F19-P5 Image Editing (Wirrick-Coad)

Please Enjoy.

So for this project, I was trying to accomplish lots of things. Firstly, of course, is the well-known fact that many of us suffer from anxiety or panic attacks on a daily basis. This can make life extremely difficult and also add more stress to your life, making the anxiety or panic even worse. I wanted to portray the different types of ways people might start having an attack from just a pencil breaking to someone yelling at you for doing something wrong. The second part of the video is trying to give someone who has never had an attack have the feeling of one. I think this is a really good thing for people to see as it will create sympathy for people going through something like this and what to do. Finally the ending. I wanted to show that everything can be calmed down with enough practice and time. Another purpose for this piece for me was to work on my audio and video horror skills. Throughout this term, I have been wanting to work more with unnaturally settings and sounds and get better at using them in different ways. This feels like another perfect setting for that so that’s why the heartbeat sounds and sighing play a very important role within the narrative of the video. This project was a very fun experiment for me. From using different people as actors to using my own voice to create sounds, noises, etc. This has really opened up my eyes to the idea of what we can do with editing software after getting the base image or video from our DSLR’s or other types of media recorders. I obviously still have a lot to learn from Adobe Premiere but I think I did a fine job for my first time. I hope this is informational, unnerving, and fun for you all to watch. Thank you for your time. -Alex


This was a blast to make, but took about 6 hours! I wrote out the outline for it the first day we talked about this project in class and I generally stuck to it. There were a few shots I wanted to get outside, but I was staying home with my dog, so I didn’t. The angle of the video is kind of like a self-care day and I like that it took that direction! I think it’s cozy and relaxing and I’m happy with how it turned out. Originally I was going to take pictures of those favorite foods, but I didn’t have them on hand all at once, so I thought I would have fun and mix it up a little with some minimalistic digital illustrations. It was fun working with shapes, gradients and color schemes with that part. My favorite part was drawing on the chalkboard. I may do something like that again in a future project because it was really fun and a lesson in patience as well. I purposely wanted to mix media in this project, from photo to typography to illustration. I hope that fun, varied mix came across well. I worry it isn’t cohesive but it wasn’t actually supposed to be. I was originally going to get some video for this project, but had so much fun doing the amatuer “stop-motion animation” that I went with that instead. This was a very fun project to do and got me more accustomed to Premiere Pro, which I had been using in Time-based Tools, but wanted to get even more comfortable with. I made a mistake with this though- I thought the maximum was 3 minutes, but it was actually 2, so I apologize for the length, but hopefully it’s enjoyable! Thanks! -Krizia
