Projection Mapping / Film II, Fall 2013

Wunderkammer / CinemaOptique Installation Documentation
DUE: Final Exam - Thursday, December 19, 10:45am

Documentation:
You must professionally document your Arts Xtravaganza 1) Wunderkammer and 2) CinemaOptique projects using video. As you know from researching video installation and architectural projection mapping, all that remains IS the documentation. The documentation video must be edited. We will watch it during our final critique (12/19), and it will be included on your final compilation reel of your semester's work that you submit during finals week (due Friday 12/20).

    GUIDELINES 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 shutter roll
  5. If the work is interactive / in the gallery, 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.
    GUIDELINESs FOR EDITING INSTALLATION ARTWORK DOCUMENTATION:
  1. Start with a title (either on a still or black/white) "Title" by Your Name
  2. Add a simple concept statement (text box) to present the piece.
  3. Be sure to show the complete video sequence in the documentation (beginning to end), using cuts / dissolves between different shots - but keeping it in sync.
  4. Feel free to cut in the original video (what you mapped), but use a lower thirds title "Original video" or "original source" so we know this is what was projected.
  5. You can show crowd / audience reaction shots if you like!
  6. If you used any sound or appropriated footage, you MUST credit your sources at the end. Also if you had actors, a crew, etc. add titles.
  7. Be sure to say this was "Installed as part of The Wunderkammer Exhibition in the Wankelman Gallery, BGSU, December 2013" or part of "Cinema Optique! at ArtsXtravaganza December 6, 2013"
