Lore Project Trimster 2 Evolution.

Are project was lore, we had to make an interactive book also had to We did stop motion piece for the book  I choose peter pan as my story. I choose these story because the story is very close to my real life because I am a kid that does want to grown up and want to stay a kid forever, his trimester and it was different to what I expected. I went on to PowerPoint to do the interactive book and I used the feature in the setting to do some of the interactive parts for my book and I filmed my stop motion it took me a while to think on how I was going to do this but I had change my idea a few times but the final part work. I learnt how stop-motion work and some history about how stop-motion was made and how it could be used in my book. writing skill and finding my writing style for my book as I had to look at a few other writer to look up to for my book. I used different to skill to help with my interactive book. My story work well with my page design and it work with the interactive book. If I had longer I would experiment with the stop-motion and I would find more I can do with stop-motion sequence, I change my ideas a lot through the trimester that make it a little bit harder for me. Go more in depth with my characters and the story that I made explore my story. I learned a lot from this trimester I learner more as creative I learned how to write and using my own style to write.

 

 

 

The World of Stop Motion

In trimester 2 we are looking at stop motion

If you were wondering how they create movies such as Wallace and Gromit or those funky LEGO shorts online, your search is over. Although creating stop motion animation is not difficult, it is time-consuming and repetitive. As long as you’re patient, this makes a fantastic hobby that may even grow into a career. It is a fun way of learning for everyone.

 

One of the biggest film done in stop motion was Fantastic Mr. Fox is the first stop-motion animation film done for the film corporation, 20th Century Fox. The entire movie was shot at a frame rate of 12 frames per second as opposed to shooting in the usual frame rate of 24 frames per second. 535 puppets were used for the entire film. Approximately 56,000 shots were used to create the film.

Aardman animations

wallace_and_gromit

The Wallace and Gromit films are shot using the stop motion animation technique.  Detailed storyboarding, set and plasticine model construction, the films are shot one frame at a time, moving the models of the characters slightly to give the impression of movement in the final film

Week 2 –  9th January 2016 

Why you have chosen these stories and what they tell you? – I choose these story because the story is very close to my real life because I am a kid that does want to grown up and want to stay a kid forever.

This is my synopsis of my story book.

The story of peter pan is a story about a popular kid in school kid named Ladrus in secondary school and he try to make everyone laugh with he jokes everyone looks up to him as a role model. He with a girlfriend slash side kick named Keisha that he calls her by her nick name Tinkerbell. He doesn’t want to grow up and he want to stay as a kid forever. The kid is really good at English language and like studying poems as he like the rhyming side of the subject. He can’t stay a kid for long. One day the kid get a curse cast on him and he end up in Neverland theme park what possible could go wrong can he save it from evil.

What is the original format?

In Peter Pan, Peter Pan takes Wendy and her siblings to Neverland. There, Peter is plagued by the pirate Hook, who is himself plagued by the crocodile who bit off his hand. In the end, Wendy, Peter, and the Lost Boys escape Hook’s clutches.

Character list: Ladrus Reeves, Keisha (Tinkerbelle),English Teacher, Captain hook, Wendy, Michael and John cause this is set before peter pan going to Neverland I didn’t use all of the characters. Ladrus Reeves, Keisha (Tinkerbelle),English Teacher, Captain hook, Wendy was used in the final project as they stood out to use.

lore-stop-motion-pitch

This is my Pitch as investigated what I will be doing this term. This is a prequel to the adventure of peter pan.

A Dream to Neverland.

(Act I)

“Boom then crash, the shattering of glass I dive to the floor, busting my ass The hell was that Was all that I say Then I see the pool of blood Then I see my mom she’s dead No emotion in the commotion I wasn’t even sad, even when I learned the bullet was meant for my dad Vietnam made pops crazy he was already half-dead So why couldn’t that’d be him that got shot in the head? All the news that fits the print Momma’s death went unreported not a whiff or word or hint They don’t care about us niggers is how my pops explained it But I didn’t know I was a nigga till my dad proclaimed it Six months later my pops is dead too Drug-related shots fired his skin turned cold blue”.

The class was in silent! Ladrus return to his seat.

