Hi everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

Merry Christmas!ย Here’s a late present from me to you… Raining Cats and Dogs ๐Ÿ™‚

See you in 2016!!

TOUCH

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

I decided to create a quick little exploration of touch, specifically looking at the meanings behindย touch; positive, negative, playful, symbolic, and seductive.

Check out the video below:

About Andrew Bromfield

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

I had the amazing opportunity to produce the “About Andrew Bromfield” video for Formative Innovations Inc., a design firm I worked at over the summer.

Please have a watch and enjoy!

Blue Project

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

Last weekend, I organized a pretty fun video shoot, involving two of my friends, a backdrop, my camera and tripod, beats speakers, and a lot of blue powder!
Through the many difficulties trying to organize the shoot, I managed to capture very interesting footage to use in my video. On my camera I set the frame rate to 60spf, so during the editing phase, I could easily slow the footage speed.

In After Effects, I worked some colour keying magic and applied a few other changes to produce the look I wanted.

I put the link below so have a watch!

Feminist

Hey everyone! Nicky here ๐Ÿ™‚

This past semester, I made a pretty “edgy” video for my expressive typography class.

In the video, I explore the meaning of Feminism for me as a woman in my world. I have always had an insecurity with my body, which started probably the beginning of 7th grade. I have small breasts, bigger hips, a wider waist, a bump in my nose, which made me feel extremely unattractive. The perfect image of what a woman should look like has always haunted my mind, to the point of these thoughts becoming obsessive. This made my self-esteem decrease.

Now, after reflecting on who I am and how people actually perceive me, I see now that I am beautiful because I am my own person. This video is a reflection of my journey to finding my inner woman.

Silence of the Lambs โ€“ 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:

500 Days of Summer Title Sequence

Hey fellow readers!

Its time for the post I’ve been dying to write about: My Title Sequence Assignment.

Here’s the brief I received from by professor
โ€“ย Inย Title Sequence, you will create a new title sequence (also known as opening credits) for an existing film of your choosing. This introductory sequence is intended to (fictionally) replace the movie’s original opening credits. This assignment will demonstrate your knowledge of narrative, sequence, cinematic techniques and exhibit your ability to skillfully convey original concept.

So, I started off making a storyboard:

Nicole Clarizio-Title Sequence Storyboard

 

I ended up not completely following my storyboard (sorry folks no kissing in this video).

๐Ÿ˜›

But here is my final video for you viewing pleasure. I ended up using Adobe After Effects for the clip editing and Adobe Premier to put the clips together!

So enjoy 500 Days of Summer: Title Sequence

And that is my Title Sequence Assignment!

Now I want to make title sequences for other moviesโ€ฆ MMMUUUUAAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
