Oscars Fundraising Night - Exhibition Work - Photos

Photographs taken by second year Photography student Tomm Morton

Final Shoot - Performance/Interactive - Contact/Videos

I did my live performance piece/interactive exhibition on Monday 28th February.

Here are the videos that I took of the day time lapsed so that it is not a long viewing. As well as the contact sheet from the day.

We shot on the digital Hasselblad which I am extremely happy for because the images are so detailed and can be printed big if I chose to do that which is fantastic.
I will write a blog post about the day after this post.

I was really overwhelmed with the support from friends on facebook. I screenshotted the people that shared my events to their friends to try and help me spread the word.

I also emailed Matt and asked if he could upload and email the poster. I wanted it to be cryptic but I thought more students would come if a teacher emailed it out and they realised it was a legit thing that was happening.

Event page and promotion

I created a facebook event for the page so that I could spread the word to my friends and then they could invite their friends from the university also. I then made qr codes to print out. I kept in theme of being quite cryptic and decided to print sheets and sheets of the qr codes and then cut them up and sprinkle them around University. The mystery of it compels people to scan the code which leads them to my event page.

Last night design

So Daniele designed the last night countdown design but some of the design team had some issues with it and unfortunately Danielle was away from her computer and so she asked me to work on it for her. I didn't mind doing this because I have really been enjoying doing the designing.

The first one I made was this (a modified versions of Danielles)
One thing that was said was that they liked the title better and the different use of fonts for each section but they didn't like the unevenness of the two pieces of text one side and three the other. Another suggestion was to try adding in the prices. I was worried this would put people off before they got to the event. 

So I changed it and added in that there would be paparazzi at the event, although not part of our fundraiser, Emma had said she was going to get the photographers to stand outside and pap the queue. I added in the prices but personally i didn't like it, I liked the added prices for the event itself but not for all our fundraising areas. I felt it just looked too busy and the group agreed.

I took off the prices and we were left with this. The final night countdown design.

Live Performance Poster Design

I wanted to design a poster for the exhibition but I wasn't quite sure what approach to go for. 
I took to Pinterest again and searched for some inspiration. 

These were the three I found that I liked the most. I even liked that one of them had an image of someone painted white which was funny. 

As I always say, I like simplicity and these are perfect to me. 

I played around a little on Photoshop and I used an image from a shoot I did a while back with Madalina. 

I wanted an image that showed by back but also kept my face out of it. I also wanted the posters to be a bit cryptic so I wanted the image of my back to be something that people look at and think "What is that?"

I wasn't entirely sure if I even wanted a photo in it though, because I did want the posters to be something quite simple that just stated the date, time and place along with the title of the project.

I made a few designs but there just was something I didnt quite like about them, until I made the white poster. I really liked the simple design and I had an idea of putting on a QR code to the facebook event that I was going to make for it so that people could scan and find out a little bit more about the event.

The last poster I made to try something a little different but I thought I was being all arty but I really didn't like the outcome.

I asked my flatmate for her opinion and she agreed that the fourth poster design was the one that stood out the most and didn't give anything away.
