Screen Culture – Week 04

Screen Culture – Week 04

Classwork Digital Cinema was the focus for Screen Culture this week. Obviously, the term itself immediately connects with an image of contemporary cinema: theatres showing Hollywood-style, narrative film. However, as we stepped warily down the path of Lev Manovich‘s The Language of New Media, it…

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 02

Classwork Getting my hands on a Wii remote (Wiimote) in the studio was a surprisingly inspiring experience. What was essentially a class of playing Wii games, gave me a taste of what this controller is capable of outputting. It is clearly more sensitive than I…

Digital Video – Week 11

Digital Video – Week 11

Development Digital Video 1 was a subject which it was not a requirement to write a weekly journal. However, I found that this is a process that helped me throughout my work, so I kept completing them anyway. This was until a couple of weeks…

Code Development Finally, the first element of my sketch is behaving itself. The RSS feeds are now appearing one beneath the other, and moving steadily down the page. This was a lot more difficult than I had first expected, and completed in no small part…

Digital Video – Week 07

Digital Video – Week 07

Classwork Speaking about different treatments for Red Riding Hood in class made me think about our script in another way. I realised that it was not necessarily important to find a text that fit within our time limit and other restrictions, but instead to find…

Multimedia Authoring – Week 07

Class Work We were introduced to sound within Processing this week. Using primarily the Minim library, we took a look at how to get sound both in and out of our sketches. I’m quite interested in how sound can be used in programming and installation…

Digital Video – Week 06

Classwork One down and one to go. Our documentary seemed to be fairly well received, with some really helpful constructive criticism. I really appreciate being told where I’ve gone wrong, when there’s reasoning and alternative suggestions behind it. But without any time to rest, we’re…

Multimedia Authoring – Week 05

Code Research Launching into more chapters of Learning Processing over the break, I think I’ve come to the first point of really struggling with the concepts presented in the book. Making my way through ‘Functions’, ‘Objects’ and ‘Arrays’, I feel like we’re starting to get…

Digital Video – Week 04

Development Unfortunately, the weather didn’t really turn it on for us, so lighting within the warehouse wasn’t quite what we had hoped. Whilst we had the Dedo lighting kit to help us, I think in retrospect, a bigger wash light would have been more helpful.…

Multimedia Authoring – Week 04

Class Work This week we were introduced to the concept of creating our own functions, as well as being given a Processing sketch that displayed the difference between the current and previous frame from a connected video camera. For anyone that has done any programming…

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 03

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 03

Work We were finally handed a biped character this week. Actually creating the character ourselves is something not yet in our grasp, so we’re simply attempting to animate it in a semi-realistic manner. From what I’ve learnt so far, the trick with character animation is…

Digital Video – Week 03

Class Work Our pitch was received quite well during the last class. With a degree of trepidation, we stepped up first, expecting to be grilled. But instead we were guided through a ‘to-do’ checklist of our planned shoot. I think our pitch went smoothly in…

Christmas Lights (for Nerds)

Christmas Lights (for Nerds)

Our street takes Christmas pretty seriously. At least in Australian terms. Most people in the street take the time to decorate their house (for which there are prizes given, and an Oscar-esque bribery/scandal sideshow), before we close the street for a communal Christmas lunch. Santa arrives…

Dusk – Faux Lighting

Dusk – Faux Lighting

As part of our Underbelly Arts project, Dusk, I am working on a way to create the illusion of moving lighting on objects. In fact, the way I’m approaching the task is not so much about lighting, but instead generating false shadows on and around…

Lighting Tests

Lighting Tests

Emulating lighting will be a real focus for my end of year uni project and an upcoming installation piece (more on that very soon, once the official promo goes live). I need to create something that is capable to at least initially trick the eye…

Back To School

Back To School

There’s still a month or so before I’m back to uni for the final year of my undergrad. But being the last year, I’m pretty determined to put my head down and hit the ground running to make sure I’ve got the option of enrolling…

Who Writes This Crap?

Who Writes This Crap?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve upgraded both Pro Tools and Ableton Live (both now in their 8th release), thanks to my K. Rudd bonus cheque. It’s only now that I’ve finished uni for a few weeks that I’ve had a chance to really…
