My Thesis

Hey everyone! Nicky here πŸ™‚

I apologize for not posting here for weeks now. I have been so caught up in my school work, my personal life, and random other things. But in terms of school, I’ve been really focusing on my thesis. For those of you who don’t already know what my thesis is on, here is a quick synopsis:

My thesis is a series of videos exploring the experiences of individuals immigrating to Canada and their memories of where they’re from. Each individual shares a personal, unique story of why they chose to come to Canada. Through these shared memories of immigration, a conversation can begin with others on their experiences and a better understanding of someone’s personal journey.

Currently, I have created one video at the end of December and am working on the next two now.

Take a look at my first video and let me know what you think!

 

Merry Christmas!

Interactive Design

Hey everyone! Nicky here πŸ™‚

This summer so far has been a mix of relaxation and a good amount of hard work. At my summer placement at Formative Innovations Inc. the skills that I am gaining and the work I have completed is amazing! From projects such as web design, branding, video production, editing, and layout design, IΒ worked hard to complete them while acquiring new techniques and ways of thinking.

With this being said, I am able to place some of the work I did on my portfolio, including a few web pages I drafted and helped develop.

Haunted

Hey everyone! Nicky here πŸ™‚

In my experimental typography class, we were tasked to create an experimental poster using the lyrics from any song of our choosing. For mine, I used the lyrics from Haunted by Beyonce, a song I’ve been constantly listening to for the past few weeks now.

Silence of the Lambs – Title Sequence

Hey Everyone!

This week is my final week of the first duration of summer school and I’m quite exhausted!
6 weeks really goes by so fast it’s unbelievable…

In my Graphic Narrative, Animation, and Motion, our final assignment was… you guessed it… a Title Sequence!

With this being my 3rd title sequence project at OCAD, I wanted to create something with more depth and raw footage. Also, I wanted to pick a film out of my comfort zone… HORROR!

I picked a pretty well known film called Silence of the Lambs, mainly because the original opening credits for the film is pretty DREADFUL!

So here’s my title sequence:
