Student’s iPhone Video Takes Festival Prize

A one-minute video created on a professor’s iPhone has won first prize in its category at the New Media Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Amanda Poore, an art senior, produced the video as an assignment in a mobile video class taught by Bart Weiss, an associate professor of art in the film studies division.

The New Media Film Festival, held June 11-13 in Los Angeles, showcased innovative ideas and technology in visual media. Videos made with a cell phone were a new category this year.

In the first 30 seconds of Poore’s video, a variety of people are asked to say the first word that pops into their minds. Poore edited their responses to form sentences, with speakers combining to produce results like, “I swim in blue biopsy.” For the next 30-second segment, Poore supplied the words.
