YOUR PTBM TUTORIAL AGENDA
DATE OF TUTORIAL: Monday 10th October 2016
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DISCUSS IN YOUR NEXT TUTORIAL?
Please list at least 3 things you would like to talk about with your tutor:
1. The jump from displaying video work in the film and video room to creating video installation/photographic work.


2. Changes in my practice & artist statement. Not solely based on video but taking on forms of still imagery i.e. Photography (analogue). Cinematography/Directing being a huge step within practice.


3. Practitioners who came directly from Fine Art practices for references. And any other references which would relate to my change in practice.


YOUR NOTES AND REFLECTIONS (after the tutorial) HERE:

My ideas coming into 3rd year aren't a direct reflection of my personal being but better yet something that relates to personal encounters so creating something based on this may be best suited for me.

Disucssions included using colour to associate embeded cultures to create abstract premice. I was asked to pick a colour which I've been inspired by (green) to use as a starting point. It was suggested that I used a green screen as a starting point. It would also be beneficial as I am someone who pays attention to the conditions of light in controlled spaces. This will enable me to develop my practice technically and conceptually. I was told not to worry about borrowing ideas just yet, as they will develop into pieces which can/will differ from inspiration.

OMER FAST

One of the artists suggested for me to research upon was Omer Fast. He uses video art to portray "psychology of contemporary trauma, often relying on the blurring of memory and the retelling of actual events through cinematic convention." - James Cohan Gallery

RAPE OF THE BLACK WOMAN - BRUISED FACE

One thing I absolutely wanted to revise was the rape scene I envisioned for my film. I was unsure how to approach it seeing as it's a sensitive issue. To me, it felt unecessary to even include something of the sort in a revised film however I wanted to at least find ways to portray rape in a film without seeing the act. This will enable me to begin fuelling ideas for a refined and realistic film.


Below, I photoshopped bruises on one of the actors face. I applied a combination of red black and purple tones set with an opacity of 30% in order to create a bruised appearance.

TUTORIAL #1 - UNIT 6 FEEDBACK



My first tutorial for this unit was based on the feedback given to me for unit 6. I received generally okay comments but more so a well worded detailed critique on the elements used within the entirety of my outcomes. My final outcome was definitely what I described to be at the start of the project which generally set me back. I also spent a lot of time explaining myself as aposed to showcasing the film as you would in a film festival. My hinderance with actors schedules was definitely something that could have been avoided by setting a definitive schedule for filming as opposed to working here or there. The setbacks were ultimately outwaying the positive outcome and I was beginning think about avoided the project all together. My tutor suggested I revisit the idea and refine it as I had so much time, effort and research put towards the project that it would be a shame to let go of it that quickly. She was completely right! With that, I decided to go back to square one and think about alternatives to situations that previously occured with Unit 6.

Learning how to do things ON MY OWN

Attain skills a camera man usually has incase I he cannot shoot on certain days
  • A frequent problem I had was scheduling with the camera man so an aim of mine is to have full capability of using equipment for long periods of time.
Use an alternative storyline incase actors aren't able to shoot.
  • Again, scheduling with actors was a huge issue so being able to create something which could reflect the main idea, just without actors. A piece my tutor suggest I view was of a classmate who created a video piece that surrounds the theme of identity. 


Buy equipment to attach to a rig so I'm able to record dialogue without the use of an extra person/boom pole.
