Experimental video shorts on color.

Foundation level color experiments.
These new video shorts are the culmination of a project for this Spring’s 2D Foundation level grupetto. This problem has been addressed before by previous classes I have taught, but these experiments featured a new challenge: all sound/music had to be self-generated. There are some stunning sounds.

The images are photographs created by the students for a series of eight booklets they make by hand prior to developing the short (but with that potential in mind). As usual, our focus is on color and documenting it’s many varieties, but these short films help compound the examination and development of narrative in both static and time-based form. Hope you enjoy.

Everyone did a really good job in this project. They’re all unique and I am impressed. I bet it wasn’t easy for you to put them together on this website, Mr. Brandt. So thank you very much!
