Booktube-A-Thon | Challenge Day 4 | Styleframes WIP

-Yawn- Started falling asleep while working on this. Long day of lots of different projects and then I went and got a fun haircut. So didn’t really get to work on my challenge video until tonight. I’m posting just the styleframes since I haven’t had a chance to do anything with audio or music. Challenge is to make a poem using book titles (the spines). I thought I’d handletter the titles so it took a bit longer to put together than wanted. I need to place the images of each novel in still and adjust so that you can read the poem and understand what’s going on. It’s a task I plan on leaving until tomorrow morning since I’m really tired. Night guys!



What story do you see?

Day 8 of 365.

Let’s talk stories in art. Below is a quick manipulation I created out of my own photographs & stock photos from Unsplash. I guess it’s not really talk so much as what do you think this photo represents to you? I have my own reasons for the type of narration I want to express through this. I don’t want my personal statement to make any type of impression of your interpretations, so I’d rather not say anything at all (at least not until tomorrow’s blog). I do ask that everyone, who looks at this, to really think about what kind of narrative you take away. Especially since this is a very abstract piece.

I believe that stories shouldn’t always be told to us, sometimes you have to make up your own. These stories can be personal, shallow, narrative, a documentary, and much more. It’s up to the viewer to really make the stories for themselves.

Today’s story experiment is to see what stories you can think of. Please leave a comment or tweet at me with the story of this manipulation.
