How do we convey feeling?

For this six weeks, we’ll be primarily using Photoshop. In the new version of Photoshop CS6, Video has been added to its capabilities (albeit it was already available in previous versions if you had the extended     nversion). They also made a lot of upgrades to what you can do with video in PS. Photoshop, most of the time, however is not used for video, and what you can do with it has a very broad range of applications.

Avant Garde

An avant garde film may not fulfill all of the below, but these are a few of the tendencies.

  • Created by one person or a small group of people
  • Production members do not abide by traditional roles
  • Draws attention to the process used
  • Story is presented in a non-linear manner
  • Does not abide by mainstream trends
  • Message is often unclear

Famous artists including Man Ray, Salvador Dali, & Marcel Duchamp, were involved in avant garde film. In addition to Expressionism, Dada, Cubism, and Surrealism all influenced avant garde film.

Jump Cuts and Slow Motion were once limited to avant garde film making.
