Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Research Although I wasn’t able to get all the dancers in one spot this week, I did have a chance to map some of the movements from one, with my updated mapping code. Sadly, the room wasn’t large enough to capture every movement with the […]

Inspiration for Beginner Creatives

Inspiration for Beginner Creatives

I’m posting this via Alex at ISO50, because I know there are a few visitors to this blog that should really be inspired by it… Perhaps more than any other industry, learning to be a creative can be tough. You can become quickly disillusioned when […]

Void Mix – March 08

Void Mix – March 08

Seeing as you all snapped up the Mixed Peas mix like nothing else, I thought I’d put up another old one for y’all: my set from Void in March, 2008. It was a grime special and whilst the mixing isn’t top shelf, it’s probably one […]

Digital Video 2 – Week 07

Digital Video 2 – Week 07

Research I’ve approached this project in reverse to how I would have done things in the past. However, it’s probably more of a realistic workflow when approaching a ‘real world’ job. Instead of starting with images, which are forced into some kind of storyline, I […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 07

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 07

Research During the break, I met with the performers, who will be helping me greatly with my project. I had really been sweating on meeting up with them, because it marks the beginning of work really getting under way. The following is a short video […]

Screen Culture – Week 07

Screen Culture – Week 07

Research As with all my subjects this semester, ‘Week 07’ is really a week of our mid-semester break. Yes, they decided to call it ‘Research Week’, where we’re able to come in and arrange meetings with our tutors/lecturers, but as anyone who’s ever been to […]

Mixed Peas – 4 Years On

Mixed Peas – 4 Years On

It really blows my mind that I put this mix together in August, 2005. What is even more surprising is that I still get asked about it. It’s no secret that I’m no longer a part of the Sydney dubstep scene, but back in 2005, […]

Screen Culture – Week 06

Screen Culture – Week 06

Research Bit of a strategic sickie this week for Screen Culture. So unfortunately I missed watching excerpts of the brilliant Dr. Strangelove, as part of the topic of ‘Military History of the Computer Screen’. So instead of doing any of these readings, I took a […]

Anonymous Present Their Demands

Anonymous Present Their Demands

The debate for Internet censorship in Australia took an interesting turn today. Whilst I’m not about to condone their action on my blog, I see it as vital that the discussion around this topic is kept alive. The Rudd Government continues with a string of […]

Digital Video 2 – Week 06

Digital Video 2 – Week 06

Classwork We went through the basics of keying (or matting) in both the lecture and tutorial this week. Programs like After Effects have really made this process much easier than it used to be. It doesn’t take much digging through older music videos to see […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 06

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 06

Classwork Disparate ideas came together quickly in class this week. With the amazing assistance of a guest tutor (who’s name escapes me now – note to self: find out name and compliment guest tutor), it wasn’t long before we made quick work of the structure […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 06

Sound Media 2 – Week 06

Classwork This week marks the halfway point for the semester. It’s a mildly frightening prospect to know that there’s only a couple of months before I need to produce a finished piece. Presenting where my project is at was a little difficult, because unlike most […]
