TAdams P5 Image Editing

By: Tristan Adams

I did my best to include details of 5 of the same object in my frames, five tables, support beams, steps, cars, sections etc. , that I took photos of, and since this was more of a fancy slide show I wanted to make it an old style to it while adding effects to make it look like old slides. For the music I just wanted very calm record formatted music to keep the old style theme with all the audio. Of course I couldn’t show my entire route back to my home through the pictures but I did what I needed to to get the point across. Getting the image on the high way was just recording the whole drive and cropping the image as best as I could so I didn’t risk a crash. Other than that I didn’t actually go to sleep in the final image at five in the afternoon that was really the only way I could think of ending the video. It wasn’t a hard assignment through the work it was more difficult figuring out what I wanted since I still lack going outside in recent time.

Also while looking for the music I started out in free sound and just wanted to give this link because this is a really nice song and wanted to share it.

Project 5, by Jeremy Roman

Grief, as it turns out, is a five letter word. It’s kind of funny how that worked out, seeing how the theme of the project was fives. Grief is something that is not linear. In other words, grief just hits when you least expect it. A certain phrase that reminds you of them. A song, a smell, a color, anything can bring you back to that moment of pain, and the weight of that loss. There are also five stages of grief. In order, they are: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

That’s not to suggest they come in that order specifically, or any order at all, they just come when it’s time. Anger is the easiest to spot. I was angry back in 2019 with the captain of my ship when, while on deployment, my grandparents passed away 6 weeks apart and I couldn’t go home because of where we were in the world. Denial can often look like “This can’t be happening!” and often goes hand-in-hand with bargaining (“Please, just take me instead!”). For me, following quickly after anger, was depression.

I couldn’t believe that, of all people that this could possibly happen to, it happened to me. Denial. Why couldn’t this happen to someone else that I didn’t know? Why, if it had to happen to me, couldn’t I at least be allowed to go home and say goodbye? Bargaining. What kind of captain doesn’t even have the guts to tell his sailor that he can’t have his emergency leave approved to his face? Anger. Then comes the depression. For me, my depression at the time took the shape of going through the motions and making “too soon” jokes so that I didn’t have the time to sit and think. Which, as it turns out, is not the healthy way of dealing with things.

Acceptance was hard for me. It took me a while to get there. I got out of the Navy in 2020 (Talk about good timing), and it’s only been within the past two years or so that I’ve really come to accept what happened, that they’re gone, and that it’s okay. Talking about it helps. What helped me more, however, was making things. Exploring grief through making art, writing about it, making short films about it, etc. Just don’t keep it inside.

Expressing yourself through creativity helps a ton, even if no one but you sees it. The point isn’t necessarily to show everyone what you’re feeling, but to capture that feeling in an artistic medium. Also know that, while it can seem all encompassing and everlasting in the moment, the grief will fade with time. It might never stop hurting fully, but at the very least, it becomes manageable.

The best way that I’ve learned to deal with loss in life is to talk about your loved ones. Tell stories about them, share what they taught you with others. That way, at the very least, some part of them will live on.

P5 – MORENA in 5


Here are 5 of my favorite looks! Using my set up at home that I acquired through my husband’s apologies, I was able to shoot these under a lighting set up and a mirrorless camera. Drag is the biggest part of my life right now and I totally did not pick these because I already have them. Drag gave me friends and connections that opened up different possibilities not just in the performance aspect but also with my event photography, producing and hosting career.

I shot the videos using Canon R6 and two studio lights then edited the clips through Adobe Premiere where I used a couple of transitions and cropping. I am still learning how to color grade. For the blue look, I actually tried shooting that in C-log which apparently is the best way to shoot for color grading. And for the photos, most of them are just screenshots from the videos. i shot in 4K, did a couple of poses so I could pause and take a screenshot with little to zero motion blur. Then I used Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to showcase the looks better and to make the necessary adjustments to make me look prettier because there are things you just can’t hide in 4K and I’m definitely not talking about my pores. If you are interested in drag feel free to check my instagram @themorenaqueen.

go count.

I wanted to use this video assignment as an excuse to work with different types of light-end visual effects and transitions that I had picked up from another class that I’m currently taking. There were a few rough moments, but when dealing with most of the issues that came into play, I was able to discover a work-around. In addition, I was often finding myself getting lost in options and possibilities. While this is not a bad problem to have, it is one that could have drowned me if I had let it. I needed to learn how to relax on the controlling aspect and let myself see the video in its entirety and not obsessively focus on its little pieces. So this was also a good exercise in learning how to make fast decisions and manage production time.

I enjoyed the fact that this made me want to go further in different areas of editing and video production. It was something that I did a bit of in high school, and I had forgotten how much passion I held for it. It’s been a beautiful thing to come back to, and I have a lot to learn. I’m looking forward to the work.

