IMA-Sp16-Grey,Brady-P6 Final Project.

It’s came to that time of the term were we give are last piece of work. I wish I could continue on with the making of videos with my drone, because this class gave me a great reason to use it for video making. I never really used it for actual projects, but as for just a fun hobby. I loved all the chances I got use it for school on the last two projects. After taking this class, I feel the motivation from what I have learned not to stop, but to continue in using the drone to create better angles and views for future class video work, or even maybe as career.

I really think editing the footage from what I have done was the fun part. Seeing it on a phone then putting it on a larger screen, and editing it seemed to be the most amazing part for me. With the footage from the fish-eye type lens from the gopro, and the 2-axis gimbal really did all the work. The gimbal stabilized the footage, while me the crazy flyer could fly the drone,

This last project(5) took a great time in editing. After getting the video timed just right with the music. I couldn’t let the video end short, so I thought for the final project that I would just continue to shoot at the same time of day in order to get that sense of evening feel for the video. I continued with more video shots at different locations, to make it an extended length film. In the editing process, I did have pretty good idea on the changes I wanted to do from the last one. I made sure that all the scenes blended together, and didn’t just change from evening, to mid-daylight. I wanted to do crazy angles with drone, but I’m still kind of a beginner with it, I wish I could have just bit my tong and went for it to get low ground flying shots. Maybe in the future once I’m more capable of maneuvering it. It will happen!

Thank you guys for watching, and I hope you all enjoy it.

Professional Practice X4 – Nitro Circus

FullSizeRender

May 7th, 2016- Autzen Stadium @bradyygreyy

Nitro Circus- 05-07-2016

What Was The Event?

On May 7th, 2016 I had the chance to go to a Nitro Circus event at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. This event was the perfect opportunity for me to do this project and also to have the chance to get to watch professional FMX,   Skateboarding, and even a guy nicknamed “Wheelz” in his wheel chair do crazy, and dangerous stunts. Hopefully to give you guys a better idea of what nitro circus is, I’m going to try and explain it in a way of witch I experienced it. What was interesting to me is that this event in Eugene was one of their largest stops on their North American tour. Half of Autzen stadium was filled with 17,000 people. Waiting for these crazy athletes too perform crazy unseen stunts. I was pretty excited, and I honestly could not wait any longer for it to start.

I was also excited to see “Aaron” as known as “Wheelz”, and “Street Bike Tommy” because they were really the only original nitro circus crewmembers that I recognized from the nitro videos and movies that I have watched/seen. “Wheelz” is a friend of Travis Pastrana that does crazy unknown stunts with his wheelchair. “Wheelz” is the first guy to turn his disability (Spina Bithia) into an ability that will pioneer an all-new extreme sport. Mostly everyone here was new to the freestyle crew for the nitro team. They were all really good and did some amazing stunts, but it would have been cooler if all the original guys were their. The FMX riders did all the known tricks or freestyle such as the “superman”, the “whip”, and the “backflip”. It was also fun to see the skateboarders and BMX guys do their stunts and tricks, street bike tommy (the speaker) did name all the tricks, but when having too much fun, I honestly forgot them all.

The speaker of Nitro Circus (Street Bike Tommy as they call him) was great as well. He really kept the crowd engaged to what was going on, and to what they were doing. He spoke with enthusiasm, and excitement. Letting everyone know a little known information on how they come up with the stunt, as well the effects of it if they did it wrong. He really brought the crowd to an overall involvement. For one stunt he asked for thee Volunteers, two of them would ride with “Beau Bamburg” a local FMX rider from Beaverton, Oregon to do a backflip with him and the two volunteers on the back. The good news is that the stunt overall turned out to be successful, as the volunteers when for it. Although street bike Tommy made them sine wavers as well as shows them pervious footage fatal events that happened when this stunt was performed in the past. As for the last volunteer, he as well did a backflip, but on a bmx bike. I can’t remember the bmx, freestyle riders name all that great, but all in all this stunt turned out the same. Thankfully know one was hurt in either one of them. The three brave souls that they picked did get to keep the FMX gear that was provided for their safety as an award for entraining the crowd.

The overall presentation seemed to be great to see. For people that are into this type of media/professional practice like me, it was a overall fun, and great time. I thought this would the overall a great way in showing a professional practice that in someway showed activity towards media. Too bad they wouldn’t let me fly my drone for a video.

Soaring Over Oregon Park’s

*Watch In HD For Better Image Quality*

Soaring Over Oregon-

What does 5 mean? To answer this question myself, it could mean many different things. A lot of different types of ways to express this ran through my mind, I had no idea what I was going to do. With the help of my friends I decided to use my drone. I really haven’t filmed with it, but used it has a FPV (First Person View) with my gopro. It’s funny because I have two different types of camera mounts for it. Ones a “fixed” mount, and one is “2-axis Gimbal” mount. Not ever using the gimbal mount before, I decided that I would use it for this project.

