These images show the ability to create product labels of specific dimensions for bottles of different shapes and sizes taking into account print margins. (It also shows that small fonts in 300 dpi used for print do not always translate well into the 72 dpi used for the web.) The first labels show the need to fade the background for legibility. The round label clearly shows a foreground image cut out to reveal a model layered with colorized irises, her skin overlain with a tribal tattoo.
Video and Audio Media
Here is a video editing project showing an overview of the final Tweed River Music Festival in 2015. I was given three days of footage by a camera man who never used a tripod, used a single camera, and believed in record fast pans (he’s primarily a sound engineer). There wasn’t any board mix and any time the camera was shut off the audio went with it. Out of this, I constructed a fairly stable video using the most solid audio I could find. With a consistent audio background, the cuts between scenes give the impression that people are dancing to the song that is playing (they’re not). Notice that the images of each day’s performers are cut to the music. While editing this was a challenge, it also lent itself to a demonstration of editing effects and video layering that covered the short comings of the raw footage. Also effective was the documentary technique of panning still shots.
