Soft Cinema

okies well now lets talk about idat 104. We have already done a presentation worth 10% of the final mark and written an essay worth 50% of the final mark. Now we are to create a piece of film that doesn’t have a narrative and it generated in a random order.

We have been given a DVD that has clips from the Plymouth television archive the clips links with the subject of space. we have o take these clips place them in a database and create movie piece that does not have a story to follow if you want to say that.

It is work in groups of four and my group once again is the cool kids : Vicky, Kat and Ollie.

We have meet up for tutorial and thought on how abouts we could do this. We have had the idea that will will link the clips with the theme of emotions, we will watch the DVD and give each scene a certain emotion that we get from that clip. As-well as using the space clips to use old fashion black and white movie clips, to protray that as-well as science and technology happening in the world has the same emotion as peoples every day lives.

Another factor we want for our movie is that all the screens are in black and white so that the viewer is concentrating more on whats is going on in the film rather then their eyes being focus on different colours in each scene. Another reason for the black and white idea is that you don’t really expect this such of movie clip form a coloured film and you feel that it is like a modern day film with a story and narration to follow, plus it ties in with the art photography.

We will beign using a database in access to store the films and Visual Basic to generate the random numbers to place the clips in a new random order. which will link to whihc emotion the user wants to see.

We are just writing up a action plan and the content of what the actually doing for this project that i will post up soon. But for now i am going to research on some good emotional black and white films.
