Visiting Ian Carr's Shares (account name: redlightbulb)
A Film Every 1.5 Weeks!?!? That's What My Grade is Based on!?!?!

Media Sketchbook

Warning. The following is not for the faint of heart. Over the course of my past semester I was required to make a short film once every one and a half weeks, that's ten short films in total. While their ability to win awards varries (I've made more than one of them in less than six hours) I feel that many of them are worthy of my felling proud. I invite you to watch them, preferably starting at the bottom and working your way up (so you can see how much better my later works were) and share your thoughts.

Assignment #1: The first exercise is a short without edits (all one single Shot) that reflects something of how you see the world, and/or how the world sees you.

Assignment #2: Create a video whose content is based purely on the structure of the sounds, images, and editing. Find a structure that formals rhythm of the edits and sounds and the composition of the shots.

Assignment #3: Create a portrait of a person at least ten years older than you.

Assignment #4: Recreate an autobiographical vignette without using dialogue, narration, camera movements or zooms.

Assignment #5: Shoot and edit a dream sequence.

Assignment #6: Shoot a landscape or portrait of a place that tells us something about how you feel about that location.

Assignment #7: Using the camera as an extension of your eyes, create a surveillance video that plays with the issues of seeing as knowing, privacy, control, paranoia and technology.

Assignment #8: Use the camera to keep a diary of an ordinary day of your life.

Assignment #9: Repeat any one of the previous assignments, either with a different subject matter, or refining, improving on, and adding additional materials to the earlier version. This piece ought to be between three and five minutes in length.

Enjoyed your class projects! My favorites are Things My Mother Taught Me (loved the narration) and the alarm clock story. Loved the annoying alarm clock and your facial expressions and the stages of getting up.
