Digital Video 2 – Week 12

Digital Video 2 – Week 12

As I’m returning to uni for 2010 tomorrow, I thought it might be best to finish off the last couple of entries from 2009. Wow, this is embarrassingly late. I’m probably not able to recall an accurate description of my process at this stage, so […]

Please Stop With All The Fun

Please Stop With All The Fun

It’s difficult to find the time for blog writing amongst all the drinking, music and general fun that’s been going on around the place over the past month. Instead of dragging everyone through the details, like an Ellis-esque American Psycho, I might just babble my way […]

A Lesson In Projection

A Lesson In Projection

It’s been a while since I posted. The Festival Of Scott began on November 19th and continued for around 4 days, pretty much making me incapable of coherent speech, let alone dispensing worthwhile blog posts. After The Festival Of Scott ended, The Vacation Of Scott’s […]

Digital Video 2 – Week 08

Digital Video 2 – Week 08

Process The ‘rostrum camera’ project was the most testing for me in Digital Video 2. If you’re not familiar with the concept of a rostrum camera, it is used often in documentaries or other films where there may not be access to moving image – […]

Uni Journal – Week 05

Uni Journal – Week 05

There’s nothing like having no repercussions to destroy my blog posts. Yep, another week passes by without any journal entries. Whilst I’m never going to make any brash promises like “it won’t happen again”, I will make sure that I get them out there next […]

Uni Journal – Week 03

Uni Journal – Week 03

Life (work + uni + Concrete) has killed my Uni Journal for Week 3. Which is a shame, because it was looking like I could really overachieve well into Week 5, or even Week 6. So instead of trying to cover everything from a week […]

Daily Telegraph: Is This Journalism?

Daily Telegraph: Is This Journalism?

I always thought it was the duty of a journalist to report on the news, not to invent it. I understand that with the editorial slant that each media organisation puts on their own paper/television channel/radio broadcast, that the details can be spun, muddied, embellished, […]

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 […]

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 […]

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 11

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 11

Work For the final week, I covered a lot more ground than I would have liked to (such is the way with most of my projects this semester). I realised when attempting to use a CG texture to wrap my major elements that it would […]

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 10

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 10

Work I’ve found myself struggling to come to terms with the modelling side of Maya this week. It really seems like we’ve entered a completely new world of CG. Obviously we could have spent a lot more time learning these concepts and in fact I […]

Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Code Development It’s going to be a recurring opening statement for my (late) journal entries this week that I’m officially now behind. A week of being sick, running a music stage at The Finders Keepers markets and an overly ambitious freelance schedule have all ganged […]

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 06

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 06

Thoughts There seems to be two camps on licensed software (well, three if you include those who choose to avoid the license altogether). There are those people who believe that they are getting a high quality product, because they have forked out their hard earned […]

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 04

3D Modelling & Animation – Week 04

Work The transfer from video reference to my five key poses was my focus for this week. Taking what I saw as the primary positions for my animation and wrangling with my biped character, I found pretty quickly I was working from the wrong starting […]

Digital Video – Week 04

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. […]
