We made “films”

April 30, 2012

When I signed up for my film minor, I expected to make a lot of films. I only ended up making a handful, from the *award-winning* The Committee, to the painful, unfortunate Foundations of Production group project, “The Chase.” No, I don’t want to talk about it, unless you’re a licensed therapist.

In Cinematic Expression this past semester, I had the pleasure of working with a great partner on three different…”films.” All three required some very odd criteria. The first had to be 30 seconds long, made up of black and white photos, and not use diegetic sound (sound that comes naturally from the scene, dialogue, etc.) or music. The second was one minute long and black and white, but could use moving image music, but still no dialogue. The third was a minute and a half, and had to make use of color scheme, but still no dialogue. All three had to use a theme clearly and display different principles of design, like theory of thirds, balance, unity, etc.

The first two we made were fine, I suppose, but I’ll only post the final film here. We used a complementary color scheme, and went with a theme of the process of cooking, and related it to creation/destruction. It’s really deep!
