Film Making

The brief to create a stills film led to my first foray with Final Cut Pro. The images are taken from sketchbooks and photos I took of my surroundings when my head was in a bad place some years ago. I picked out certain elements which work together as a sequence to give an overall impression of pain, despair and depression.

The storyboard fulfilled the second part of the brief which was to come up with a rough short film idea. Moving away from the gloom and doom of before, the story takes a humorous look at the different emotions which go on in the head of a man when a stranger decides to sit next to him in a near empty cinema.

So this is my first ever post in my first ever blog. 'citing! I'm gonna treat it like a pet or something and give it lots of attention, talk gibberish at it and generally feed it all the crap that's knocking about in my head looking for an escape route. Above all though it'll be a cosy little web home for all the creative projects I do as a student, starting with 'Journey'.

As first projects go, 'Journey' could have been worse. We were given the brief to document our journey to college in whichever way we liked, and mine somehow resulted in me hitching a ride off a pigeon to escape the scary storm I found myself caught up in before being flown through a weird vortex which is sucking the sky into its depths and then making it through to the other side where it is a lot calmer. I can't help but think it would make a great laxatives advert.
