On Tuesday in week 6, we had just finally filmed all of our footage and were ready to start editing and compositing our footage.
The other members of my team did most of the editing, by combining and cutting down all of the scenes we took, while also trying to tie our footage in with the audio of the Star Wars cantina scene.
We didn’t have time to add chroma key effects to our video. So when it was near the end of class, my teammates and I decided that we would each work on 15 seconds of our footage at home.
On Friday, we were lectured about typeface, and how different types of font can help set style and/or mood.
We also first learned about our next assignment, where the theme was photo manipulation. This was another assignment where we had to choose between 3 things: do a self-portrait poster that has other images and text that show the ideas and reflections of the person, create a magazine spread that shows a photo-manipulated and surreal landscape, or make a typographic poster using one word and a theme. I am still thinking about which one to do, but I’m leaning on either the magazine spread or the typographic poster.
The first task that we did was to take two images and write down the titles of the image on top of them, and we had to figure out what kind of typeface would fit the images.
I think that the composition of the text with this background is alright because the coluor and sans-self typeface of the text has a very warm and autumn-ish look and feeling to it. I also like the placement of the words where they’re all connected with “in.”
I really like this composition in this image, because the typeface looks very royal and grand, and the position of the letters look nearly symmetrical.
The second task was to look up a random quote, and rewrite it using different and mood-provoking typefaces.I decided to make two versions of the quote.
I like the first version more, because the two fonts blend together better and have a very interesting look to them.
