Scene Remakes Spring 2015
In this project, students in Motion Graphics 1 at SUNY Buffalo State’s Department of Design are asked to remake a short scene from a conventional film. They must attempt to match each shot, each angle, and each word spoken as closely as possible using only the people and props available during class. In this process, they learn not only the basics of editing, but more importantly, they become attenuated to the grammars and vocabularies of the conventional filmmaking paradigm. The resulting videos tend to be pretty funny.
