In Class Prep Video for Digital Workshop

This is a quick video we made in class in preparation for our Digital Workshop. It is made in Photoshop by taking a picture of ourselves and then using the paint brush tool (and other tools) to draw over the photo to transform the picture.

Project 1 [[Digital Collage]]

col┬Ělage n.
     a. An artistic composition of materials and objects pasted over a surface, often with      unifying lines and color.
     b. A work, such as a literary piece, composed of both borrowed and original material.
2. The art of creating such compositions.
3. An assemblage of diverse elements: a collage of conflicting memories.

For the first project I created a digital collage out of multiple images. I created a landscape background and then a 'creature' with an owl's body and a dog's head. In Photoshop I altered colors and the size of objects. After creating the image, I made an animation in Photoshop where the Creature is moving through the landscape.

Here are Some Images From my Collage:::

Recently Noticed in European Media!

I recently studied abroad in Italy and noticed a lack of mass media throughout Europe. There are no billboards when you drive along the highways. Ads are simple and straight to the point, as well as tv commercials. They are more honest with you. This is also true with the news... The only marketing you see is usually in the store windows, along with train stations, etc.

Mass media is EVERYWHERE in the United States. Publications we have in the U.S. can also be found in Europe, along with their own publications. Advertisements in Europe are also more provocative. They are a little more revealing and open, simply due to culture. If they want you to notice something... they will achieve that.
