Video Installation Draft Edit:

I made the videos colour have that cinematic look by changing the colour correction, contrast and three way colour in the adobe premiere. I want it to have that professional cinematic effect and have that darkish mood into it by increasing the contrast. Changing the colours made creates stronger tension of the slow-motion effect and how the story unfolds. The mood to it suits with the story as the story is about regrets, wrong decisions and violence.

As you can see the original video and the edited version is completely different from each other. The edited looks more cinematic which i wanted to be like, if the video is not edited the tension wouldn’t be stronger and it wouldn’t look professionally.

Video Art Installation: REWIND “OVERVIEW”

I presented my installation in the class in a big screen this is because I wanted to show the class how effective the slow motion effect is when it comes to an action movements in a video. The slow motion looks great on a big screen because you can see how the action movements creates an exciting effect to the audience and it looks very intriguing how the actors movements looks robotic when its slow motion.

The music also goes well with it as i have to play the video and the music the same time, the music expands the excitement of it because how loud the speaker is that’s been built in the tv. The music i chose is called ‘go’ by the chemical brothers which links in with the story of chasing someone. The music is very weird having different types of bass, techno and beats having that 1980’s vibe into it.

The video and the music goes perfectly well together that it doesn’t matter if the beat is not cut into the video. The music makes it more exciting and makes the mood more strong in contrast with the video of the guy getting chased creating a thriller effect for the audience.

I had a lot of positive feedback of the videos getting questions about how i ┬ámade my slow motion effect, and how i created my story. I was very proud of this work because it’s very different and that is what’s this unit about that we can make anything whatever comes out in our brain.

Video Art installation IDEAS

My main plan is that I wanted to experiment the speed and duration of different videos that also has a story line into it. I want to experiment with rewinding videos from past to future, and have the story unfold at the end. I also want the videos to be in a slow motion so the viewers will see a lot of big gestures and facial expressions pretty well making an impact for the story.

Story: The story is going to be a guy who picked a wallet in a college corridor but as soon he picked it up the owners came out of nowhere looking for his wallet saw the guy picked it up. The guy got scared so he ran for his dear life getting chased by the owner. Until the chasing stop by the forest where eventually he got tripped and has no where to go leaving himself beaten up unconscious.

The video timeline it’s not going to be like this, it will start with the guy laying down the floor unconscious (present) and it will rewind of the chase until the point he picked up the wallet.

And then at the end i want a different scenarios, one where he picked the wallet and two where he didn’t picked the wallet. This gives a good message across to the audience that don’t ever steals someone’s belongings especially wallet because they might end up like the guy on this video.
