holy beans! it’s jelly beans! 288,000 of them! the incredible part is it’s all legit, stop motion music video. no computer graphics! with 22 months of production, 1,357 hours with 30 people and 1 still camera, isn’t it amazing how passion and dedication’s result is like this?! watch the behind the scenes video too!

And yet again, I don’t know how to start my blog post just like any of my previous blog entries. OH! first of all, If you can see yourself in the picture above, I want to say thank you because you gave me permission to post your pics online and of course for not running while I was trying to talk to you when I’m asking permission to take you a photo. haha

Hi, This is Esquella. As you can see, my blog consists of:

  • Photos of UC students
  • Cinemagraph/ GIF 
  • News and Updates about Cameras/ Camera Apps
  • Short films/ Music Videos
  • Polaroids

Some of you told me that I need to say more information about my posts/ how I do things and why take photo of this and that.. All of the answers can be found in my ABOUT ME page. 

CONTENT:

Here in Esquella, I often reblog things and posts more of my original stuffs. It was inspired by many famous photography bloggers and ‘tumblristas’ such as 

After watching this video, I got curios and wondered, how can Mr. Scott Schumann approach strangers on the street and ask them to take a photo. In every class that I’m attending, I always have my camera with me, just in case an interesting situation caught my eye. Luckily, In every person that I ask to take photos, all of them are kind enough to give me permission.
I often reblog stuffs from other people (unless it’s a camera update/ news) because I really enjoy posting original stuffs and if I am lucky, I sometimes get a like/ reblog from other tumblr users. I tried posting once a day but sometimes I just forgot or  there is nothing to post especially when I started doing the Project 7 videos. I also gained 57 followers for this blog with a total of 70 blog posts.


WATERMARKS:
You also can’t avoid bloggers who’s gonna steal some of your original posts (especially on tumblr, everyone wants to get more ‘notes’ for their posts) instead of “reblogging” them, people just grab that image and post them as an original post. even though I put a watermark on my pictures/ cinemagraphs, it’s inevitable coz it’s on the internet! I understand how big the internet is and you can’t do anything about it. Maybe he liked my picture so much he steal it from my blog? should I be flattered? or mad? ok fine, it’s just one time and I’ll let it pass.

CUSTOMISATION:
I’ve been using tumblr for 3 years before starting this course so I’m quite familiar with what’s going on here.. I used the ‘redux’ as my theme and customise it with a header and background. I also personalised the side bar and add some customised buttons for my other accounts such as vimeo, facebook page, twitter and tumblr (not available) and also the Ask Button and ‘About me’ PAGE.
TECHNICAL ISSUES:
My Google Analytics page were working until I accidentally changed/ erased something on my CSS page. At first I thought no one’s really looking at my blog and kind of passive about it. Until after 2 weeks or so, Amelia asked how is our analytics page going on and reminds us that we need to copy the analytics ID back into our blog once we change anything from it. But as of February ‘til March 14 I got an 81 total views of my page and pageviews of 180
I visited my analytics page and after fixing it, I only had 1 visitor and nil after that. I couldn’t fix it anymore and don’t know what is going on. and luckily it’s the only technical issue that I did not resolved.

SOCIAL MEDIA INTEGRATION: 
We are encouraged to use our Social Networking Media sites to promote and showcase our blogs, the easiest and most accesible social media for me is of course, Facebook! The esquella facebook page was created last 14th of March with only 21 likes, once I posted something here, it will automatically send a post to my facebook wall.. http://www.facebook.com/EsquellaBlog

PROJECT 6: GLOBO-normal Activity

TURN THE VOLUME UP & SWITCH YOUR LIGHTS OFF.

yep, posting this video at 3:00am because I want to be consistent with the theme (“scary-ish”…..but not really).. anyway, here’s my Project 6 video! A very different theme compared to the last projects.. the original plan is to ask my other roommate to do the project 6, but it turns out that she’s too busy, and I want to finish the project this week.. 

So we have this idea that we should make a spoof/ parody video of paranormal activity, but since we live in globo res, why not call it globo-normal activity! (clever ay?) lol anyway, here’s the final product, enjoy and if you live in the globo res.. yep, we have a security camera inside our flat.
