Creative Video Montage

This is a montage of work from three levels of our Creative Video classes from 2001 to 2006. The clips come from music videos, surrealist dreams, art movement explorations, special projects, narratives, 3D animation projects, rotoscopes, and more. These various videos were made with programs such as imovie, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Blender, and Macromedia Flash.

Video Art

This piece is entitled "Money Maker 2004" and was made by Mike, who was a junior at the time. This is an example of a project from our video art unit, which students worked on after examining and discussing artists like Nam June Paik and Bill Viola.

Brady worked on this project for months- and it shows. She taught herself how to do things in Blender that we didn't learn in class. This video really shows the potential for using 3D animation to create a different world.

Blender Graf

This is the final project of one of my former students. It was made using the open source program Blender for the 3D effects and Final Cut Pro for the video. I've really never seen anything like it.

Music Video

This project was created by one of the Advanced Video students. In his role as a video intern, he was expected to teach a lesson to the introductory class. He chose to teach a lesson on 'music video', and created this one as an example.

The Cowboy Movie

As a special project, the High School Video club created a short video based on a script that a third grade class developed as part of their lesson on story telling. The final project was presented at a school board meeting showcasing the use of technology and video as an educational tool.

Rotoscoping is the process of animating over existing video. Rotoball is a collaborative project created by the Video Two class, in which each student animated a 15 second clip of themselves with the mysterious "rotoball" which transforms into something new in each interaction.
