Color Theory “Dreamscapes”

Filed under: Color Theory — Mia @ 4:49 am

For a final Color Theory project, I began with a scanned signature that I put into a Flash movie, a photo of my watercolor palette, captured background music, and internet video clips of ink in water. I used Final Cut Pro’s Motion software to zoom in, on the paint palette, and then imported that file into Final Cut Pro. Per-Olev Kindgren, a Swedish classical guitarist, played his song, “Autumn,” on a YouTube video. I captured the video with Camtasia software and then extracted the audio file for the project’s background music. I used Final Cut Pro’s color key and opacity features to overlap video clips, and I timed them to the music. I really like the combination of achromatic grays with the brighter hues of the watercolor palette, and Pelle Kindgren’s guitar added richness to the final video. I’ve practiced projecting the video with a Samsung portable LED projector.
