Brandon Bell - "Spotlight"

tools: canon optura100mc mini dv, tripod, pen light, adobe premiere+after effects, dell inspiron8000/win xp

Music: Vladislav Delay

Description: After abandoning three or four previous concepts for a variety of annoying reasons, I set up a tripod on my bathroom sink and shot the whole thing in pitch black with a tiny pen light for a light source. After Effects provided the necessary filters and color controls to get the right negative-ish aesthetic. (Pulling it off as a mostly black video seemed too obvious & easy.)

Tiara Delgado - Untitled


Jenny Woo - "I See You"

Description: A beutifully rendered animation sequence.


Shannon Carpenter - "Spotlight"


Candace Feit - "Picking Up the Bunny"


Ze Frank - "Spotlight"
