4D Alter Ego Final Video


Thought process
I managed to change the story in order to put it into a more current context and less of science fiction. I have decided that since Nancy Drew is a detective in the movie and she has always believe in justice, while Newt is a wizard who came to New York in the movie on a mission to release one of the creatures to its natural habitat. There is some sense of justice in Newt as he believes that by releasing the creature to its habitat even though it is a rescued creature, it is the right thing to do. Thus, I have  decided to put both Nancy and Newt in a scene of an interrogation where Nancy is interrogating Newt on his purpose and reasons in causing harm to the society, which she thinks wizards do.However, in actual fact not all wizards are what she thinks as Newt is a trainor who trains wizards to do better for the society , however, it is just that some wizards were out of his control and they start to bring harm to the society.

Reference Video

I got the idea of having an interrogation scene based on one of the scenes in Newt’s movie Fantastc Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt is being interrogated by the Director of Magical Security of the Mafical Congress of the United States. In the video, he found out that Newt has come to New York and released many creatures, exposing the identity of wizards. However, Newt denies that fact as he has actually come to New York to release one of his creatures to its natural habitat. However, Newt did not mention this fact to Graves and thus leading to Graves ounishing Newt.

By using this idea of false accusing and the punishment, I could see how my film could have some of these potential ideas. Since one of my character is a detective who believes in the sense of justice and every criminal in her books would end with the criminal getting what they deserve.

Story plot

Newt, a wizard trainer for all wizards has been capturing wizards all across the world and training them in his school so they could use their powers for good to the society. However, not all wizards are good wizards who would just follow his lessons. Some wizards would grow insane once they realise the potential of their powers and use it to cause harm to the society. This has been occurring for many years and Nancy Drew, the police Detective has been tracking down who is the mastermind for all of these harm in the society and has finally caught her, Newt Scamander.

However, it was not his fault. Newt told Nancy that those were wild wizards and had come to bring them back to prevent those wild wizards from growing further insane and so that the society would be safe. Unfortunately, Nancy still does not believe in Newt as she believes that all criminals would have to get what they deserve and sentence him to prison instead.

My point in this whole video is to show how justice is served and who is in the right and wrong. Was it Nancy who thinks that all wizards are bad just because she saw some evidences of how people are cursed by many witches and wizards? Or was it Newt who was coming back to the real world and taking those wild wizards who cause harm to the society and train them for the better so they could bring better to the society?

My Final Video


I think that filming does need to involve a lot of technical work especially when working with a DSLR camera. It was my first time working with such camera. Luckily, I had a partner who was an expert and she could help me in fulfilling the angles I wanted based on my storyboard.

As for the scouting of locations, I have decided to go for an enclosed room that could fulfill the atmosphere of an interrogation scene. Thus, I wanted to look for one of the meeting rooms, however, it was closed to all students. Thus, I had to go to somewhere open more for students which is the computer labs.



4D Foundation I

I used substitution for this photo as I wanted to tap into the sub consciousness of people when they are dreaming. Thus, I have substituted the bed with a dreamy looking background and the subject is sleeping on the clouds which represents how she can be carried away in her dreams as she is not thinking too much when she is dreaming.

This is done by subtracting the thickness of the paper which is to suggest how much paper we are using for our own use but could harm the number of trees in the forest. The subtraction of the pencil lead is to suggest that if there were to be lesser trees found on earth today, we will soon find ourselves to have very little paper for our own use.


I added the thorns at the side of the phone which is showing the Pokemon screen. This is trying to show how dangerous the game can be as it can turn into an addiction that may lead to negative consequences such as a distraction for students’ academics, lesser social interaction among people, although they are physically together, they are not communicating face to face.
The use of superimpose for this photo is to emphasise on how parents act as a support for us as they were the ones who raised us up throughout our lives. Thus, I have come up with this idea on how parents act as a support for our wings before we can “fly” or grow up. In this image, I have included my father’s hand to be placed under my arms. The shirt that I was wearing would be the resemblance of a wing and which can also help convey my idea of how parents act as a support for us before we ” fly “.

Overall, I find that this project to be very interesting and it is a new experience for me. This is because I have not used photoshop before and I had difficulty doing this work. Thus, I actually took a very long time to finish this work. However, the idea of using the four techniques is very interesting because I never knew that these techniques can be incorporated into photography as I am only exposed to photography without photoshop. Thus, throughout this project, I am able to include my own personal thoughts and opinions about certain issues and convey them into a certain manner instead of just capturing that issue alone which can just fulfil that message but makes the image less interesting. I have also learnt a lot about the techniques which can be used in advertisements to encourage more consumers to buy their product or to fulfil their message about a certain issue.