It was the year 2020 Ladrus he is a black kid 5’8 he was a funny little being. He was a popular kid in secondary school and he tried to make everyone laugh with his jokes. Everyone in the year looks up to him as a role model. He is in the class with his best friend Keisha she a mixed race girl that was 5’0 she was a girly girl that was into watching reality TV, listen to music and going shopping her nickname was Tinkerbell she kept dreaming about a place called Neverland. Keisha showed him a picture of Neverland She told to him “If you don’t want to grow up it your choice”. He made a joke to the class that made everyone laugh as the teacher dismissed the class.

This is my first draft for Act I. I had a talk with my tutor and we mentioned I had to make it original and make it my own so he edited my first draft and he gave me feed back on what to improve.

Week 3 –  16th January 2016 

I did research for a poem to fit in with the story of peter pan and I used This poem from the Netflix series “the get down” about a kid from the Bronx’s that rise to fame in the late 70’s the era for rap and hip hop one of the scene is the main character reading out a poem to his teacher and I going to use it in my poem for my lore project.

adi feingold (2016) The get down poem scene. Available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0j2sQoqkQw (Accessed: 25 January 2017).

Zeke’s Poem (I Am the One)

Boom then crash, the shattering of glass
I dive to the floor, busting my ass
The hell was that
Was all that I say
Then I see the pool of blood
Then I see my mom she’s dead
No emotion in the commotion
I wasn’t even sad, even when I learned the bullet was meant for my dad
Vietnam made pops crazy he was already half-dead
So why couldn’t that’d be him that got shot in the head?
All the news that fits the print
Momma’s death went unreported not a whiff or word or hint
They don’t care about us niggers is how my pops explained it
But I didn’t know I was a nigga till my dad proclaimed it
Six months later my pops is dead too
Drug-related shots fired his skin turned cold blue
On the news that night the President’s wife got a new hair-do
The news guy said “I like it how about you?”
No word about my pops in the Post or on CBS, why was that you ask?
Take a fucking guess
and yeah why is that, that’s what politicians should be asking
But who got time for questions when you all skiing up on Aspen?
Broads get gunshots to the head and all y’all serving us is Asprin
My momma so lovely she’d have made your head spin
Level the playing field and y’all will see who’ll really win
And yeah I got anger
But I don’t let it take me down, my momma taught me better
And she holds me up when I fall down
Rest in peace moms, don’t worry about your son
Someday I’ll make you proud because yeah I am the one.

Week 4 –  23rd  January 2016 

A Dream to Neverland It took me while to come up with the title I had to do a little bit of work to make the title sound right with the book.

Week 5-  30th January 2016 

This is my draft for my act 2

(Act II)

Keisha show the map to Ladrus who look at Keira and said Neverland is a place where you don’t grow up and everything is the best. I can’t wait to go said Ladrus. He ran to the canteen he was late for lunch. He went into the line and he was stop by the head teacher Mr Hook an guy that was very mean but he uses to put everyone in line at the school. “Stop” he shouted as Ladrus stopped and laughed at the head teacher and ran off to the back of the field as the head teacher turned around, he looked at a shiny hook he had on he left hand. Ladrus met Keisha at the end of the field she was with her friends and Ladrus came over eating his Panini while laughing about getting away from the teacher. The head teacher look out at the field and pick up the walky talky and said “This young boy must be killed” and smiled. As Ladrus was walking to class some year 8 came over to him and gave him a high five and he started to talk to his little sister he went into the toilet as he washed he hand he looked down at the chain as it had a piece of glass on a pendant. He started to cry but then the head teacher was calling his name and told him get to lesson.

Walking out the head teacher smiled at Ladrus. Keisha shouted his name as the Mr Hook pushed Ladrus into the cleaning room and said “you might be funny but you’re not smart” Ladrus took Mr hook hat and ran downstairs as the head teacher told the caretakers to “get the boy and take to my Office”. He ran into Keisha and she gave Ladrus the map it was the map of Neverland. He looked at it and grind, At the back of the map it said “Boom then crash, the shattering of glass I dive to the floor, busting my ass” Ladrus was shocked and then the caretaker catch him…

I had to look at act 1 and change around my idea it need more structuring and make it more effective like my final draft of act 1.

