In a similar vein to the post on red, here’s one on blue.
I’ve been looking more at my interest in colour filters and how it can be applied to my work. Here are examples of red-pink filtered photography I have liked recently
And here are some general red-based images I have enjoyed recently:
Week one was about looking into artists that work through video. Here are some of the artists that were discussed:
One of the things that caught my attention the most during this week of the module was the masculine influence as all of the subcultures we looked at within this week were male based and often used the suit as a basis for their style choices. Whereas most people would consider style and fashion to be feminine topics, it was enlightening to realise just how much influence males had on the aesthetics of each subculture.
As my part in the group work, I have been told to look into films which either are told from multiple points of view, or whose characters stories intertwine with one another through the development of the narrative. The trailer to each film is there incase our team members would like a concise version of the film.
One of the key elements in the film Pulp Fiction is that the characters all have separate stories that intertwine through a concurrent series of events. This is quite like our idea of intertwining characters lives.
Elephant is one of my favourite modern films and a wonderful example of how one life event leads into the next. The way the stories in this film intertwine is beautiful, giving lead to a tragic conclusion. This is highly recommended viewing.
Requiem For A Dream
Requiem is filmed from different characters perspectives, showing how certain life choices can cause a brutal downward spiral. The use of perspectives is very interestingly done.
2:37 is often compared to the film Elephant in terms of directing style. The story is about different teenagers within an American high school whose lives all intersect one another and daw to a dramatic conclusion. Once again, a brilliant example of people lives intertwining.
Gummo is a film directed in a documentary style. It follows the lives of various people within a small American town.
The Tracey Fragments
The Tracey Fragments is the first film of it’s type. The film has been edited together using different angles and perspectives from the character. At any given time there is 2 or more perspectives on the screen giving a sense of delirium, of confusion yet clarity. This innovative style has given way to many other films using this process.
A modern example of a tv series using the concept that peoples lives are all intertwined, coming together in a brilliant conclusion.
