Video Art Piece

In today’s world, communication is easier than ever. One can share the news with their friends and even the word immediately with a few simple clicks. While this is very helpful, it also comes with consequences, for everything is exploitable. All it takes is one lone wolf to share something malicious and sit back while watching the world burn. Of course, you’d expect people to know truth from fact, but we have become so dependent on social media that we have difficulty knowing true from false. In return, it is easier than ever to trick someone into viewing and sharing false information and watching a social realm collapse.

Production: Video Art Description Paragraph

For my video art piece, I plan on showcasing an amplified visual representation of the side effects of bipolar disorder and giving it a Jekyll and Hyde twist. As of now, I plan on having the viewer see the entire piece through the eyes of the person with the disorder. As they make their way through an area (or possibly showing different moments throughout the day), they will be introduced to everyday situations and view the more appropriate and socially acceptable outcome. After the subject carries out the response, Hyde will take over and show the viewer what the more impulsive and aggressive response would be. As the day goes on the subject will be more likely to take the darker approach; especially at night. At the end of the video, the player will fly up as he starts to be overcome by his darker side; resemble a dark god-like form. He flies up into the sky to a great height but suddenly crashes down as his lighter side starts to regain control.

Animation Critique

Rob McCoy’s walk animation does an great job at displaying body language in the walk as well as timing the poses accordingly. There are just a few things I noticed after scrubbing through a bit. On frame 17 it appears that the left arm eases out a bit too quickly as it swings down to become parallel with the torso. At the same time while approaching frame 26, the right arm appears a bit too stiff while swinging forward. The ease in and ease out with the arms in this section of the animation seems to slightly throw off the balance of the character. There is a little bit of sliding in the feet towards the middle but it is not too noticeable. Other than that this is a extremely well done animation!

Documentary Video

For my documentary video I plan to capture the mysterious life of a creature I was introduced to three years ago; the Tyler Sudyn. For years I’ve tried to get to figure out what the root cause of his unpredictable behavior is, as well as how he survives in the wild. I’ve studied his actions since the day I first encountered him. But now I wish to share my discoveries with the world. My reason for making a documentary on the Tyler Sudyn is to further extend my research and share my findings with the world.
