== Synapse ==  
=== Description ===
+
*http://synapsekinect.tumblr.com/post/6305020721/download
Pick a topic where a clear change / transformation occurs.<br>
+
Make use of both conceptual and visual contrasts;<br>
+
conceptual: poor/rich, left/right (political), village/city.<br>
+
visual: black/white, small/big, hard/soft.<br>
+
  
On the basis of the chosen topic, you make a visualization per group in the form of an image sequence. This sequence can be; photographed, filmed,
+
== Brekel ==
drawn, etc.
+
*http://brekel.com/
  
Via an existing template (which can be customized per group), the image sequence is connected to the Kinect. The transformation happens by body movements of the user.

=== Learning Objectives ===
+
[[Kinect Hacks 2016 2017 Module 1| First Assignment]]
* The student is able to create a physical interface with use of the Kinect.
+
* The student can visualize a conceptual transformation in the form of an image sequence.
+
  
=== Assessment criteria ===
+
== Second Assignment ==
* Conceptual development and research on the theme of 'transformation'.
+
* Technical skills and realization of the prototype with the Kinect.
+
* Personal development, be able to develop new insights.
+
* Collaboration; being able to make an active contribution, meet deliverables, take responsibility.
+
  
=== Weighting assignment===
+
Scan (at least) one object or space using Kinect. Create a video where you used the scanned object or space to create a narrative (of at least 90 seconds).
50% of total score
+
Groups of 1 or 2 students.
  
== Assignment 2 - non linear storytelling ==
+
Presentation second assignment: '''31th January''' (obligatory to present to pass the course)
=== Description ===
+
Video is often presented in a linear fashion. In this assignment you create a nonlinear interactive video / animation. On the basis of the movements of
+
the user different scenes are triggered. Within this video you make use of video loops.
+
The topic for this video is "new / artificial nature '.

  • IO -> AudioInput
  • Soundfile -> Sample

Assignments

  • 2 Assignments
  • 50% of total score each one of them.
  • Working in groups

For each assignment the group delivers:

  • Textual description of the the concept
  • Visual research, sketches, sound?
  • Cast, who is responsible for what?
  • Short video registration of the prototype / end result (each group is responsible for the filming and editing of their finished works)

First Assignment

Second Assignment
