Illustrations are easier to remix for post-it projects, but after seeing bree's photograph on hitRECord's tumblr, I knew I'd kick myself if I at least didn't try to remix it. It was challenging and difficult dealing with lines and shadows that I never had to deal with before.
The cranes were originally going to be drawn on white post-its outlined with different colored sharpies, but the blurriness of the cranes in bree's photo made it difficult to know which line went where. Part of the appeal of bree's photo is the birds' blurriness because it gives the feeling of flight. It also gives the feeling of awe and confusion for the viewer because you're left wondering how the hell she did that. So I nixed the drawn cranes idea and decided to fold the cranes myself. Placement was tricky, but it worked out in the end. I love having the cranes pop off the post-it giving the whole project a 3D feel -- something new.
Anyways, go subscribe to xobreexo23 if you haven't. She's a superb artist and her photographs and animations are phenomenal.
Pretty proud of this project :)
- THIS LOOKS BETTER DOWNLOADED.
- There are credits at the end of this video because this project is doubling as my final project for a film class. We have to make a 3-5 min video (documentary, narrative, experimental, etc.) and the first idea that came to mind was Patterns & Prayers. Before I could go ahead with this project, I had to ask permission from my professor and TA. I explained what hitRECord was, the collaboration process, and how uploading my final project to the site would be easier to credit video, audio, and image resources rather than uploading it to vimeo or YouTube. They OK'd it. There are credits at the end so they understand that none of this footage, images, and audio is mine. I purely edited.
- MattConley is credited as the audio resource because I stripped the audio from his Live Cut (also resourced below).
- I've always loved Joe's poem and this live performance. If you haven't seen his original performance of this poem, you should.
Hope you enjoy <3
I always hesitate when it comes to answering this question. Maybe you can answer it?
Answer the question above with a word, phrase, or a sentence.
The answer could range from "a foot long meatball marinara sub with lettuce and mustard on whole wheat" to "Summer, 1984."
Tell me what you want. I'll write your answer on one of my post-it notes and take another photograph.
