Final work: I followed Gabe’s suggestion and manipulated the video live, using several effects in Max. This worked out well because I was able to create a new perspective each time! I also attempted to apply a cool video transition showing my keypad skills but…
Both videos flow seamlessly and seem to show the artist in the present moment while simultaneously reflecting on his past. I chose Kendrick because I truly appreciate his work as an artist; he’s not afraid to address societal issues and problems brown people face living in America.
The audio is also significant because it darkens the perception of the video you’re about to view. This is about perception and creating your own story based on what you see right in front of you – and how “easy” it is to change it.
Screen capture without effects:
- I’d love to also manipulate the audio in real-time, I think it would have a dramatic impact overall.
- Transitions could flow better.
- More effects.
- Better use of keypad and/or external component.
- More videos of Kung Fu Kenny!
