Mini-assignment for FACS 2930. Using sketch up, I created this model.
Remix Assignment - Book of Inception
Remix assignment for FACS 2930. I mainly remixed 2 films: Inception and Book of Eli - with some scenes from Wall Street.
The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet!
The article ‘The Web is Dead. Long Live the Internet’ takes on two perspectives regarding the decline on the World Wide Web. At first, I took a look at the title and began to wonder the difference between the ‘internet’ and the ‘web’ as I have always perceived them as the same thing. Upon understanding the two terms, I read on. Chris Anderson expresses his viewpoint on how we are to blame for increasingly critical attachment we have started to create with ‘similar, sleeker services that just work.’ Anderson mentions, “Within five years, Morgan Stanley projects, the number of users accessing the Net from mobile devices will surpass the number who access it from PCs” and people will just choose whatever they feel is more comfortable and simpler for them. I think the web is still widely used for people who have not conformed to the latest gadgets and tools accessible to the public that constantly need to be connected with the internet. Even with a mass migration of people utilizing the internet in different medias, there are still those like myself who choose not to make use of them or are not inclined to always find the latest and greatest out there.
Kamal Singh - Digitolgy
With an enormous desire to be a photographer and videographer myself, it’s simply understood why I have chosen Kamal Singh as my all-time favourite inspirational figure as a visual artist.
Kamal is a unique gentleman with a unique style. Not only does he photograph, he creates video as well. A notable creator of the company Digitology, Kamal takes on various challenges and strives extremely well in his strongest suit: weddings. If there’s a man you want to hire to make your wedding extravaganza an extremely memorable and outstanding event of a lifetime, it’s Kamal Singh. Kamal looks beyond the simple definition of beauty and photographs/films the essence and feeling of the moment.
With his camera at his side almost always, Kamal wishes to capture life as it is. A trip to Punjab definitely brought this statement to life as he captured landmarks and the people of the land. Playing around with the focus and the angle of shots have continuously been the most important issues Kamal faces when photographing/filming. He can simply make anything look picturesque.
His work, at times, makes me look beyond the ideal image of a photograph or part of film. He is constantly innovating his work. Not only do I admire his work, it motivates me to that much better.
This is my first mini-assignment for FACS 2930 in which I had to integrate 3 different images:
