Carnivalesque Documentary

By

Documentary film making is one of my passions. I’ve always been drawn to “real things” and the non-fictional spectrum of storytelling. I think that’s where authentic moments come to life. Although I have this urge to go out document the world around me, I’ve encountered roadblocks in regards to obtaining necessary gear at Ohio University. Because of the Create_Space I was able to heighten the production on my documentary on Carnivalesque 2015, a DIY music festival that took place the last weekend of March. My goal for shooting the fest included shooting from a bunch of different perspectives. We accomplished this by utilizing the GoPro HERO 3 in interesting places, such as the microphone stand. We also needed decent audio to capture the sound of the bands and the crowds in cramped spaces. We were able to do so with the audio gear that we check out. All in all, our experience with the...

Music Video (Violent Kind)

By

On March 16th I shot live video for the Dayton OH pop-punk band, Violent Kind. I recorded a live video of their hit song Composure, in the Double Happiness venue in Columbus, OH. The video was then cut and edited for a promotional music video to be distributed by the band. I did not pay anything out-of-pocket to complete this project, but had support from the CREATE_space by way of access to their Zeiss 50mm lens, which if I were to rent elsewhere, I would pay anywhere from $100 – $200.    ...

Pranking Ohio Presents: Intercosmic Love

By

Intercosmic Love is a musical designed to test the limits of brevity in regard to preparation, and tolerance in regard to those in the audience. For one night only, the Pranking Ohio team along with a few actors entertained a group of about forty individuals in the Baker lounge with a story of romance between a man and an alien dog. While this may sound like any ordinary space romance musical, it differs in the fact that it introduces a subtle communistic message in the beginning of the first act that blossoms into full-on communist propaganda by the close. It was a shocking and entertaining experience for our audience. Pranking Ohio is an AVW web series. We are not a pranking show, rather an absurdist comedy show. The now-defunct name was carried over from the previous year. We decided to put on a musical because we felt we hadn’t yet had something to show for our name and efforts,...

Lets Play – Black Ops 2 Zombies – Buried

By

For this project, I was asked to simply produce a Lets Play. This was for my Media and Creative Process class. I used the Elgato HD Capture card from the Create Space, along with my Panasonic GH-4. I set up the capture card, connecting it to my Xbox 360 and my computer. I downloaded the software and recorded the game-play separate from the face cam. I then added the face cam in editing. Below is the link to the project. Enjoy! https://seelio.com/w/1bwh/lets-play-_-black-ops-2-zombies-unit-6?student=patrickevans This project was completed along with many others for my Media and Creative Process class. This class is the Scripps bootcamp class. I have spent many hours on projects just like the one above. If you want to see some other projects, I have provided a link to my portfolio. I hope to utilize more within the Create Space in the future....

Ohio Against The World

By Ryan Davis

Ohio Against The World is becoming a leading clothing brand as a representative of Ohio. It’s popularity among youth and young adults has spread through the country fairly quickly. I was recruited to assist in developing new marketing material. For a new video I was requested to write and record a prompt that would apply to their mission. The mission of OATW is to exemplify the importance of journey and having a mission. The focus of my prompt dealt with pride but not exclusive to Ohio. It concerns itself with the concept of pride and how OATW chooses to accept it without interest in humility or arrogance. I used pride as a way to explain how a journey and mission correlate to finding ones truth. I recorded the prompt April 11th using my condenser mic and the porta booth owned by the CREATE Space.  

Water Treatment

By

For my Ethnography Research Methods class I have focused on Athens Water Treatment Plant and Athens Waste Water Treatment Plant. The research began with a desire to know more about the city’s water systems. By focusing on the two plants, the project highlights the supply and disposal of Athens’ water. As part of the research I made visual and audio recordings. These recordings at times serve to document the process and infrastructure of the plants and others open a new way to comprehend the sensorial aspects of the plants. Below is a video clip that was shot on the HD HERO2 camera. The camera was used to extend perception of the water within the plant by submerging it into the water.    ...

Painting Documentation

By Ryan Davis

This create research is the documentation process of my Blackness & Babel series. My Blackness series is an investigation into a redefining of what Blackness means is todays culture. We are living in a period where the notions of what Blackness means is becoming more inclusive in accepting all different forms of defining Black identity. I have done multiple paintings and audio works to express the claims of Blackness. This is also in preparation for a lecture I will be giving in the Artist Appreciation course April 6th 2015. These documented works along the rest of my Blackness & Babel works can be viewed on my website. ryandavistheartist.com    

The World Is Flat

By Todd Kunkler

sometimes you search for video coverage of recent tragedies (genocide, mass shootings, and so forth) to see what sort of emotion it will generate within you—to see whether or not you are the kind of person you’d like to believe you are—and the video will be preceded by an advertisement for a brand of toothpaste which offers you a “brighter, healthier, and more confident smile” and then you realize that you are out of toothpaste [This body of work is an investigation into the chaotic visual language of our increasingly image-saturated post-digital society. Through techniques of collage, appropriation, and photo manipulation I disband image and ideology, thereby calling into question the veracity of the multitude of images we consume daily, and revealing undercurrents of violence and control at the heart of representation.] http://newhive.com/toddkunkler/the-world-is-flat...
