along with the curry mile video i have also been working on photos and editing the photos with in photoshop adding different types of food in to the images..
i'm enjoying doing this and having fun with photo editing..

week 5

i have finished the animation on the old photographs turning the old black and white photos in to neon colourful ones. i have gone to the same spot where the photos where taken and retook the photo as it looks today .. i hope to upload these and include them some how such as makingthe old photos fade in to the new ones and seeing the differece between the photos.

this week i have also taken a file experimenting with lights. i have taken two bikle lights and filmed then in the dark flashing in different ways to make differenmt effects and pattens like the lights down curry mile do .. this film looks a little simmal but added with the rest of the film might look effect and with some editing to it will work with in the film.

tomorrow i plan to take a vioce recorder down curry mile and try to pick up the sounds and atophere of curry mile i will also try and fade the new photos in to the old and i would also like to film up and down curry mile from the top of a bus to get the high and steady view of the street.

lectures 5

i found this week lectures particalar intresting and saw that i could use some of the techniques that the film makers hade used in my 'food' themed project.

len lye - colour box - 1936

this one stood out most as it the use of colour and movenment that caught my eye.
the way that he had uysed live action and added bright colours to add an effect and movement.
think about my own pratice i thought of a way to use animation in my film and tried some experimenting with old photos of curry mile that i found in a book 'looking back and fellowfield and rushomle'. and the taking it in to the animation room where i can use stop motion to over lay the photos with bright colours making them more like what the curry mile is today which is all neon lights and very bright.

i did this today in the animation room and i think it worked out quite well as a little section to go in to my finished film. working with the old photographs, using green,pink,yellow and blue highlighters i coloured in the photos step by step taking a shot after each move so that i could capture the image being coloured in to neon style.


over the weekend i went to a music concert to see pink in birmingham on halloween

the show was amazing and she certainly put on a goopd proformance.
the thing thats makes her stand out is the acts and dances she has during the show like aerial acrobatics were she does various moves holing on to just a long piece of materail and also on the last number she span around in the material and then was lowered in to water and then lifted srpaying water all over the crowd.
i thought this was clearfully worked out and very effective to see. also the stage was dressed like a funhouse (the name of the newest album)with two slids down either end of the stage which were used ofter. and heart shaped sofa and decorations such as clows and blow up jokers which were the hight of the venue.

loved every minute of the act and though it was well presented,oprganised and every song sang beautifully apart from one where she forgot the words 3 times but i liked that as it shows where all human and we all can fuck up at some point.