This little guy was primarily done in Premiere. It took me a little bit to get everything just right, tweaking all what needed to be tweaked. Then, there it was. My beautiful list of the Top 5 weddings to ever occur. “Mwah,” I say, “Mwah!” One of the idea eggs that lay incubating in my brain cracked during one of my morning shifts as a janitor. I stopped everything I was doing, shot my index finger straight up in the air, and went, “Eureka! It’s perfect! The top 5 weddings!” My boss, however, was furious. “What’s going on with the THIRD toilet in the SECOND women’s bathroom?! Didn’t I ask you to clean it? What’s all this ‘eureka’ gobbledygook?! Shut up, ah? Jeez, you got the personality of a dead moth.” My boss is actually the infamous American comedian and actor Don Rickles, hence the particularly harsh demeanor (I didn’t take it too personally.) I aimed for this project, along with my last project, along with just about everything else I’ve worked on, to be at least somewhat surreal. Honestly, I love toying with people’s heads. I’m typically uninterested in things that are predictable. If there’s anyone out there who watched this video that knew exactly what was going to happen as it happened, let’s be friends for the rest of our lives.

Hello Class! By Esteban W.

Hello, I’m Esteban, and I’m thrilled to introduce myself as a musician and visual artist embarking on my second term at LCC. Music is my first love, and I’ve been fortunate to explore it through various instruments and digital tools. My primary platform for music creation is Ableton Live, where I merge technology with my creativity to craft unique sonic experiences.

As a multi-instrumentalist, I’ve delved into the intricacies of guitar, bass, piano, keyboards, and more. Each instrument has granted me a different perspective on music, allowing me to infuse diverse elements into my compositions. My trusty microphone is my constant companion, capturing the sounds that resonate with me in the world around us. These field recordings often find their way into my music, adding a layer of authenticity and emotion to my work.

Beyond music, I’m equally passionate about visual art. I see it as another form of creative expression, and it complements my musical endeavors beautifully. Through visual art, I can explore a different dimension of creativity, experimenting with colors, shapes, and textures. It’s a delightful journey that allows me to tell stories, convey emotions, and connect with people on a profound level. I cant wait to learn as many skills as I can to boost my creative process and be able to share with you all!

However, I’m currently on the mend from knee surgery I underwent last Wednesday, which has temporarily slowed me down. But I believe that even in moments of physical challenge, our creative spirits can soar. This setback has given me time to reflect, plan, and brainstorm new artistic projects that I can’t wait to share with you all.

Collaboration and learning from others are essential aspects of my artistic journey. I look forward to working with my peers, sharing ideas, and gaining fresh perspectives. Together, I am hoping we can create a thriving creative environment that nurtures innovation and artistic excellence.

P6: Final Project

By Kahu Ekalani 

 When I started this project I knew I didn’t want to spend too much time on a script and storyboard because one of my favorite things to do is drive around and see what I can find and film to throw together. It’s a personal challenge I like to give myself, but it doesn’t mean that not a lot of time and effort went into this project, it was very time consuming.

Shooting and editing the surfing scenes was my favorite part of this project. My least favorite part was not having a gimbal to use while filming. Something I wanted to do that I didn’t get the chance to was film one more day of footage which I had planned to do around a campfire, I also planned to capture some footage of cows but that didn’t work out either. During the editing process I tried to keep an appropriate pacing and match alike actions to create continuity. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out given the materials, staff, and time frame I had to produce it. A piece of advice I’d give someone just starting this project would be to schedule as much time as you can to get as much diverse footage as possible.

P6: Final project

I chose the topic related to beauty because one of my dream when I was a kid is becoming a Beauty Blogger/ YouTuber. This is the chance for me to look at my childhood dream again after a long time. “MANI 101: How to give someone a manicure!” is the idea came up with on my mind first because I feel the manicure in the US is kind of expensive compare the Asia area, that’s why if people know how to do a basic manicure for their lovers, it will less cost. This is the video about “How to” so it will be directed towards tutorial. Whether you’re practicing for your new salon business or just having a sleepover, knowing how to give someone else a manicure can help them feel relaxed and beautiful and help you hone a skill. Put on some music, grab your nail kit, and let’s get started.

MUL101 Final Project P6 – Tristan Daniluk

Production started late due to inclement weather traveling to the destination. With time constraints, production became underway when the weather was nice.

I made various film clips for what he wanted to achieve. As in the production of movies, generally there are retakes. 

I felt the experience was exhilarating! Some of the retakes took bravery. For example, highway 58 is one or two lanes traveling in one direction. I drove in two preferred areas and had to make a U-turn to go back to the starting point. Making a U-turn was in a precarious area near a curve while putting safety first simultaneously. I can be a daring person and took upon the challenge and operated smoothly. 

Other than that, there were more retakes. Ideas were depicted and produced as well as ideas removed. For example, the film starts with a rising sun before the road trip. What about what takes place before you enter the car seat? Recording scenes of a shower sound and cereal dropping in a breakfast bowl were deleted. It’s more of a road trip and those sounds, for example, were not necessary for the plot.

I cannot wait to see the final product of the road trip! I took the time to strategize and achieve what he desired to complete a masterpiece of his first production of this kind. I had fun creating it with my mom (Stacey). My Dad helped with one scene.
