So today in class we got onto our computers and began editing/continued editing our footage and audio (only footage for me cause I need to get on that audio business!!) So right from the start I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I wanted my end product to start and end. (screenshots below)
There was a single piece of footage missing, which I realised after I finished the filming and my previous blog post, however I have already gathered a second chance to refilm the missing pieces.
As Previously stated, my concept/obsession is “compression” or just “trapped” and I wanted to show people banging on glass and trying to escape. However, Robbie had a look at my footage and we talked about the relationship between the people that I had cast, and how initially the calm footage of the man and woman seem to indicate some form of relationship between the two and the boundary, as we as the fact that my footage also had a lot of framing which seemed to go nicely.
And there was the dilemma: do I cut certain footage out? Change my concept? Should I explore a bit deeper?? I did agree and liked the way Robbie saw the connection between people, and that the footage itself wasn’t simple humans attempting to escape the glass screen, but also the boundaries and curiosity that they have by peering into the camera. I did ultimately change my design (as shown below) but saved my original just in case!
