Merry Christmas everybody!!
I underestimated the difficulty of this one, but it worked out in the end. Video will come after Christmas.
EDIT: Video is up in the results section
350 post-its. 33 colors. 4 glue sticks. 2 weeks.
I am incredibly proud of this piece like crazyinsanejumpingupanddownstoopid proud of this piece.
(The rays are so straight, it makes me want to cry.)
Consider this my vote for a new hevn reboot.
download for bigger size and better quality ^_^
7 days. 3 glue sticks. 13 colors. 485 post-its.
*whispers* and here we see an original post-it project. they're very rare around these parts. let's take a closer look.
4 days. 19 colors (including crane colors). 300 post-its. 143 cranes.
Be sure to check out xobreexo23's original photograph heeeeeeeere
To see this with super dramatic shadows click heeeeeeere
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.
What is this for exactly? It's a list of quotes from the old, old REGULARITY videos (this list is from the first 25 Regularity videos) that I think has the potential to develop into ideas for manifesto pages or for manifesto page titles.
More explained heeeeeere.
NB: This is from the old, old Regularity -- not the one for the TV show. Also, Joe said all these quotes, unless otherwise indicated. Bold words or phrases are my favorites for manifesto page titles/ideas. Timestamps are provided if you want to look back at the context in which quotes were said.
The Regularity (#1) 11-11-2009
See it's a funny thing what happens to time when records get involved. Is it not? (0:23 - 0:27)
** I'm not sure if he's quoting or paraphrasing someone, but I think it's his own thought...?
Our respect of tradition gives power to our rebellion. Our respect of repetition gives power to our deviation. (1:14 - 1:21)
It's a whole different kind of production company. This is how we can connect up. This is how we can relate. This is how we can transcend time and space. (3:03 - 3:11)
It starts now. It’s started. This is just the beginning. (3:34 - 3:42)
The REGULARITY (#2) 11-18-2009
And I’m sure that you would have ideas that I haven’t thought of yet. Those are the ideas that I want. (2:13 – 2:17)
Until then, I will see you again, by heart. (3:06 - 3:12)
The REGULARITY (#3) 11-27-2009
The director does not always know exactly what he’s doing. And I’m sure you have ideas better than what I come up with. That’s the whole principle here. We can do it better together than I could alone. (4:57 – 5:09)
**He references the user ManWithHat when he says this.
The REGULARITY (#4) 12-05-2009
of drumbeats and heartbeats (1:59-2:06)
**Joe talks about ara's record of drumbeats and heartbeats which I think would make a great title for a manifesto page.
We teach our kids to read and write. Why don’t we teach them to shoot and cut? (4:02 – 4:05)
This is I think where a lot of our best stuff is gonna come from: combining unlikely partners. (4:36-4:42)
Sometimes, we’re on beat and sometimes, we’re offbeat. (5:12 – 5:15)
The REGULARITY (#6) 1-21-2009
Are we still recording? (BURNING dAN, 0:01-0:03)
The REGULARITY (#7) 12-28-2009
Maybe a little bit more. Maybe a little bit less. (0:24 – 0:28)
The REGULARITY (#8) 1-05-2010
That’s not me. That’s no one I ever physically met. That’s just people on hitRECord. (2:03 – 2:10)
The REGULARITY (#10) 01-15-2010 (first mentions the idea of a manifesto)
It comes from something before because everything comes from something and leaves as something else: the resources, the result. (4:03 – 4:10)
You don’t have to do the whole thing…It’s daunting if you try to take on this whole big thing, but if you can just do a little part, it’s pretty easy. That’s the beauty of this kind of production company. Lots of people do their little parts. All of sudden, lots of work is getting done. It’s really productive. (9:24 – 10:03)
Transparency is the way. (11:20)
I know it seems strange because it’s not what we’re used to, to take someone else’s work whom you don’t even know, and change it, but that’s what we do here. Trust me, it leads to really great things. (14:15 – 14:30)
The REGULARITY (#12) 02-08-2010
The future is bright. I’m so, so happy. I hope you are too. Thanks. Again, by heart. (3:04-3:12)
The REGULARITY (#18) 03-29-10
It wasn’t about having a nice situation. It was kinda just run ‘n gun and come as you are. (1:15 – 1:21)
The REGULARITY (#19) 04-03-2010 (mentions the idea of re-recs w/o actually saying 're-recs')
I figured I’d do something meaningless…surreal, absurd, or abstract…where meaning comes later. (0:17 – 0:33)
You can still compile an album and that in itself is a RECord. It is a work of art. It’s the art of the DJ, the curator, the mixtape maker. It’s the artform of the 21st century. “Plucking the good stuff out of the super abundance” as the teafaerie likes to call it and making it mean something. (3:32 – 3:55)
The REGULARITY (#24) 05-31-10
It feels real – paying people. (1:24 – 1:27)
The goal here is not exactly to get rich, but like it or not, money is part of the world, and we made some. (2:14 – 2:23)
The REGULARITY (#25) 06-09-10
It’s time to start a collaboration because, obviously, we want to make these things together. (0:24 - 0:29)
Remix, refine, then rejoice in the resplendent! This is my favourite game of all time. (remark from tori in the video's comments)
Let’s make things you can touch with your hands! Put up on a wall! Or wear on your body! These ones and zeroes are nothing, but ones and zeroes! (3:33 – 3:41)
Never be afraid to try…We can try it. That’s the beauty of hitRECord. That original version is still there. It doesn’t hurt anything to try a new revision. Just try it! (4:14 – 4:37)
It’s been a big orgy of gratitude. (4:53 – 4:55)
- new intro and ending with pamagotchi's "Hey...it's Me"
- switched some Telefon and Intimacy clips around
Let me know what you think.
I needed to do something with ppeppina's lovely cover of Nothing Big and this is what I came up with. It's a (post-it, duh) remix of njtam's pencil animation (with some tweaked choreography) starring a noonday and a longray.
AGAIN BY HEART, PEOPLE!
Me: "Hey Dad, wanna see my edit?"
Dad: "If it's that guy singing Yellow Submarine I don't want to watch it."
Words We're Wailing does sound like that song. REEEEEMIX!
- Used moments from the show as cutaways. The video kinda came out as a recap of the SF show.
I had just as much fun editing this show as I did attending it. Good times :D Thoughts?
P.S. It looks better when downloaded :)
