The project required me to create a a visual sequence which will consider the continuity of storytelling. I was required to create a logical flow which the auidience would follow i.e explore rhythm and pace, stillness, motion,awkward and elegant.
In response to the brief I was required to create a Film using non linear editing of atleast two minutes exploring the theme of body and movement. After reading the brief I took into consideration what was required to be in the film including the use of a camera i.e width, height and depth on screen and off screen space.
The next step was for me to think of a plan and what I was going to film. I did some research on emotions and facial expression, this lead me to my idea of what I was hoping to achieve.I then chose an opening scene “I give you Flowers”. In this scene I chose a female character as the main character becasue females like flowers. The main character was played by my Cousin. In the first scene we see her being given the flowers and accepting them with a surprise and her face brightens with happiness and then the flowers are taken off her and her mood changes to being sad. The scene includes a soundtrack of classical genre by Mozart “Requiem”. For the second scene the flowers are thrown at her and with anger she picks them up and throws them back and after throwing them back she has a grin on her face. For the second scene I put four frames into one to make it look interesting when she is throwing the flowers back in revenge.
I had to think about what was going to happen next I chose dance. The reason for chosing this particular activity is because it is a way of escaping the previous life and she dances to release anger, aggression and frustration. I made another shot list of the Dance scene. For this I had to use two dancers. female and male.. I added the male dancer at the end because I just want the audience to see how interesting dance is and how it helps people be themselves when dancing.
