E4.4: The Cat: erasure, refocus

Use Pfeiffer’s method of animated digital erasure to change the meaning of a video you have made or one that you have found.
You’ll likely need to use appropriate digital software and a travel or garbage matte for this (review the use of mattes in the previous project). Alternatively you could do the work by hand: printing each still and working on them (see previous project). You could also invent your own way of removing certain parts of the frame from sight.
The duration of this video depends on its source and the meaning you are trying to convey.
Upload your completed re-made video to your learning log along with any notes and preliminary sketches or photographs.

Uses processes of animated erasure and re-focusing on video footage from benches along the River Cam to show changes over time and human interactions.
