As a start to the coursework looking at digital media for projection (as opposed to print), you have a Split Screen assignment, due on Thursday. You should use the youtube doubler to make a mash-up of two videos currently hosted on youtube. Remember that juxtaposition is key to this sort of approach -- how do the two videos relate to each other, when they're presented simultaneously, side-by-side. Connections can be on a formal level (shape, color, rhythm) or a content level (having one video "commenting" on the video beside it).
Please paste the URL of your doubled video in the comments section of this blog post; if you can't post comments, then email me the URL at my school address.
Here's the doubler:
Here are links to some of the split screen examples I showed in class:
