BCIT Promotional Video – Ken Burns Effect

Description

The "Ken Burns Effect" was a technique of animating still images by American documentarian Ken Burns.

By panning and zooming across photographs, the filmmaker can help keep the audience engaged and add a sense of movement. By utilizing tools such as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, 2D images can be made to appear 3D. The song was created in Garage Band.

For this project, I tried to impart the feeling that BCIT is an exciting, trendy, cutting-edge school. The goal was to instill a hopeful, warm feeling, that would cause the viewer to be intrigued and seek out more information about BCIT.