This is my draft for my act 3

(Act III)

You could feel the cold air in the head teacher office there was a pet crocodile in a cage at the back off the room. Ladrus was tied to the chair and then Mr Hook came out in a robe and he famous hat with a scar on his face. “You’ve crossed me too many time Ladrus” said Mr Hook. Ladrus tried to get out of the chair “look at the map” cried Ladrus.

Mr Hook stop and stared at the map and put it in bin Ladrus started scream “give it back” “no one can hear you” said Mr Hook. “There no place called Neverland” said Mr Hook “feed him to the crocodile”, From nowhere a sound shouted “no” it was Keisha as she walk into the middle of this finale, she read the poem that Ladrus read out in the English class. Everyone in the room stopped and started to listen to the poem she read every detail in the poem then she picked up the map and showed everyone what it said on the back, Keisha read it out “I wasn’t even sad, even when I learned the bullet was meant for my dad” then Mr hook took Keisha a put a knife to her face and then Ladrus took the map punched Mr Hook and ran with Keisha out the office then the head teacher threw the knife and it was supposed to hit Ladrus but it went through the chest of Keisha. Ladrus stop as Keisha felled to the ground Ladrus ran over as he tried to stop the bleeding Keisha said “The poem was the best thing I have heard all year” Ladrus cried as he said “the knife was meant for me and I’m a kid that doesn’t want to grow up” “I’m sorry Tinkerbell” whispered Ladrus “Neverland is what every you want it to be” said Keisha. She closed her eyes and pointed at the map. He cried for a minute with Keisha in his arms.

(Act IV)

The class was in silent! Ladrus return to his seat with the map. Starring at the shard of glass on his chain as a tear rolled down he eyes. He looked outside the window and a little fairy came down from the sky and flew into the class-room and the Fairy whispered “I will all ways be there for you and there is always a place for you in Neverland”.

I wanted my story to sound like the lemony snicket unfortunate events story as my book is based on and taken some of the ideas and made it my own.

I looked around as I started to look a book designs and page layout as my book is age from 17+ it going to be dark and have a adult feel to it. This is a cover that I have look at and it give me and idea for my peter pan adventure the story of lemony Snicket. I have look at and taken the idea and made it my own.

Title page

picture1

I been working on my title page and this is my first draft and I’m moving a shuffling around so it stand out and it link with the story. I was going to have and old map as my title page but as the map is all the way though my story book I went with a post card as my final title page. I went with a post card cause I want the audience to pick up the book read and look at the front cover and look at it like you would if you picked up a post card from the shops also I went with a old style post card to give it a vintage look and old feeling like the original film, play. I want the audience to think where is Neverland, that why I went with the post card and it has it signed by the main character in the story Wendy darling foreshowing that Wendy darling is a part of this story but the audience won’t get it until they have read the book.

week 7- 20th February

We started looking at the stop motion and the world behind the stop motion. If you were wondering how they create movies such as Wallace and Gromit or those funky LEGO shorts online. Although creating stop motion animation is not difficult, it is time-consuming and repetitive. We learn and we play around with Photoshop and we used the skills and the technique for our Title page.

20170323_132103

These are some of the notes that I wrote whilst we started taking about our stop motion and my story and these notes will help me through out my project I can look back at these notes for help.

week 8-27th February

We are working on our stop-motion part of our project.we started a storyboard for our stop motion.

This is a real life stop motion our tutor show is and it showing you don’t just have to use clay and plasticine to create a stop motion piece.

Picture1.png

This is the page my stop motion is going to be on the scene is when Ladrus my main character go into the head teacher office on the corner of the room there is a crocodile in a cage and it is looking at Ladrus in a bad way so I wanted to change that bit add the crocodile into my 30 sec stop motion piece.

We also have had a little insight on green screen and we played around

20170228_103518

I experimented with plasticine and I made my own crocodile I was going to use it as my stop-motion set. I want now want to a sock puppet for my stop motion piece. I change the idea again and thought to have a scale Model of the head teacher office and do my stop motion on.

week 9-6th March

I have draw out my planned what i am going to do with my stop motion on a paper plan at home i started to make my stop motion set. I am working with different stuff to work on so it going to take while before i start filming my stop motion piece.

