Class 02- Experimental visuals.


After bingeing random max tutorials online, I decided to try and recreate some psychedelic visuals with one clip from the collection of footage of last assignment. The clip I choose was the floating jellyfish, I was curious how their motion would be translated once I start to manipulate and distort it. Would it still be recognizable? Will I be able to make viewers be transfixed by the effect?


Original clip:

The Process:

Skimming through all footage to select one

Manipulating colors, also my laptop lags every time I try to screen record while I work on Max


Question:

Is there a way where I can create the effect of double exposure? Having one video play while another clip overlays it.


Performance Brainstorm:


I have been always interesting in the integration of the sonic and optic experience, bringing element of light and sound to correspond to one another. Ideally I was thinking for my final piece to bring these elements in a physical form while performing as well, I have another blog about all my ideas in another class as I wish incorporate the two. Click here. So I would like to use the first performance as a starting point to then build on later, starting with a collection of voice notes from my mother of all the advice she gives and build visuals around that as a story line. Along with mixing her voice to give some musical tonality.


As a back up plan I am also thinking of creating visuals along with any of these tracks:

- Lights out, worlds gone Bombay bicycle club

-Cinnamon Hayley Williams
