As always, things are heating up in Intermedia II as we approach the end of a fantastic (and fantastically busy) year. The students recently completed their first major assignment, a short animation on a subject of their choice. (We did some group animations during the Fall semester, and had a wonderfully inspiring visit from the lovely Joe King, tutor in animation at the Royal College of Art.) As a taster, here’s two of the most successful pieces. You’ll have to join us for our vernissage at O Patro Vys on Sunday April 27th at 7pm to see more.
This year in COMS374, the students were asked to use Korsakow in combination with Vine (a free app for creating very short videos, available for iPhone and Android). The goal was to build poetic, observational films foregrounding sensory experiences. Here are three of the most successful films (click on the screengrabs for links to the students’ films, along with their notes on process – also an important part of the assignment). Guidelines right here.
Anna Giacobbe’s Lingering
Marco Paradiso’s Reverie
Nadine Beauchamp’s Juice
