This afternoon, at the latest art reception, as I checked out the art on display, I was inspired to make three different videos of different lengths. When I walked around in the village center, the buildings and structures outside gave me some ideas for drawing scenes in my graphic novel, and I want to return tomorrow to draw some scenes for my story.
My video North of Tijuana Part 1 of the artworks on display at the August 13th art reception, North of Tijuana, displays a variety of art, from modern abstract art to worldwide scenes that make great vacation getaways. There are also some sculptures, jewelry, and other items. As I check out the artworks in the video, I realize that the scenes appear to be of San Diego area because of the beach, parks, and Spanish architecture of the buildings and structures. The featured artist is Vartan Ohanian, and other artists include Gary Abel, Sue Cole, Mung Deo, Bill Fisher, Veronica Kortz, Maureen MacDonald, Mary Ann Nethercutt, Iriet Peshkess, Peter Pham, Nancy Villere, Kathy Worden, and Maria Yepez. After I uploaded the first video on youtube, I decided to use the music, Far The Days Come by Letter Box, which is Ambient music. It is the longest video that I can find, at five minutes, for my ten-minute video.
My video North of Tijuana Part 2 is of the art reception party. This video is much shorter at three minutes. You can still see some of the artwork in the background, but it is all about the artist party and the social event. There was also a birthday cake, which was for one of the artists, Jean Williams. Since there was a two-man band playing at the end, I didn’t add any background music. I kept the original music.
I created a third video, North of Tijuana Part 3, at the same event, but this video is much shorter at two minutes long. It is of the Live Art Event activity during the art reception as well as promoting Lam Thuy’s painting and jewelry at another area of the art gallery. For the third North of Tijuana Live Art Event Part 3 video, I decided to add music from youtube, Tuscon Tease by John Deley and the 41 Players, which is Country & Folk music, for the background of this short two-minute video. I created this video from some snapshots I took with my iPhone of the Live Art activity and interaction during the art reception event.
