NM3208 Presentation 5ii


Special Effects and Visual Effects are often integrated in a drama/ clip, so I just chose some of my favourite shows and caption the parts where special effects /visual effects are used…

There are simply too many!

eg. Ultraman (miniature monsters are used); Titanic (miniature ship is used to film the “wide angle” of the sinking of the ship); The matrix, Spiderman etc etc…

In here, there’s a mixture of Special Effects and Visual Effects

For this clip, it’s mainly special effects (filmed in 1999)

For this clip, it’s mainly visual effects (The super powers etc)

2g. Ken Burns Final Work


My Final Work….

Reflections…

I’m kinda proud of myself, cuz I managed to figure out the basic stuff of After effects before I approached Jia Xiang for last minute help…
It’s not perfect, there are still some alignment problems, and the animation may be a bit too fast…

But as an advertisement, if it’s too slow, and the clip is too long, it may be a bit boring? Tsk, so contradicting… But working to 5am for this 1min 26s video using After Effects, I felt that I’ve done my very best within my limited limits. lol.

Yea!

Special Credits to:

Eng Chye (for lending his pants, being the sleeping model and photographer)
Daryl ( for being the most embarrassing model and photographer)
Helen ( for being the pretty model -wearing the ‘shiny’ bejeweled shirt and photographer)
Terrence (for being the handsome photographer and model)
Jia Xiang (for teaching me how to do music remix and doing it for me! lol)
Me, myself and I (for completing the video on time!)

Final: Script & Storyboard for Video 2


SCRIPT FOR CNM ADVERTISEMENT VIDEO (2)

1.

(O.S) This is a video guide to teach employers how to spot a CNM student in plain English

(O.S) These days, it is so easy to find a graduate in Singapore. Walk on the streets of Orchard road, the chances of approaching someone with a degree is like one out of four.  And they are all after ONE thing – A Job!

So how do you identify a Communications and New Media student from the crowd?

2.

(O.S) The first step: How to Identify a CNM student

3.

(O.S) Let’s take this Tom here as an example, a normal graduate. Now, let’s look at Tom as a CNM student.

4.

(O.S) Notice how bright the eyes are, and the head, is larger than normal graduates due to the unusual amount of creativity in it.

5.

(O.S) Hands, always constantly on the move, either on a smartphone, laptop or even on a sketchpad. This is the symptom of an over-dosage of creativity. They simply can’t stop!

6.

(O.S) A CNM student is actually a superman in disguise, he can perform the duties of a journalist or a public relations or advertising practitioner, yet comfortable with visual design and content production for digital media—e.g. online publications, blogs, podcasts virtual communities, interactive advertising, practically everything FUN.

7.

(O.S) Second Step: Where to find them?

8.

(O.S) You can’t.

9.

(O.S) A fully-evolved CNM graduate would have been snatched away the moment they step out of school. This is because , they are be able to work in a wide spectrum of private corporations, public agencies, non-profit organizations and media-related industries in policy formulation, public relations, corporate communication, media relations, media design, games design, journalism and research and information management positions, among others.

10.

(O.S) They are wanted EVERYWHERE.

So, you can’t simply grab them of the streets just like that!

11.

(O.S) Third Step: What to do to GET them?

12.

(O.S) There are a small group of pre-evolved CNM students carefully selected by our sharp and experienced lecturers. These students are usually found in a place called the National University of Singapore, and the CNM department keeps a record of the list of evolving students.

13.

(O.S) Want to search for them yourself?

14.

(O.S) Beware, you may find many students along your way, playing games on Facebook or even working on their smartphones. They are just the normal students pretending to be a CNM student.

15.

(O.S) Communications and New Media (CNM) at the National University of Singapore is the ONLY programme in Southeast Asia which offers media studies, interactive media design and communication management with a focus on new media.

16.

(O.S) Can you spot them yet?
