I saw this short movie couple of month ago, I think it is a stop motion film. I love it because its storyline is so creative. Along with the VFX and SFX, and every childhood Lego, the audience could get into the movie easily.

The story is the boy falls down, his head separates from his body and start rolling, the head become to a bowling, hit some bowling pin which is made of trees, the head pops up finally become the earth.
It is just a idea,
just a idea,
- Collage or multiple image composition(s)
- Book (artist's book or not)
- Presentation (slide show)
- Surprise me!
3. Find examples of dynamic imagery and artwork and post it. Relating to transition and the examples that we looked at in class. Respond and discuss other's input also.“‘
Notice that the stop-motion animation is made entirely with whiteboard! He just took a photo for each modification, there's no need to redraw each frame. The music is from Minilogue's track of "Hitchhiker's choice." I think not only the hand-drawings on the whiteboard have blown people away, but also the music puts souls into the characters in terms of selected tempo as well as techno music elements. Pretty cool stuff!
I toke this picture while I was waiting for the whale watching boat. It was 7:00 am in the morning. the transformation of the water is really amazing...... it is good place to go,
I can remember the smell of the sea......
Anyway, hope we have great time this semester and enjoy the class!

It was a sunny day, around 5pm, this boy has been running for at least five laps, before that, he just finished his football training with his teammates, he was exhausted already, it seems each step he took is the last one... I guessed he will fall down in the next second, this moment is between his took his last step and he fell down.
I took this photo at my wife's naturalization ceremony at Fenway Park. I think this is a nice tranformation photo because it shows people from different countries all over the world transforming into American citizens. I wanted my wife to be in the photo but not pose. I wanted to get her experiencing the moment. I was going for the effect that the view from the camera was the view from a participant in the stands.
I took this picture I think on last winter while I was walking to my apartment. I felt strange right away because it was about just 11pm. no people walking, no cars driving, no train. not even a single blow of the wind. I heard only silences. It's completely quiet. This was not the place it used to be. As if the road is guiding to the mysterious place in the darkness. City were covered by shadows. It's like the city was transforming into the place in horror movie. It's not obvious show the transitions between night-day or day-night but it's just my feeling at that time.
I am from Thailand. I am an Electrical Engineer but never have working experiences because I came here almost immediately after finished my bachelor. I am doing Master Degree in Digital Media Program.
My specialization is 3D Animation. I am sort of shy person but for the thing you wouldn't guess about me is, I like soccer even though my appearance is not that athletic guy.
and I also like singing as a secondary favorite. please, don't ask me to show because i'm gonna be shy ;) .
I am Naveen Khan, originally from New Delhi, India. My background is Electronics Engineering. Professionally, I am a Television Broadcast Engineer having worked in various academic organizations as well as News channels. I came to Boston in 2009 to pursue my Masters program in Digital Media. My specialization is animation. My hobbies include reading, watching television (Discovery channel, National Geographic etc.) and cooking Indian dishes. I believe that every individual is born with some degree of creativity and a mentor plays an important role in stimulating it. I wish to expand my horizons professionally and have a strong desire to explore every concept of Media Technology.
I didn't come to class last Thursday because some family issues back in China, so the picture I took was the day I left Beijing. When I was standing outside the airport waiting for my father, I was deeply attracted by this beautiful view of sunset, and I realized this scenario contained multiple layers of meaning, in terms of "Transformation". First, it is obvious the transition between day and night. Second, the air pollution was so terrible in Beijing before 2008, it is very hard to have a clear sky, even this beautiful orange sunset clouds, but this summer holiday I found it very common to get blue skies and good weathers. Lastly, it means I have to leave home again to the place where I am pursuing my dream, inside of me, I know very well that I am going to loose something and gain some other things. I love photography, but not that professional, so I was try my best to make it looks pro.
By the way, due to some family issues, I couldn't get the chance to take the first week's class, hope that I didn't miss so much useful information.
I took this picture near my house. Honestly I am not quite understand transformation, For me, I think in this photo these two mallards are just landing on the water. I think this photo gives me the information that the two mallards flying from the sky to the water, and the other mallards are relaxing in the water. This is the original photo that i took yesterday, i am not good at editing photos, so if it has some problems,please tell me.

2. Read through the following Navy manual (yes!) -- on image composition. It's many pages, but can be skimmed through pretty quickly.
3. Create a (single) composed photograph based on the theme of 'transformation'. Create a new, original work -- Something original to this class, original to you and yes.... original.
