quick movie for uni, I had to explore the use of sound, editing techniques and such to produce a narrative with Language as my thematic framework......

didn't really get a fancy camera to do it with lol... But eh, I got a Distinction for it so I'm happy

created my own sound track and used sound from this awesome site called freeSFX



here is my 150 word statement I had to hand in as well

I have chosen to do a narrative using "language" as my thematic framework. This narrative is about a Y generation male with Cabin Fever (cabin fever is a claustrophobic reaction brought on by long periods of isolation which causes mental instability).

To try and convey a sense of isolation I used a lot of long, wide shots. I mixed many different audio tracks containing a-tonal elements to invoke an unsettling feel, and I created inflections in the audio tracks to match sudden on-screen movements and transitions. I used fade and non-additive transitions between shots to establish location and also the passing of time within the narrative. Because the character is modern aged young male, I tried to incorporate certain stereotypical Y-generation habits and also a sense of immaturity to his overall persona which adds a slight dash of dark humor when mixed with the other elements of this narrative.

The narrative elements were influenced by early horror films such as Stanly Kubrick's "The Shining" and dark humor from films like Peter Jackson's "Bad Taste".

My narratives formal composition challenges audio-visual codes seen in modern film because of its more raw aesthetic approach in visual quality but also adapts in terms of its linear narrative structure (start, middle and finish).
