The moving image has evolved in formats from films, videos and digital formats. Films can be more organic whereas others such as video could be more practical. Technology plays a key role in the development of new formats, this micro-video essay travels back in time to explore the evolution.
The film is a combination of interviews, historical footage, informative narration and graphics. For such a broad topic and by starting with a lot of research, the postproduction phase was key to summarise the different formats of film, video and digital formats
The project did give me a great opportunity to collaborate with external stakeholders. Working with a cast and a narrator, I had to be prepared with scripts and questions and plan filming sessions and rely on their recording skills and technology. Collaborating with ACMI provided me the experience of working with a real client, therefore I had to develop a project following their requirements and brand guidelines.
