Adrian and Mathew core workshop

After Mathew gave us a presentation on triangular thinking and text explosions, explaining that the link between image, text and sound and how each is a separate field but can enclose the other two.

After that, we watched the final scene of Zabriskie point a few times and we had to write done everything that we saw, hear, or text present on the film. I wrote down the description of everything I saw and then we went to the computer room with Adrian to start a related photoshop and after effects workshop.

first we needed to write our text with Arial black typeface. Then we had to choose a short sentence from it. I chose “the palette has changed.” The outcome of the workshop was to make text explosions.



working from this image we first wrote our sentence and then started creating layers, smart object and working slowly to make the text appear shattered. I learned new thing and controls I didn’t know from this workshop.

the palette has changed

This was the final outcome on photoshop. The we went into after effects and created a 3-second moving image of the image exploding , with a broken glass effect.

The purpose of this was to show us that when we are working on something and we don’t know what else to do with it, we can use the triangle of image text and sound and come up with new ideas and ways of seeing. In this case, the moving image could be stopped and then used all the still as individual posters having different outcomes.
