@ The Anatomy Of Life & Death

Continuing from my previous post on extending a case studies, here is more details of what I am going to propose. Read here for my previous post.

I have chosen to use Vladimir’s Karst documentary as my case study of choice and I am going to extend this film into an exhibition/installation. The motive of the exhibition is simple, Read more →

Very good analysis + idea for an exhibition, Kamarul. This is your asg2, do speak w prof Vladimir for his input, then format it as a standalone text, submit by 23.4 and you're done.;) PS to answer your question... honestly, i'd love to visit the actual house, speak with the people who built it... the next best thing is certainly visiting your exhibition in Singapore, but NOT because it's 'only 15 minutes'... time is not the issue, but quality and passion are crucial for any work to inspire.
Yes, you are right. Time is not an issue actually if the exhibition is in good quality and people want to stay longer. But I just wanted to get the point across which is that you are able to pick as much as possible by watching the full 1 hour documentary or going through the exhibition, which might or might not be a shorter duration for different individual. I am emailing him now and waiting for his respond. I would love to visit the actual house as well actually! Hence, the layout of the exhibition would mimic the layout of the ambassador's house. Can I include screenshots in the final PDF File? Or the paper need to be just all text?
hi K, sorry saw your questions only now, and after reading your asg2 report. Your presentation is just right in terms of detail, well done.

What resources were needed to create this film? were there sponsors for this?

And most importantly

Karst: questions

@ jkoo002

Why was the decision to have no voiceover made? That would have made the story and context much clearer.

How did you find out that a house was going to be built here?

Why choose to tell this story from so many point of views, rather than just follow one perspective from start to finish?

It was such and interesting and unusual topic what inspired you to create a film/documentary like this one?

What was the most challenging thing you encountered on during the process?

How long did the film take to create in total? Including the prep, filming and editing?

What was the inspiration and motivation for this idea, why did you start making this documentary?

While in the filming process, will filmmaker affect the peoples who was being filmed in the documentary? If so, how to try to reduce the impact of them and better working with them?

@ K W

A very interesting and clever film that captures a peaceful and seemingly untouched environment in some aspects. I also like how the different relationships are captured. Below are some questions:

How did you come up with the idea of making this movie? Did you have any personal relationship to the “karstic landscape” before you started to shoot the film? What was the most difficult part, planning, filming Read more →

@ Artefactually Lost

Something that really caught my attention during the film is that while it’s styled to resemble a documentary, the characters in the movie have never looked into the camera or overlaid a narrative to explain their discourse.

My first question:

Were the characters and their actions scripted in general?Follow ups: What was your instinct that you know you have to capture the moments if they Read more →

@ Ting Chou

After watching the film Karst (2014), there are several points that I am interested to talk about.

Does the concept of planning and building the house  applies to other project planning as well?

Is it trying to tell the relationship between the people and the house?

What is the most challenging part in the production of the film?

@ The Anatomy Of Life & Death

A very clever use of visuals and human conversation to tell a story. It makes me wonder whether those people who build the house is also hard as Karst. Here are my questions.

Is there any issues in terms of environmental in building a home in the middle of an undisturbed landscape?

Are the workers building the house from Montenegro or Goran Read more →

@ Real life

What was the hardest part in planning for the film? How long did it take to film? Did it go according to what was planned? If not, how did Vladimir go around it.

Karst, terrain usually characterized by barren, rocky ground, caves, sinkholes, underground rivers, and the absence of surface streams and lakes.

I really liked how the title was very direct Read more →