 

Filming:

Doing the film part of this video wasn’t too bad. Didn’t really know what I was going to film with the drone, but all in all it worked out. Luckily I was using the “gopro app” on my phone, I was able to record and stop recording while the gopro was in the air. The gimbal really helped out for keeping the camera sturdy while flying. Because to be honest I’m still a beginner and I did crash it the first time I flew it. So I believe I succeeded since I flew over water haha.

 

Music:

I took note in this class that choosing the music first really helps you while making videos. I decided to go with “Soarin’ – By: Jerry Goldsmith, because viewing the clips that I have shot reminded me of the ride in Disney’s “California Adventure-Soaring over California”. I tired to make the clips resemble it from my experience from the ride, but in a different way of the 5th dimension.

 

Editing:

Editing was pretty good. I like editing videos for fun, and this project was fun for me. Even though I had no idea of what I was going to do to resemble the “5th Dimension”, but I think it worked out along with the process of viewing the videos. I used iMovie as my tool for all my editing along with titles, filers, and transitions. This project took me two nights to edit.

 

Filming Equipment:

For the most part of this project, the equipment involved a 350-size drone caring my gopro controlled by the transmitter. My phone also controlled the drone. I believe that the last recorded flight I have in my phone was 368ft from ground to sky. The rest of the making of this video contained a place to fly, and a computer with editing tools.

 

Over All Thoughts On P5 Image Editing:

I really enjoyed this project. It honestly took me a while to come up with something to resemble 5, but it was also helpful to have friends along to help me out with the ideas. Especially if you use what you like to do for fun as a tool to use for a project. Most of all, I liked doing this for fellow class-mates to view, and for my YouTube channel so people can get similar ideas.. Hope you all liked it!

Alien Escape Mission – Intro

 

I had a fun time with this project overall. I really haven’t edited audio or done anything with audio yet, except for when making videos with final cut, and adjusting the sound. With project P4 audio, I went over to a friend’s house and we decided to play around with the sound effects from the program called “garageband” .We found some really cool “Sci-Fi” and “Alien” Loops, and started dropping them into the are story timeline. Shortly after a few sound effect clips we decided to run with it as being an “Alien Type” escape mission. We began writing script lines that went with, and sounded right, towards what kind of sound effects we had already played out. I think it turned out pretty good for being my first time really using the garageband app of my laptop. I really only ran into difficulty’s with adjusting the sound waves, and volume level so it faded in and out correctly. Here are the sources/equipment I have used for this project:

-Garageband.

-Blue “SnowBall” Microphone.

I believe these tools were great for a beginner such as myself. I really liked using the snowball microphone. I did a test comparison towards my laptop microphone, and its by far better. Garageband was also great tool for me, still kind of learning it, but getting the hang of it. Thanks to this project, it’s taught me more with using this software. I can’t wait to use this equipment in future projects.

I find myself a lot on this blog. I like the fact that you can go to this blog and search for any review or video on car’s you want to know about. This is a great site for information,such as their test drive’s, rating’s, and comfort. Many of the blogger’s on this site like to review the comfort of the vehicle. For example, the great part of AutoBlog is that you are able to get 360′ degree view of the interior, and view other people’s review’s/comments on any type of vehicle you desire. This is just a few of many more resourses this blog site has to offer for the average car guy or girl. Autoblog to me looks very well put togther. It seem’s to me that it is a porfessional grade blog site. Many people/bloggers have key factor’s that make this blog run everyday. This lead’s me to believe that this blog is produced by many author’s/ car people ,on this blog. Their are many other auto blog’s out there, but this one is by far my favorite one.

200 Or More Interesting WORDS Of Me_

200 WORDS  Or More Of Me

Who Am I?

Hi Everyone!

If you all don’t know, my name is Brady, and welcome to my blog.I like coffee, especially iced coffee. Dutch Bros is my favorite when it comes to going out to get coffee. I’m laid back and easy going, and always up to trying new things!
1149165_4743023512855_859483400_o

What I Like To Do:

I really like the outdoors. I mostly like to ride motorcycles, quads, as well as mountain bikes. I grew up around cars, and motorcycles my whole life. After awhile it becomes a hobby that is addicting haha.

IMG_1533What I’d Like To Do:

I really like working with computers, and video. It all started in a video production class back when I was in high school. It progressed with inspiration from taking that class, and to watching videos on YouTube. One interesting fact about me is that I like to were my gopro everywhere I ride. You never know what’s going to happen. As well you might get a good short YouTube video! IMG_1521One of my other hobbies is flying drones! I like doing that on the side for fun, and to also take video/photos. I’m still trying to get the hang of flying, and to hopefully get better at it. I like coffee, especially iced coffee. Dutch Bros is my favorite when it comes to going out to get coffee. I’m laid back and easy going, and always up to trying new things!

After Finishing Media Arts Program:

After I’m finished, I would like like a career in video editing or web design. Either of them would fasntastic to work in. I really enjoy time behind the camera and for the most part making awesome media! Looking foward to a awesome career.
