Cinematography 1: Serious Issues

There is no story in today’s show. There are only serious issues which reflect the shameful past.

With the set of objects in the films sending to who they should belong to, meaning has been created, as part of the curing process.

There is a lack of scripts, because scripts might destruct the somberness.

The seriousness can transfer itself into happiness, depending on how people deal with the past, and manipulate the present meaning.

The happiness is the theme of the next show.

To be continued.

Project Work: On Defamiliarisation as Strategy for Creative Practice

We were presented with 2 strategies for creative practice:
Be reflexive: be reflective and responsive about the
meaning of your own ideas and experiences
Defamiliarise: consider alternative perspectives on your
ideas and experiences.

It’s a recurring theme, last times discussed during the documentary module, where it was presented as a valuable approach and the opposite of the wider used strategy of becoming familiar with the subject.  I guess they’re equally valid but produce different outcomes. Here is an example, when a practitioner, this time photographer Hans van der Meer, applied the 2 strategies to a subject he was already familiar with(Sunday football), the end result being a totally different approach is which he seems to question everything that previously  looked familiar.

Documentary Practice revised

I’m back with the edit I wanted to do in first place

Documentary Practice

First assignment deadline has arrived! Sneak preview of first sequence, edited amidst confusion regarding the brief (shot list, sequencing, editing). It was edited to be as close to the brief as possible. Personally I would’ve done it differently, maybe I’ll re-edit it.

I just really hope the next assignment will be more clear.

Documentary of the Day

One of my favourites, worth watching. The fly on the wall…

Slow Cinema

 

Documentary of the day – Man with movie camera

It was voted the best documentary of all time:

There are several versions with sound out there, I think this one is the most true to the spirit if the film.

On Editing

 

Maybe it doesn’t necessarily apply to documentaries, but still great example on editing techniques
