Rhymes – Final Composition

After one to one consultation with Prof,¬†I had a few that was in the “Chosen” folder. In the process of selecting which image actually suits and flows with one another, I aligned them all into the template.

Therefore, these are my final 4 compositions that makes up the whole Humpty Dumpty rhyme.

Exploration of Compositions

So, I have decided to proceed on Humpty Dumpty for this project.

I had brainstorming moments with the images that the class shared in Dropbox. I also looked for my own images and mix and match wherever it looks suitable. With the images, I tried to think simple and play around with the positions to try and avoid symmetry. However, I still think those in symmetry looks the best.

The composition images below will be divided into its different lines from the verse.

(Some of the compositions had to be shared in one frame due to exceeding limit of image size for upload.)


“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall”


“Humpty Dumpty had a great fall”


“All the King’s horses and all the King’s men”


“Couldn’t put Humpty back together again”

In conclusion, I tend to go for minimalism in the compositions, and I liked the repetition being included in the compositions for Line 3. These compositions are experimented on but sadly, not chosen for the final composition.


Walk with me through this journey~


This journey shows my daily routine to school almost everyday through the week. The idea was to capture what I see and experience during the journey to school and back home, into still images.

So after the recent in-class cinema critique, I’ve edited a few of the images and probably will still continue to edit on a few areas.

With that, end of Assignment 2!

Journey to & fro School

(This video is my first cut on the journey I’ve chosen. Some audio that I’ve recorded have not been put in here — that explains the silence at some part.)


*krik krik.. title sounds too long*

When we were given the assignment…. “Still images into a video?”

Not much ideas flowed into my mind, except for the common journey to school, journey of travelling etc. Initially I wanted to mix my ‘journey to school by car’ and ‘journey to school by public transport’ together and then finishing with the ‘journey back home from school by public transport’.

Howeverrrrrr, I didn’t really know how it will turn out so I just focused on my normal to and fro school by public transport. When I took these images, I admit that I felt it was abit mundane…… Knowing there wasn’t anything fancy or interesting to show.

Consultation with Prof, he mentioned to have different audios along the journey to school. For example, while waiting for the traffic light to welcome the green man, what interesting conversation was there by people around me? Or, in the bus, what interesting convo was there? The sound of the television heard from outside the house just as I reach the corridor?

And with those comments from Prof, I actually tried to capture some of the sounds/audios as much as possible.

*Recent comment from Charlene was to include what I see (strange or interesting things) while I am on the way to school. Those little things that peak hour people rushing to work would not notice. And so I shall set another mission for myself this recess week — hoping that I’d have enough time before the consultation the following Tues.*


(I feel — or more of I know — that this area is not my expertise, do feel free to comment on what to improve and what I should take away or something like that. Thank you!)

Mary had a little Lamb

“Mary had a little Lamb”

Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule;
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned him out,
But still he lingered near,
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.

“What makes the lamb love Mary so?”
The eager children cried.
“Oh, Mary loves the lamb, you know,”
The teacher then replied.

When the assignment was given, for a second, I don’t really remember any nursery rhymes only until it was played in class. At first I thought it was really just sourcing for images that has die-die got to do with the rhyme but then I realised we can go out of the box. And I think the most interesting image I had was the Gargoyle. (hahahahahaha blame the lecture of Art History.)

These are the photos that was edited so far, and saved in Dropbox.

*still in the mode of searching for more interesting images to edit*


P/S: these images are sourced from googling Old Engraving (of insert word), Vintage (insert word), or mainly (insert what you want to find). I don’t really have the original website with me…..but I’ll put it up the next time!
