I wanted my film to be about video game obsession and escapism from reality into the world of video games. To do this, I decided to mix real world footage using the footage shot using a Go-Pro, as well as footage recording using a variety of first-person video games. This was used to give off the feeling that the character is losing is mind, not knowing what is reality and what is virtual reality. However, to have both real world footage and video game footage in a film, I had to make a transition between them for the viewers to know what he’s going into the virtual world. I was able to do this by created a glitch/television static effect.
This film is about a young university student who is obsessed with video games so much, that he finds it difficult to tell the difference between reality and virtual reality.
Life Of A Model
The documentary ‘Life of a Model’ provides and insight into the modelling industry. Interviews with three models discussing their time in the industry.
The main argument I wish to communicate to my audience is whether or not the modelling career is as easy as just getting pictures taken of yourself whilst doing different poses.
A short film used in my final year exhibition (2016). I used Minecraft to show something going out with the new, and in with the used since this was the theme of the exhibition. Since I am very fond of video games and had already created a project used the, I felt that this could be a another project in which I use them. Using my graphics card’s recoding software, I was able tor record myself playing Minecraft.
Eyes Of Plymouth
Eyes of Plymouth was an experimental time-lapse film for a university project. Myself and my friend attempted to find beauty within the city of Plymouth and recorded timelapses in these locations. The time of year was perfected as well, as it was late autumn so the colour of the leaves were incredible.
Am I Dreaming?
Am I Dreaming was my first major project since starting university. The film is about a deranged teen who wants to rid the psychotic visions she’s been experiencing, but is faced with the dilemma as to whether the nightmare she’s been living up to now is reality or a dream. This project gave me ideas to follow on since: Game Over a film about obsession and depression is one of the examples.
