“Framing is a position of thinking.” – Daniel Frampton, Filmosophy (2006)
Hello, yes, why yes, I’m back on the grind again, but before I dive into the awkward* first sentence of blogging it should be said that I am profoundly motivated by the possibilities of my newest studio. From film to visual art, to anime to photography, cinematography has always appealed to me as a kind of aesthetic indulgence that can only be satisfied through making.
My earliest recollection of viewing something of film and video begins in the late night, where I wander into the living room to find the television left on. Back then the television had large, knob dials. I hesitantly sat on the couch and looked at the screen that flickered in the corner of the room. It was full of red, static and glitchy movement. It was then that I began my love for film.
This is why I want to reconnoiter my interest in creating visual works and showcase whatever I ascertain in On The Frame. I think the best place to start is at the beginning, after all, I always try to keep an open mind. So, what exactly is the frame? What elements of the frame will I focus in on? Will I draw upon a theme? All these thoughts are up in the air right now, and that’s okay, I’m just waiting for the space to settle as I go out and create.
*Was I smooth?
