Project One: Edited Environments
Rework one (and only one) audiovisual source/video into a new 1-minute piece using only cuts and fades. Edit the video and audio tracks together, in other words, retain the vertical relationships of your source video. You can use any software — premiere, final cut, imovie, avid, etc.
The goal of this project is two-fold:
- get comfortable editing video and working in a non-linear editing program.
- begin to think about the relationships between sound, image, and context. How do your decisions reframe / subvert / abstract the original source material? What is retained from the source video and what is lost?
If you are stuck, try starting a repetitive process and see where that gets you. Take a look at Martin Arnold‘s work.
Upload your projects by midnight on Wednesday (1/25) and send me a link to your video page.
