Due to scheduling craziness, I was unable to make the rescheduled final review of everyone’s videos. (Trying to catch-up via blog). Also, having to go home pack and make a train meant that I missed the final mad hours of editing between David and Ziv. We’d planning it fairly well, just in terms of large components- I’d done the edits and footage assembly on lunch, the intro and titles on dinner- but, admittedly, I just implicitly structured my materials for a mixed-office production set-up (anticipating hand-off) without telling everyone to handle their files the same way. Apparently, reworking breakfast was a bit hairy at the last minute; some piece that should’ve been placed as sequences in a master were instead render out and put into a single sequence (i.e. uneditable). Anyways, the video is below. It was an interesting one-off exercise (my heart still belongs to after-effects instead of premier, especially in terms of layer interaction, file linking, and animation). Since I work more on systems mapping than isolated objects, the aesthetic exercise don’t align with my practice. But, it was a good reminder, as all minimalism is, of how much effort the artificially isolated object takes. No more empty white backgrounds… way too photographically difficult to get correct.
