Final Project: Video

For my final video project I would like to do something with downtown Reno, seeing as I am moving away from Reno soon and would like to do one more project involving the city. I have a couple ideas that I haven't solidified yet. But one is to take a collection of videos taken downtown from myself, friends, and youtube to show the different activities that go on in our city.

This includes the various bar crawls that involve thousands of people dressing in costumes and wandering downtown (santa crawl, pirate crawl, zombie crawl etc). As well as wine walks, ARTown, river festival and other events, and turning it into a kind of year round calendar of events showing all seasons.

My other idea would be a time-lapse of the Reno Arch, preferably once the weather gets better and there is more going on. 

I think it would be really cool to see all the different things that go on around and under the arch in one day. Especially once the weather warms up and people are walking around. It would be cool to capture the locals, tourists, and various street performers and homeless going about their day. For this i would need to find a place with a good vantage point of the arch where I would be able to leave the camera for an extended period of time.

Progress 3/6

This week we finalized our animated images to be used on each wall of the screen for each installation. We animated these in final cut using keyframes and wanted to make it look like you were zooming into one section of the image and being zoomed out of a similar matching section of a different image.

Aside from this we're finalizing securing our installation space at the JCSU and have begun construction on the installation itself.

We have each included a sample animation