I had thought over the weekend as I starting to find what audio I am going to put into my work. I thought how to make my book more interactive so I had a thought over the weekend I was listen to the shape of you by ed sheeren and I thought of an Idea if I add the shape of you music into the end of the story but I would have to try and fit it in to my story that I have at the moment. I was also going to have I idea of me making up a rap to the my story a dream to Neverland.

This is my EP design of the song I want to put into my story.

album cover 1

I have recorded the song on to a voice recorder it took me 3 attempts before the final cut but I want to make my story a little bit happier at the end of the story with a song that represent the song. The lyrics of the song is talking about the main character in the peter adventures Wendy darling and how important she is. I also have been working on my page layout as it need a little bit of a move around.

 

Week 10- 13th March

I’m putting the final audio on for my story I started to put in my audio for my story to make the book more interactive the first one is I recorded some footage form the riots in 1960s and I recorded myself reading the poem from the beginning of the story.

we also started to build our set pieces for our stop motion my idea is i have changed it and i going to building a hooks pirate ship from the original film but put a bit of a twist on to the boat.

This is what i started with was just a plain old box and i thought how i’m going to turn it into a a pirate ship I cut the side off so it was just the box it self i put the side pieces on the front of the box to make the front of the boat. I’m not going with the idea of  a boat because it will take a lot of time to build and film as well as week got a week and bit till deadline so I’m going back basics.

week 11 -20th March

I have started to put my stop motion frames onto premier and I’m going to start editing my pieces together. I also started working on my evaluation and reflecting on what I have done for my past month and bit. I was thinking on what I should do for my stop motion and I have been in trouble for the past week and a bit and I can’t think on what to do.

20170321_103847

It took me around a week and bit to think about a set to design but I thought I’ll back to the begging and go simple with a box with a treasure map in the middle and on the map is message the through out the story. I’m going to use that as my stop-motion part.

20170321_105717

I started to film my stop motion piece  with using canon camera. I went wrong cause were I positioned the camera so I had to start again but this is how I laid out my camera.

20170323_154510

I edited my photo that I made to make it into a stop motion sequence in total I’d taken 130 photos in total it was hard work to do stop-motion but it was challenge it took me a day to edit and mess around with my stop-motion plus I have put the speed up to 6 frames per second as I tried 4 frames but it was too slow I wanted to speed it up.

This the map I made from scratch and it has the message on the back this is a big part of the story and a big part of the stop-motion it send a message to the main character of the story.

24th March project deadline

A dream to neverland interactive book

This is my final interactive book

Music Video Evolution.

I had a lot different ideas and songs before I choose my final idea it was hard to choose a final idea as I had 6 or 5 idea’s before choosing my final idea.  I use the sense of fun, dream and Christmas to make the idea of my music video. I went with a Christmas theme for my music video as we are close to Christmas so I thought It would be relevant but my final will be hard task to accomplish. I filmed a music a video with the music Santa clause is coming to town by Justin Bieber. I filmed the whole thing with the camera q2. I filmed in my bedroom and I filmed in a classroom in Canterbury college, were I filmed most of the scenes. It went with the music and I added YouTube clips into my music video to make my music video more Christmases and some of the scene I couldn’t physically film and it went well with my original plans. These are the different YouTube clips and I have reference you will see in the end music video project:

I choose this song because it close to Christmas and I like the Justin bieber version of a classic. I went with this because it would of been a hard task to complete but I thought I’m going to push through this and I going to make this happen. I needed to add more effects as I just mess around with the editing part and I got a few effect out of it. Challenge myself more acting wise and filming side of it. Should of use my shot list and storyboard as more of a guide and follow it more, Not to film with little bit of equipment and study the ghost effect in more detail when it come to filming cause my ghost effect went wrong cause I didn’t lock the camera so i had to change my original plans. I now know how to use the ghost effect also I now know how to a little bit of editing and how to film a music video and the key feature of a music video and I know how to use premier and add my own music also edit and cut and arrange a 4 minute video. What I got out of this was using the different techniques, camera angels. These make me look at music video and films in more detail and how the behind the scene of a music video works. I got a lot more to learn from the programme premier and different other editing skills.

