NA project three, Detail Narrative
Screen printing with one channel from Taylor Pruitt on Vimeo.
Throughout this process in applying one communication channel to my detail narrative I learned how to manipulate time, and with maniupulating time, I learned how to be able to focus on certain aspects of a narrative. For my communication channel I chose image, and by this I learned that I had to make the image a good quality and interesting one. Either by angle, color, or motion. Throughout this I really focused on having a lot of detail shots to get the entire idea within the frame so that the viewer could understand what my project was all about.
The way I used narrative throughout this video was to show the process of screen printing, and by this I used time to show certain points off with most of the time having the speed of the video sped up, but with some key elements slowed down so that they could remember what I was doing. Editing the footage had a large part to do with what I know about narrative and how I could tell a story. Cutting down a seven minute video to 40 seconds was also challenging, but watching through the process I figured that a lot of it was useless, because it was very repetitive, and I didn't want it to get boring. As in the idea of a narrative there is a beginning, middle and end...not a beginning and thirty middles, then an end. Therefore that helped a lot when I thought about the video and it's own narrative.
