Jade Gelskey: Joshua Stocker, Sistine Chapel

Here is the posted final design as well as the final video+design.

War Photography - iPhone

This is what I have...


So, this is a post by Joe not Ham. I never got hooked up with the blog apparently.

I have the Katy Perry music video "Hot N Cold" along with the Sydney Australia Opera House.

My idea is to make a paper cake. The top of the cake will be exploding with content and info for Katy Perry's upcoming event put on by the iPhone. The background will probably be a stage reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House's stage which is where I will have the iPhone chilin.

I obviouslly have along ways to go but, the idea is the hard part eh? I know there is not much to look at but any input would be great.

Daft Punk & Eiffel Tower

Hey there so this is my final poster (with the movie in it) design. I still feel that there are things that I need to work on but was kinda struggling with this project so hopefully you all can give me some advice. Thanks for your critique and I hope you enjoy.

The War + Falling Water Final

My sketches, moodboard, and concept are all on my first post - http://suudesign2.blogspot.com/2010/04/war-falling-water-first-draft.html

Here is the final set design and photo, as well as the online ad with video.

My first post of my room :)

For some reason the color seems to be off. It is like the contrast is way up or something like that and so I am going to try and do it in keynote to see if I can get a better result.
P.S. If you watch the video make sure you watch it in 720. P.S.S Also watch it in full screen too! :)

Here is my new video with better color correction.

hooray for video!

Take 2

This is take two of my poster. I remade the picture frames to give them more of a dimension and worked with the lighting to match the video (House of Small Cubes). I used the style of art deco and colors based on the Golden Gate Bridge, along with the symmetry of the structure.

Chris Brown - Forever

Video with poster. The end.


So my building is the Taj Mahal and the video is Tir Nan Og. I think that it is obvious the elements that I used from the Taj I used the lattice work from windows, all of the arches also came from doorways or windows from the Taj. For Tir Nan Og or (Tir) I mostly tried to get the feel of the mood to flow into the image. I did this by adding the colors from the video to the pillows and other objects inside the room. I have thought about adding more furniture, but when I think of the Taj I also think of space. Let me know what you think.


My concept was to create a "living space" in Notre Dame, which suddenly comes to life with Wonderland-type things. I created a forest inside, and it almost becomes the Queen of Heart's Castle.

I wanted to stick with an enchanted, creepy style, and so I kept it pretty plain on top of everything elsel that was going on.


Here is my progression. I started making a 3D model, but realized I was spending just as much time in photoshop as I would be constructing this all in photoshop. I'm using hand-drawn elements from my video 'A Short Love Story'. Also, I took it a new direction after viewing an artist Jay recommended I look at. I want it to be on a white background & have shadows to ground everything, as well as a very short depth of field. So everything that is further most back in the composition will be out of focus. Also, I'm still considering the story book idea by making my set look like a pop-up book.

I figured it was best to post something today than nothing :)

Jolly Good Time with Taylor Swift

My concept was to combine Big Ben/Parliament with Taylor Swift's video, "You Belong to Me." The video focuses on hand written messages in marker. That is what I thought could help tie the two together by using that element in my design. This is currently what I have. I would like some feedback before I make the final touches to it.
