Montreal Intersection

[blip.tv ?posts_id=510633&dest=15981]

This is part of the Lumiere videoblogging challenge. Part of the spirit of the challenge is to avoid setting up a shot or series of video images according to a pre-defined plan, and letting the world speak to you by capturing moments as they happen.

 

The rules: * 60 seconds max * Fixed camera * No audio * No zoom * No edit * No effects

 

For more information see: http://videoblogging.info/lumiere/ Of course, in a sense I edited this piece, in terms of how I edited what I saw. When I first took the footage, I noticed a distracting reflection of the window curtain in the image, so I re-positioned the shot again without the curtain reflection figuring as severely as it had in the first take. I did not edit what was in the camera, but I edited what I “saw” by manipulating the environment of the shot. One could argue that I only “saw” the curtain because I was looking at how the shot was coming across for the Lumiere. When you do Lumieres, how much do you “edit” the environment?

Participatory Cultures

I spoke with Professor Henry Jenkins of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Comparative Media Studies Program. We talked about the concepts of participatory cultures and remix cultural forms, and how these concepts can be used to change education. For more information see:
