Assigment: Construct the ugliest or prettiest woman or man from footage material in Photoshop. Discuss the concept of beauty and ugliness and what is needed to archief that in a designed person. Use your collage, and copy her/him by hand with pencil on paper, by looking, not by tracing. Add two new perspectives. (in total: front, half and 1/4) Now you are allowed to trace. Scan pencil drawings and build up your character, all three perspectives, on different layers in Illustrator. Every 'bone' should be on a different layer. 4) Print your character, cut out the bones and with the help af a tripod, camera, needles and a blue piece of paper, and make the character dance for 30 seconds using stop motion animation technique. Photograph yourself, copying the animated dancing character. This frame by frame filming is called Pixelation. Key yourself into the film, so you are dancing synchronised with your character.
Add music you make in Garage band.

Assignment: Make a concept that is so strong it indicates the period of a band. Style the band through actual styling or artificially using digital techniques. Note the differences that you have to make in each item. Cover should be strong as a i-tunes tumbnail as well as a poster.

Our task was to take the 9 squares as inspiration for a 30-second-film. I decided to focus on the things themselves. Because they are all personal things, I want to give the video an emotional touch. I thought it would be a good idea to make an ad for a shop that sells accessoires where you can't just see, but hear, feel and love the things.
