My Color Montage May 4 2017

This is my journal for the Digital Video Course. It is also my first attempt at creating a digital journal which is intended for me to reflect on the learning process.

“A journal is also a tool for self-discovery, an aid to concentration, a mirror for the soul, a place to generate and capture ideas, a safety valve for the emotions, a training ground for the writer, and a good friend and confidant.” Ron Klug (2002: 1)


Assignment 1- Create a short montage video sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro focusing on a single color. The length of the video should be about 15 seconds, exported as an MP4 and uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube. In addition, reflect on the activity.

My First Weeks Reflection - My initial thoughts meander around thinking about my work for this project. The resources provided for finding the pictures were very helpful, then I just went with my favorite color and played a bit in Photoshop. I've dabbled with earlier versions of Premiere Pro but hadn't opened it up in quite a while. I was initially lost and the short videos in the lectures helped tremendously. Adding the images to Premier Pro was easy, I thought the use of the razor blade to crop them for timing purposes was more work and dragging the handles, as I call them, was quicker. The Ripple Delete function was new to me and I felt it was an efficient tool. I'm still a little confused about the "rendering files" the video didn't explain why the photos would or would not be rendered already and I had to do that to all my images. I added some transitional effects to each image so they blended from one to another its seems a more pleasant presentation. Lastly, I hope I achieved the "intensity" the project was striving for. Oh, and by the way, Spark is fun!
