Korsakow Film Analysis: Bright Splinters
Bright Splinters consists of eight rectangular shaped thumbnails with one being larger and the main focus to watch. Upon first clicking into the Korsakow film, an ambient and relaxing sound plays over the clips. The centre thumbnail is in colour and moves, whilst the other seven thumbnails are black and white and still. If you hold your cursor over the still thumbnails the image moves, if you click on the image this visual will become displayed on the large thumbnail frame.
The overall feeling is that of tranquility and calm. All clips have the consistent theme of light. There is something very beautiful about all of these clips. The clip captures light in the every day world. Moments that happen every day suddenly seem very important and meaningful as the ambient and slightly sad music overplays the clips.
I couldn’t find much that I didn’t like with these clips, I felt that they chose the right amount of thumbnails to choose from and I really liked the added aesthetic quality of the added music. I felt they had a good variety of the types of clips to choose from, from landscapes, to tea, to a fire pit, and to the people being filmed as if they didn’t know it.
In particular my favourite is that of the un suspecting old woman being filmed on an old tram. The light pours around her as the tram moves. Another clip that I like in particular is that of what I suspect is two people in love at the cinema. You can see the light from the ceiling on their heads and the wide cinema screen in front of them. The camera then pans out to the illuminated crowd in the rows around the cameraman.
