Find some clips of a classic movie where a character is in a movie theater, or is watching something on a TV or computer screen. Edit in sequences from a newer movie's trailer, one that you wou;d totally not expect this character to be watching. Get it? One movie watching another. If you are good, the watching character's emotions will be relfectd by the scenes in the new movie. Even better, bleed some of the audio of the newer trailer over the original so the sounds overlap.

Lucy Haleception

For my first mashup assignment, I did the “One Movie Watches Another” assignment. I’ve been binge-watching “Pretty Little Liars” as of late, so the first thing that came to mind was the plethora of scenes from the show where Aria is watching Film Noir, which she loves. I found a …

Poltergeist Watching the Election

In light of recent events, this assignment was pretty cathartic.  I used a scene from Poltergeist to depict the watcher and a news clip to depict what was being watched.  I utilized iMovie to edit the scenes together, making sure to layer the entirety of the audio from the news …

Hitler likes My Django Remix

The Ring and Totoro

You know, I was honestly hopeful when Master did a few of the assignments for this week himself, that he would do the rest on his own.  Not so…
Well, I managed to gather together some clips from the Ring–where the main plot element IS someone watching a video!  Afterwards,…

One Move Watches Another

The purpose of this assignment was to combine two movie scenes in which one scene looks as if it is watching the other movie scene. After completing the project it came out pretty realistic as if she was watching the movie. The two movies I chose were from Saving Private…

The Ring if Adam Sandler Directed it

What if Samantha didn’t kill every one in The Ring? Well then chances are Adam Sanlder directed it. For this assignment I took a clip from the ring, and one from Anger Management, and using imovie placed the two together.…
