In Audio Video Production 3, students experiment with various production techniques. Recently, Landon Brands and several other students decided to take on a motion tracking project that explores a single instant in time during an earthquake.


To make this piece, students carefully examined existing work and used creative problem solving to figure out how to achieve a similar effect on their own. “The time freeze was a serious learning experience,” said Landon. “It involved planning and executing a highly specific shoot, learning a match-moving program, and then lighting/compositing computer generated elements into the scene.”

Here in Minnesota, we don’t have to worry about earthquakes…but with so many of our students landing jobs in LA, this project was a great warm-up!
