What We’re Watching

Noteboek from Evelien Lohbeck on Vimeo.

Last week, The Herald watched Takeuchi Taijin’s stop-motion video reimagining a fairy tale classic on YouTube. This week, the blog considers the stop-motion work of a Dutch art student named Evelien Lohbeck. Through hand-drawn sketches and hundreds of photographs, she transform an ordinary notebook into a notebook computer.

Each week The Herald posts video from either Vimeo or YouTube. We will discuss how to do this in HTML code and what’s appropriate in both content and copyright. Both Vimeo and YouTube are video-hosting sites. Vimeo is newer and smaller, and the videos found it are generally of better quality in sound and video than those found on YouTube. Also, focuses on user-generated videos of a friend and family nature. In other words, as a policy, the site avoids inappropriate or illegally copied video clips. TV shows, music videos, movies or anything else, not created by the user cannot be uploaded to the site.

Student Assignment: Julian
Review the video clip. Write a 200-word story about the video clip. Remember the five W’s of a news story:

• Who
• What
• Where
• When
• Why

Because this is a review, include you opinion about the video, as well as what you would do differently if making such a clip. You can include some biographical information about the video-clip’s maker. You should also link to her biographical information.

Also, at the end of your review, explain what YouTube and Vimeo are and do. Tell what is the general difference between the two site.

Style note
: Notice that the title of the video clip is in italic (or slanted letters/words). All titles of creative works -- books, magazines, newspapers, blogs, movies, video clips, and video games -- are italicized.

Create a Wordle graphic using words that describe this video clip.
