This post contains a video demonstrating a flash application I created in the first year of study at Bournemouth University. The brief was for a simple tutorial based application developed in Adobe Flash, to demonstrate key principles of digital SLR photography. My application exceeded the expectations for the assignment, and i received a grade of 98% for this piece of work, please feel free to watch the video below.
The application was developed entirely in Adobe Flash, I created the graphic elements using Adobe Photoshop, and all photographs were taken by me specifically for this project. The application makes use of both standard animation techniques as well as action script code, and object orientated programming. I have been further developing this application and intend to release it for free in the near future.
The brief for this piece of work was to create a promotional video on a subject of your choice. I chose to promote the course I am studying at Bournemouth University. This video was shot in pairs, and over half an hour of footage was edited and mixed to fit into a strict 2 minute time slot. The video is embedded below and is hosted on youtube.
The video was shot and edited in 1080p high definition video, all editing and sound design was performed using Final Cut Pro, and Soundtrack Pro.
Please note, the embedded video is only 360p resolution. You can click through to youtube to view the 720p HD version. This work was produced in my first year at Bournemouth University.
This report is an initial investigation into the differences in RMS amplitude between professional and amateur recordings. It was an investigation I conducted in my second year of studies at Bournemouth University. It had been mentioned to me by many industry professionals that the use of compression to boost a tracks volume was becoming more and more apparent in modern day studio recordings. I wanted to find some proof of this, and so i undertook the study comparing professional and amateur recordings. The investigation is available to view and download below.
Please feel free to use the investigation and reference to it if applicable, but do bear in mind that this was produced as part of a university assessment and certain constraints were applied, these are detailed fully within the document. Finally, this report should be viewed as a preliminary investigation only, due to the small sample sizes used for analysis.
