movie finished

Synthesis of my learning

Last term I finished with a spectacular progress of learning thanks to MTV project. Even more this term because of my objectives that I wanted to reach with my final project. I have made a big effort to learn After Effects step by step to be able to finish my music promo. I have started with my basic knowledge to make the promo, and I went gaining more and more knowledge from teachers, colleagues, internet tutorials, and books…

The problem is, that is not all about programs. Because I have spend a lot of time making a perfect movement for an animal for example, but, when I finished the project, I realised that I didn’t think of other things as guide the observer, if it is long and boring…. I have spend much more time learning than watching the movie in global as a zoom out.

Thankfully I have worked a lot weeks before the final presentation I had time to change a lot of things to make it, at least, almost perfect. (As I can of my knowledge).

Criticall evaluation

I do not want to seem that I want to say I have done a perfect process. But I feel I have done all in the perfect time. I have research a lot for my proposal; I have studied every sound of my music. I have work hard to do it step by step. For example, First week to search images, cut them and make movement to them. Second week to put everything in the timeline in different compositions. Third week put everything together. And add things as the universe to make more dynamic my movie.

Before of this, I have search for videos of early computers animations, experimental music, also how a story is explained, I have made an interview to the compositor of the music, I have studied the music…

All of this have gave me perfect methodologies and time to finish it in time.

Demonstration of the aptitude

All I wanted with this final project is to show what I have learnt using the programs and learn while I was making it, my style and what really enjoys me.
I have worked in this project with all my energies, my sacrifices and happiness to create a perfect work.
The only problem is that I don’t find the time to say, “ Okay, now is finish” because every day I want to make something better, change another thing….

Also, I can show my aptitude with all different videos that i have upload.

When I finished the video, I realise during the first 3o seconds, the images and music are going at the same time, but in the rest of the promo, music and images are a little bit distance. I mean, that seems that there is no relation between music and images. And also, 1 minute and 20 seconds of the same it could be a little bit boring watching always the same..

Ok, I asked people to tell me truth and they told me same as I thought.

Problem, I have only one weekend to make something with this boring final project!!!

I have change the movement from mushrooms, flowers, cactus, tonges.... to appear at the same time of the sounds of the music. COOL, much better! but... it's too boring..

Berta, think, berta think.... everything is a magic world... magic universe.... why I don't show this to the spectator!

Thankfully to my colleague Gabbor. he teach me how to use some effects to create an universe and worlds....

i don't want to speak more...see it with your own eyes!

Promo with bubbles

Ok, now i have finish it as my storyboard... I was trying to move bubbles from pics but i couldn't reach the real movement, so I search for any effect to help me, and there is one! FOAM!! thankfully. I have learnt how to use an effect FOAM to create the bubbles... very difficult to underestand how to use it... one day later.. I could finish it..

Now it's finished( there is one mistake, that one tree appear later)

Even it's finished..... something has to change... I don't really like it.. needs something.....


My proposal is to make a music promo for an experimental track by the musician Soundee.
The project uses motion graphics to create a virtual world that explores an emotional connection to music.
It attempts to explore the connections between the human and the digital and to incorporate the feeling and action of reading moving images.

Puppet Tool [after effects]

The truth is that I've never heard before about this tool and one colleague showed it to me. Almost I've learnt by myself and I think I've made a good job.
I've made animals to be alive!
Such an effort!

guide the observer

When I finished all the animation, I realise that the animals movement weren't in the proper moment. So I have ask some friends to know where are looking in that moment. So I've change it. Now, as I underestand, the animals movement are in the correct time to look.

media art

New media art is an art genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including computer graphics, computer animation, the Internet, interactive technologies, robotics, and biotechnologies. The term differentiates itself by its resulting cultural objects, which can be seen in opposition to those deriving from old media arts (i.e. traditional painting, sculpture, etc.) This concern with medium is a key feature of much contemporary art and indeed many art schools now offer a major in "New Genres" or "New Media." New Media concerns are often derived from the telecommunications, mass media and digital modes of delivery the artworks involve, with practices ranging from conceptual to virtual art, performance to installation.


The origins of new media art can be traced to the moving photographic inventions of the late 19th Century such as the zoetrope (1834), the praxinoscope (1877) and Eadweard Muybridge's zoopraxiscope (1879).

During the 1960s the development of then new technologies of video produced the new media art experiments of Nam June Paik and Wolf Vostell, and multimedia performances of Fluxus.

More recently, the term "new media" has become closely associated with the term Digital Art, and has converged with the history and theory of computer-based practices. Ever since the early days of computing there have been a dedicated few who toiled to create pieces of art on the digital medium. It wasn’t until the advent of the commercial internet in the late 80’s and early 90’s that digital art attracted a broader range of artist. The communicative nature of the Internet and the excitement of the dot com bubble helped fuel early net art pieces like and net art groups etoy.

Simultaneously advances in biotechnology have also allowed artists like Eduardo Kac to begin exploring the new yet ancient medium of DNA and genetics.

Contemporary New Media Art influences on new media art have been the theories developed around hypertext, databases, and networks. Important thinkers in this regard have been Vannevar Bush and Theodor Nelson with important contributions from the literary works of Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, Julio Cortázar and Douglas Cooper. These elements have been especially revolutionary for the field of narrative and anti-narrative studies, leading explorations into areas such as non-linear and interactive narratives.



Siddhartha is an allegorical novel by Hermann Hesse which deals with the spiritual journey of an Indian man called Siddhartha during the time of the Buddha.

The book, Hesse's ninth novel, was written in German, in a simple, yet powerful and lyrical, style. It was first published in 1922, after Hesse had spent some time in India in the 1910s. It was published in the U.S. in 1951 and became influential during the 1960s.

"Siddhartha" means "he who has attained his goals" or "every wish fulfilled".[1] The Buddha's name, before his renunciation, was Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Buddha. The main character of Siddhartha in the book is not the same person as the Buddha, who in the book goes by the name "Gotama".

Experience is the aggregate of conscious events experienced by a human in life – it connotes participation, learning and perhaps knowledge. Understanding is comprehension and internalization. In Hesse’s novel Siddhartha, experience is shown as the best way to approach understanding of reality and attain enlightenment – Hesse’s crafting of Siddhartha’s journey shows that understanding is attained not through scholastic, mind-dependent methods, nor through immersing oneself in the carnal pleasures of the world and the accompanying pain of samsara; however, it is the totality of these experiences that allow Siddhartha to attain understanding.
