Inkblot Tests

These photos are of the inkblots that my group created we made these and were actually quite surprised to see that they all had very similar shapes. Example they all have these two circular shapes moving through them. They also look like they have wings of some kind. These images are in order from smallest to largest they we are going to create a larger amount of these and the difference in size will be allot smaller from one picture to the next. 

These photos were edited by Alfonso and my self we changed the brown colour that they had to a nice black that looks more like ink the also had wrinkles and shadows which we also removed. These are perfect examples of the images we are going for.   

Down By Law


        In our latest assignment we were told to change the mood of a movie trailer ex: Barbie the movie becomes a zombie movie. I choose Down by Law because the mood is pretty dark but yet it still has some comedic moments. The director of this movie is Jim Jarmusch, He is a fantastic director.

       When changing this movie trailer i wanted to eliminate the comedic part of the movie and make it more of a dark movie. I choose to use the parts of the movie that are darker such as the fight scene and the escape scene.

       When choosing the music i chose a Tom Waits song called "Hell Broke Luce" because it is pretty descriptive of the trailer. It is pretty dark but it is very load and powerful which is what i am going for in the trailer.

        In the future i would like to change the song to something more dark and less of the same vibe from the original trailer. Also i would like to change the ending cause i feel that i have given to much of the story away. I think i could shorten some of the scenes because i feel that people can make the connection from one scene to the next without showing the whole scene.

        In conclusion I think that the trailer can be fixed and could be much better and will be resubmitted. I still like the mood was slightly changed but can be more obvious when i re do it. 

Are ideas for the Palladio project

        In Cyber Arts we have a project to create a video that will go along with a piece of classical music called Palladio. We as a group thought that it would be pretty cool to make ours like a visualizer. These are a few ideas of things that we would like to use in a video.

The image above is a still of a fractal.A fractal is a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. We liked the look of fractals and it reminded us of life and how things grow decay and a new thing is born. And that is part of our concept evolution and life.

The image above is a photo of a rorschach inkblot test this image is to test the psychological mind of a person usually used by a psychologist. We really liked the look of these images and thought about animating them. We would create then photograph at least one hundred of these and the animate them. We would start with small ones then medium then large so that it looks like they are evolving.
