Connections I’ve made from the videos and readings throughout the semester were to the interview with Trevor Noah, Other People’s Footage and Mechanical Reproduction.
Trevor Noah spoke on how he connected with class B more than A because of the culture. My Skate Documentary reflects on that through the topics of skate shops and the skate community as a whole because of how the community feels like a family the way we help each other out through tips and the giving of parts to those in need. Most of my works stem from that identity because that’s what I connect to and how I identify myself.
Other People’s Footage is another video I made connections to through my repurpose video of Kickin It and my Monsters in my Head video. For Kickin It I redubbed the voices and added the old batman song and turned it into a scene about being ripped off and added a comical sense to it changing the scene to fit my message. For The monsters in my head piece I added a small portion of Monsters by Kxng Crooked and the other members of Slaughterhouse to fit the message I was trying to convey. The message I was trying to convey was someone trying to maintain his sanity while battling voices in their head.
For Mechanical Reproduction my Zoo York Pieces related to that because of how each time I reproduced the idea of the big apple I gave it a new aura and new Identity and I will also be using Illustrator to vectorize it and add color which is where the mechanical reproduction will come in.
