Project Duncan (Week 1)
So for the next project…Project Duncan…
I want to do something experimental…
I thought about this project over spring break some and initially was thinking of perhaps filming a scene from a screenplay/script I had written last semester in screenwriting (but after reviewing it I realized it was an ambitious endeavor for only 4 weeks…so I scraped that idea).
Over break, and as of late I’ve found myself on a David Lynch kick…(all break was spent watching Twin Peaks xP)
My inspiration actually came from a book my boyfriend showed my- “Distorted Nudes”, a book of photo-manipulations done by David Lynch when he was in the process of learning Photoshop.
I was bouncing around the idea of photo-manipulation…like in the book, but I decided that doing something manipulated/distorted and experimental with video would be a more interesting approach and a more beneficial learning experience as a whole.
Concept wise I was thinking of exploring distortion…distortion of reality, nightmares, fever, illness/hallucinations, etc. (the idea in part came from me being sick and feverish for half of the break…I’m only now recovering :l)
Ideas & Inspiration/Sources of Reference:
Here it is basically…all laid out for you…
So, I want to do an experimental video…
Explore distortion, nightmares, fevers, blurred reality…
Explore using and implementing compositing, green/blue screening, and other effects, in both Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro…
