Media Arts- Project 1: Pixelation

Welcome to all the incoming media art and film students! Our first assignment is a Pixilation that needs to be at least 30 seconds and it will be due Friday February 13. The final films can be handed in on disk, DVD or CD or you can post them on Youtube of Vimeo if you want. Below are some cool examples for inspiration.

This is a cool video from Radiohead (you have to give them credit for always putting out interesting videos).
