During this semester I want to form a solid foundation for a short film. From this I want to learn an array of skills that I referred to in my post making media, media making. I’m wanting to more specifically focus on the way the camera techniques create perspective.
After our writing exercise in week three (that can be seen below) I’ve considered filming a few topics. The one which has caught my fancy most is surrounding real people’s lives and their passions (in there elements – what they are passionate about.).
I want to avoid approaching it in the usual documentary interview style and instead take a more creative approach as to how I convey meaning through the camera. I want to explore various filming techniques that can convey a singular meaning. Possibly even test myself by filming a singular task in as many different ways as possible. These are all just ideas in a mixing bowl now, hopefully through further investigation and exercise these ideas and prompts can form a more clear and concise direction.
