Learning to draw with Hailey Mott (Assignment 4)

So far in J410, I’ve had a lot of ups and downs. I’m happy to report that I consider my Assignment 4 project to be an up! While I originally had a different idea to begin with, I am so glad I decided on filming Hailey draw. I thought that it would be interesting seeing a drawing go from a few lines on the paper to a full-blown masterpiece.

There were some troubles along the way, though. For a while, I couldn’t figure out the best way to get the sound of the pencils and erasing but not get all the background sound since there were classes in session. We ended up moving to a different room in the building and that solved a lot of problems.

It was also a very time consuming process. I don’t know if any of you have sat down to draw in the past but it takes quite some time! We were there for about 3 hours and I was filming many clips throughout the process. I had a lot to work with coming back to the lab to edit so that took a little bit of time to work through.

There are a lot of things I am happy about with this video. I think the subject is very interesting and I think the natural sound is a perfect addition to the video. I’ll let you decide for yourself. Here it is! Enjoy 🙂
