenses, I used a combination of:
- 50mm f.2
- 85mm t1.5/f1.5
However, the majority of the film was done with the 50mm due to it being the most versatile for the project. It also allowed me to alter the aperture of the lens to change the depth of field in a manner that not normally accessible
Without doubt the best open source firmware available for Canon Cameras at the moment. Magic lantern transforms a DSLR camera into a professional film camera.
This is made possible through cutting the restrictions that Canon places on its cameras for the sake of being "User Friendly".
Modules are one of the main features which enable you remove restrictions on the cameras. These are user written code that changes the basic way that the camera operates. I'll touch on the main module that I use within the editing section of this evaluation.
Furthermore, the firmware allows you too fine-tune the images that you're shooting. Increasing bit rate and several other important features. The firmware also allows you fine tune the exposure settings, allowing you to treat a video in the same way that you a photograph, with the same freedom.
After Effect RAW Module
GLIDECAM is the most up to date and current method of camera stabilization. Light, handheld and portable, i used the GLIDECAM to achieve the level of smooth motion shots.
When working towards my Pre-Production tasks, I used Microsoft office to work on my idea's and concepts. By using Microsoft Office i was able to interface with multiple computers/electronic devices with standard file formats allowing me to work most effectively as adaptations were able to be made simply and quickly. When investigating the idea of the using VFX in my piece, I experimented with Adobe After Effects. Filming my test shots in RAW and using the same workflow as when I filmed my normal task.
Creating my VFX shots ensured that I was able to judge whether or not the connotations of the frames being filled would work with the underlying themes of the piece.
Digipack and Poster Work
Both my Digipack and Poster were designed in Adobe Photoshop. This allowed me to edit the photographs i took during the film shoot using the RAW module.
I used Gradient Layers to create the colour
on the top of images and Brushes to create