 

 

Age ratings for music videos

In trimester 1 we are making a music video and I have done some extra research on the age rates of music video and I am linking the information with my music video and wondering what would be my age rate for my music video her the research I have found.

rating-bruno

If it’s not Miley Cyrus licking a sledgehammer, it’s Robin Thicke dancing with naked women or Lily Allen having liposuction and getting dancers to twerk for her. It has sometimes felt as if barely a week goes by without a new pop video cause celebre generating massive online traffic and causing outrage in equal measure. Now the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has said it wants an age-rating system for online videos.

Clear age ratings will be displayed on UK-produced music videos on YouTube and Vevo, as the government seeks to protect children from inappropriate content online.

The new measures, which have been agreed voluntarily by parts of the music industry after a government initiative, will apply to videos that are deemed unsuitable for children and are produced in the UK by artists who are represented by major labels.

The announcement on Tuesday will make permanent a pilot programme launched by the government in October 2014. Vevo and YouTube worked alongside the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) – which represents the recorded music sector in the UK – to create a ratings system so that online videos could be classified in the same way that feature films are.

The scheme was launched amid growing concern about the sexual content of videos, including those by Miley Cyrus and Rihanna. Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines, released in 2013, drew fierce criticism for its apparently lewd lyrics and video featuring naked models dancing. To date, 132 videos have been submitted to the BBFC by labels, with 56 rated as a 12 and 53 classified as 15. Only one has been given an 18 rating – Dizzee Rascal’s Couple of Stacks, which features the rapper brutally murdering people with a knife.

Joanna Shields, minister for internet safety and security, said that films shown in the cinema and music DVDs were age rated to inform the viewer and help parents make informed choices. She welcomed “this voluntary step from industry to bring internet services in line with the offline world”.

“Keeping children safe as they experience and enjoy all the benefits the internet has to offer is a key priority for this government’s one-nation approach to help families across Britain,” said Lady Shields. “We will continue to work with industry to develop ways to help parents to better protect children online from inappropriate music videos with explicit adult or violent content.”

Final Photography’s

Fight the power in the shadow

zcamera-20161012_225918-1

I went with the black power salute and turn in to my own design, I used some of the photography techniques when I took the photo. I made it stand out because of the use of black and white images. I wanted to show that black people stand together but may feel alone especially in the hardest of times and racism’s is never going to die. The Colour palette is black, white and grey through out my photography and a striking image. The people in the photograph look like a silhouette and so the image stand out but also demonstrates how black people are sometimes not seen as much as the majority. However things are changing especially as so many people stand up for black people.

#Blacklivesmatter

This is different from my draft. I went with a black mans hand on the wall, I used the following photography techniques; focusing, depth of field as well as editing. when I took the photo I made it stand out. I put a shadow effect cause it stand out more and inside the frame is darker then the shadow because it show the a avenge black man has to work harder than the avenge white man. Colour palette start light in the middle of the photo is a very dark tone and end light again giving the center a very dark tone.

Evaluation

What did you do?

These are my end product for my Photography’s I use the theme racism’s. They are little bit different then my original ideas.

How did you do it?

I went with the theme racism because it a powerful subject and I thought if I could capture a photo of the theme racism.

 

What worked with the piece?

I work with different idea and the lighting and the way I have taken the photo it work well and I did not link with my first idea but it turn out to be good photo’s.

 

What did not work with the piece?

They are little bit different then my original ideas so they didn’t show a lot about what I was going to show with the Photography’s but I changed it through out the weeks.

 

What would you do differently?

I would of gone in to depth with the photo and I would of experiment with the all of the photograph technique.

 

What did you learn from the activity?

what I got out of this was using the different technique like focusing, depth of field and these make me look at the photograph in more detail.

 

 

Music Video Term 2 Blog

Week 1 – 31st October 2016

Over the holiday I was planning my presentation and how I was going to set it out. It was our first every presentation in front of our tutor. I have done presentation in the past so I thought I was going to fly thought the presentation, but when I was planning there was so many things that I need to work on.

