Two Projects in One Day!

Contained within this blog entry you will find my "final" version of my Atmosphere project.  Now, I haven't completely decided that this will be my final final, since I didn't do any color correction which was part of what the project was about (but I think a lot of my classmates skipped that part, and the prof didn't seem to mind), but I am pretty satisfied overall.

This assignment was to shoot and edit something with no actors which could convey the atmosphere of a specific time/space/what have you.

I finished two (!) projects today (one of which is for sound for image which I forgot to make into a quicktime before leaving school - doh!) so that's definitely something to cheer about, since there are only two weeks left of school.  yikes!

Anyway, I hope you like this.  It was a lot of fun to shoot and pretty fun to edit, too, if you like that sort of thing, which I do!  The song is not all-ages/spaces appropriate, so you may want to play it discreetly, but the images contain nothing lewd. 

Let me know what you think!  I still have time to fix things!

p.s. I really hope no one tells Lucinda Williams on me - she doesn't seem like the kind of woman you want to be on the bad side of.  But in case she or her lawyers see this - I'm not making an money off this and never will.  The music inspired me to make this film, which in turn helped me in my education.  I have four of her albums and I encourage everyone to go out and buy her music ASAP!!

(The ice cream truck is chiming through my skylight as I type this!) We spoke about your film earlier today, including a brief acknowledgment of copyright infringement regarding the Lucinda Williams song. I confess that I had not at that time seen your apologia regarding the song. (As we were scurrying around getting ready for the big trip, Auntie Knickers made a last-minute visit to her computer and shouted, "Look at Elinor's wonderful film!")
Anyway, I have no doubt that you are free to use the song as a class project with no problem. It is the dissemination of the song as part of your video on your blog that I worry about. Of course, all of this is nit-picking that poses no threat to a creative spirit like you. You, if I may make an assumption, are so comfortable in your created works that you welcome serious criticism. If you would be asked to remove the work from the "World Wide Web," you would just create another worthwhile project.
