Le Violoncelle

As my 2013 graduation came closer and closer, it was inevitable that goodbyes would have be made. A chapter of our lives would close and new beginnings would appear. During this period of inevitable ‘doom,’ one could say, it became ever more apparent that a display of appreciation for those who made my university experience that much more special was overdue.

WUSHU – Behind the Scenes

Preface

First, an infinite amount of thanks goes out to my dear friend EFuzzy. Without his help and patience this project would never have completed. He endured much bickering and criticism during a personal time of stress, and I am forever grateful for the time he gave me for this project, despite how much he came to hate filming and my lack of communication upon the filming’s completion. A huge amount of work, time, and sweat went into this project, and unlike most of my assignments that I’ve worked on, this was definitely a two-man effort. Previous projects like Together Alone were done with multiple people on board, but both of us had knowledge and expertise that overlapped greatly, but here, I worked with a friend that had a completely different skillset and knowledge pool than I did. Attempting to convey each others ideas and communicate properly quickly became a project challenge but it provided a wonderful learning experience. Read More

The general thought of having to move an immobile object for every frame in a film is generally mind-boggling in scale and effort; imagine having to move a figure about 24 times for just one second of footage.

White; A Brief Discussion

By | Introspective, Project | No Comments

The end of the semester rolled around, and before I knew it, I was hit on the head by the multitude of projects I had put off for so many months. It came as no surprise when I had to get myself to sit in front of the computer and churn out pages after pages of written text, seconds after seconds of musical notes, and lines after lines (or boxes after boxes) of written code for Interactive Media. Consecutive days were spent toiling away at semester-end projects, reminding me of my consistent procrastination habit. Read More
