This term I want to challenge myself by making a short film, so that I can focus on exploring concepts and documenting them in the most efficient way. The themes could be inspired by the books I am currently reading.
I also want to explore the idea of preservation and reincarnation - inspired by my trip to Barcelona.
short film - content to be decided
reincarnation themed project - a series?
First week of Spring term: Michelle was absent, because she was too busy praying, waiting on her results from Ox (she got in, woop woop).
liked the mundane yet critical subject of ‘criticism’
close up shots – makes the viewers feel very intimate and deep within the set
heavily based on acting however
Six Dollar Fifty Man by Louis Sutherland, Mark Albiston
Content: childhood innocence?
really like how it features children – naivety, innocence, a fresh point of view introduced by the most innocent – the most vulnerable
frustration – bullying –
such ‘insignificant’ problems becoming of such big importance to the viewers
build up – plot twist – what is it trying to convey??
God View by Bill Lumby
Thoughts: ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
filmed with drone? (take that back, it’s made with a specially made body rig)– love the birds eye view – he seems like a game character link back to exhibition seen in Barcelona where the viewer was the game player? – having control of the story
plot twist – unpredictable
Samuel-613 by Bill Lumby
Content: story of a Hasidic Jew in crisis
frustration – identity – social pressure - inspiration for content? a personal story/experience?
Sugarless Tea by Ivan Kander
Content: narrative animated story
too illustrative in my opinion – fit for purpose though, showing reminiscence
The Sea is Blue by Ivan Kander
indifferent to plot
great stop motion - perhaps too time consuming for me to have an attempt
Meanwhile by Stephen McNally
animation worked great – highlighted/emphasised the characters
