Final Project – NYC:2050 – Final (ish) thoughts

  This week has been spent on getting other final projects that fell by the wayside up to snuff, but I am going back into NYC:2050 mode like crazy before Friday’s screening in Non-linear Storytelling. I am proud of the work we’ve done thus far, I’m pretty happy with the outcome, and I view it […]

Week 12 update – main shooting done, editing starting

  We shot on Thursday, Sunday, and Tuesday, with significant prep on Saturday and Monday, so it’s basically been a week of shooting. It feels like my old life of TV production. We have a bit more b-roll to film, but I’m pretty happy with the shoots, for the most part. The thing about trying […]

Final Project pre-shooting paperwork fun

  We begin shooting NYC:2050 on Thursday, and go Thursday-Sunday and hopefully get most of it out of the way, besides lots of archival footage and random b-roll to continuously shoot in different weather conditions. The script has been back and forth with us about 6 times now, and I’m feeling pretty good about it. […]

NYC: 2050 – x/y grid and leverage points

  The above graph was part of the in-class assignment for me last week. A little bit uncertain of how to apply this to a short film, I thought about what I was most struggling with. Besides figuring out the style of the film (which is now pretty much set in stone), I’ve struggled with […]

  We’ve been through many different ideas and mock scripts this week, and we’re getting closer, we just haven’t hit the right thing yet. Our limitations/obstructions for a film are making it difficult to find the right thing that can be shown, not told. We know that: – We don’t have the budget/ability to show […]

NYC: 2050 update

  NYC: 2050 – a short film outlining a day in the life of a family in Manhattan. That’s been our start point for the film, and we’ve been working through the process quickly…probably more quickly than ideal, due to deliverables for our Non-linear storytelling class. David and I are working together, and are both […]

Final Project Ideas/Proposal: The World in 2050

  I’ve been fairly obsessed for awhile on what the future will look like, but based on fact and scenario planning and well-informed opinions, not by sci-fi and Hollywood movies. I’m curious what our generation will experience, what our grand children will experience, and what is a reasonable, informed hypothesis about how the world will […]

Week 6 midterm presentation – the Pathogenometer

  For our first assignment, I chose fresh water. It’s a very broad topic, with so many different topics and areas of interest within it. Privatization,┬áinaccessibility, virtual water and bottled water are all issues I gravitated towards. As I read, and at least thought I formed a project idea, I was asking myself many questions […]

Week 5: The Water Boiling Guide

  I know this is last minute to change projects, but for weeks I had not been happy with my developing nations drinking water concept, and after debating between that and two other ideas, I’ve decided to change. I will attempt to re-contact my experts (or new experts) to get their opinions, but I am […]

Week 5: Guerilla Gardening Leverage Points

Group project with Crystal, Ludfi, and Nick. Extreme thanks to Crystal for the graphic treatment. Our points, both generally for the problem and specifically what Ron is doing is below: 12. Constants, parameters, numbers   Space for gardens, water access for growth, soil, labour time, driving distance to healthy food They are increasing the amount […]
