Final Project Documentation
Expanding video: Installation / performance

DUE: (Installed) Friday, December 3rd - Arts Xtravaganza

Documentation:
You must professionally document your Arts Xtravaganza Video Art Installation (Final Project) using video. If it is a performance that you will be part of, you will need to ask someone to help record the work. As you will see when researching video installation art, all that remains IS the documentation. The documentation video will be edited. We will watch it during our final critique (12/14), and it will be included on your final video art compilation reel of your semester's work that you submit during finals week (due Wednesday 12/15).

    GUIDELINE FOR DOCUMENTING INSTALLATION ARTWORKS:
  1. Use a TRIPOD ALWAYS
  2. White balance before shooting!
  3. Use Manual Focus people will walk in the way and throw off your focus!
  4. If the work is on a MONITOR, set your shutter speed to 1/60 or higher to avoid the roll
  5. If the work is interactive, shoot people interacting with the piece.
  6. You may want to document it BEFORE or AFTER the event if you want good sound quality (when less chaotic)
  7. If sound is important, use a microphone.