1st November 2016

music-video-pitch

That week we did our presentation in front of a 3 to 4 people. I had a lot different ideas and songs before I choose my final idea it was hard to choose a final idea as I had 6 or 5 idea’s before choosing my final idea. I went with a Christmas theme for my music video as we are close to Christmas so I thought I would be relevant but my final will be hard task to accomplish.

This a synopsis of my music video: It start on street on dark Christmas eve, a boy is all happy excited for Christmas day and go to bed. He wake up but he somehow find him ending up in school that he go to it’s a dream cause the class he end up in is a weird class with strange people that also celebrating Christmas but in a different world there a girl in the class that in love with the boy but she is ugly some of the class mates are really weird and odd and the teacher can’t keep control of the class and the whole class are excited for Christmas, but he just want to get back for Christmas day and open he present. But he doesn’t realizes Santa has visited him.

I choose this song because it close to Christmas and I like the Justin bieber version of the classic music. I went with this because it would of been a hard task to complete but I thought I going to push through this and I going to make this happen.

2nd November 2016

project-one-brief-final

I started to plan how this is going to work I need a plan before I started I had to approve it from my tutor that I can go ahead with this project. I ask my tutor to help on how I’m going to film this and how we going to get this done.

3rd November 2016

music-video-shot-list

I wrote a shot list and what every scene will look like but I will change the shot list through out the week of filming. I made sure I new what I was doing through out the film so I would use my music video shot list as a guide.

Week 2 – 7th November 2016

I was going to undertake my final product cause mine will be hard task to accomplish. I work on my shot list and went in to detail on what scene I would do first. I had to make a plan for the next few week as I am go to start on my filming. I look at different video that could inspire my music video. I started the filming process.

8th November 2016

I started the filming process. I didn’t have the right equipment to film in so the start of my project went a little down hill but whilst I was filming. with the experiment that I had I used different shots, camera angles and I choose the environments I was filming in. It was hard to film just on my phone as I didn’t have a lot of memory and it not the best quality.

Week 3 – 14th November 2016

I am continuing with filming. Our tutor showed us the ghost effect and old fashion effect they use in the movie in the olden days. now a day they uses CGI to use this effect. This is a video of the way we got taught the ghost effect.

I am continuing with filming I was going to use the ghost effect in my music video. this ghost effect was good to learn cause it can help me in the future.

Week 4 – 21st November 2016

I am continuing with filming in the classroom in college as I found the place to start filming the main scenes. I done some of the scene like dancing in the classroom with the some parts of the room I had to cleared out. I thought I might as well get as much filming done before I can start with my ruff cut.

Week 5 – 28th November 2016

I am continuing with filming, I went to a friend house in Margate to film my opening sequences he had a spare room to film in. I was please that I got my first opening done. I am continuing with filming in the classroom in college. We had introduction on how to edit our music video’s. We used a programme called premier. I was filming the extended scene that I might use in my film but I’m not sure yet. I had to retake some of my scene cause I was going to a ghost effect in my music video.

Week 6- 5th December 2016

We had introduction on how to edit our music video. we used a programme called premier. I continued editing our music video.  I am mess around with premier to find out different design that will work with my final production as this is a ruff cut and I got a little bit left to go before I finish my  final music video. I added footage from YouTube to add to my music video and it make the video a more Christmases feel. I had to do pickup for a few of my scenes as a lot of my ghost effect went total wrong.  I have to reedit some of my scene I tried the ghost effect and it didn’t work so I have to re-shoot my work a lot of the scene that I have done I have to redo to make the ghost effect work.

Week 7- 12th December 2016

I started working on my evaluation and reflecting on what I have done for my past month and bit. I continued editing our music video on premier and I needed polished up so it ready to be checked. I went back to premier and had to recut my music video as the ghost effect went wrong and it was sloppy and I need to lock the camera when I do the ghost effect the next time but the tutor said I will probably use green screen. I uploaded my music video to YouTube and email it to my tutor.

Week – 16th December 2016
