12 Months and Counting – Final

 

Above is the final version of the documentary. I cut out some of the failed first concept footage. I also removed all the audio from the rough cut and put a copyright free song throughout the whole video. For the title/credit cards I used the front/back pages of the calendar. John was kind enough to record some of the work he did for the layout, so I sped that up and put it in the documentary. Danny provides a voiceover for the photoshoot portion and Zach talks about the planning and design of the calendar in the second half.

Calendar Rough Draft

 

This week our group implemented our plan B and continued shooting at various workspaces. The majority of were done 3/28 & 3/29. Above is a rough cut for the documentary. I plan to add additional interview footage of team members. I’ll ask them what they are working on and show their progress as we wrap up on the project.

12 Months and Counting: Concept Change

 

This week was rather productive for our group. We location scouted Thursday, had a photoshoot Saturday, and had a meeting that determined the future of our concept Tuesday. I documented our photoshoot Saturday. However we did run into some problems. We couldn’t get the location we initially wanted due to the Saturday morning art classes. A different model cancelled on us that day. Due to that and future complications we may have with securing locations and models, we decided it would be best if we did a series of photos capturing a work area representing each major, in a satirical way.

This week I’m contributing to the group by pitching concepts for on location shoots. Below are concepts for 4 of the 7 on location shoots.

 

 

Photography Concept

Photography Concept 2

The concept is that the model would have a photoshoot outside, and we would also capture the lighting equipment and photographer in the picture.

Art History Concept

Art History Concept

The idea is maybe we photograph the model posing in several different ways. And present the final image as a 4 panel image with the model shown in 4 different artistic styles.

Fashion Concept

Fashion Concept

The concept is that the model would be wearing something over the top outside, as if they wear it casually. We could even have them walking on some sort of walkway/carpet.

Animation Concept

Animation Concept 2

The concept is that the model will be working in the lab for hours, shown in 4 panels. The image above gives an idea of the last 2 panels. The desk a mess, post it notes/papers everywhere.

CCAD Calendar 2018

My responsibility in the team is to create the documentary. I will also assist Brandon and Danny with shooting when necessary. Right now myself, along with everyone else in the team is compelling reference images for concepts of what we want the photographs for each major to be. For more information, check out our group blog.
