I am mostly undecided on whether I should employ paint to my services, or frame the pencil image with a thick black marker line before glittering out the background. Either way, I still intend to glitter out the background. It enlightens the image of applebeloved’s ego. Aptly.
I’m thinking of using the “primary” colours that is blue, red and yellow. Yellow, not green. Green because it is my favorite colour of all since I was a child. It would be too . . . exposing of my mind. I like a little . . . dose of delusion in my work.
So here are my images featuring the splendid dining table at home.
Jason ÷ Space = A Very Sad Me
Nature – Poetry = A Realistic Me
Stag + Doe = A Complete Me
Fitness X Meditation = A Better Me
What’s left to do:
- Subtitles (?)
Apparently the short clips are too large to be uploaded on OSS so here are some pictures.
Will explore the use of silhouettes.
I think i’ll use my camcorder for recording instead. The quality is quite horrendous when zoomed in.
More shadows. Weather’s good.
Was thinking of having the individual joined by another at the end of the film . . .
Have got to use the camcorder.
Don’t want the individual to make eye contact. It destroys the sense of private space.
(Transferred from Hard-copy)
A rough plan of what the lines should typically look like, and went on to explore from there.
Trying out on different types of paper with all sorts of tools. No limits!
Drying the papers and allowing the more inky ones to flow a little .. .
Using a fork and a syringe
Having experimented with multiple kinds of black inks/paints/dyes, i found that dried up chinese ink creates a shiny finish . . desirable.
To film individuals who appear to be “absorbed in their own world”, “unaware of their surroundings” or simply “enjoying the moment alone“, as if their existence is a separate entity from society.
To narrate their lives based on their actions, speculating on what they could be thinking or feeling at that precise moment.
To make it a more realistic experience, the footage will be accompanied by suitable music, depending on their actions.
Thus, the style of documenting this short film would be similar to that of wildlife documentaries, only . . . this one is anthropological, perhaps (?) Not that humans aren’t animals. Or wild.
We can be wild.
After a number of experiments (using new techniques) on many different types of paper (rice, calligraphy, newsprint, drawing, printing, glossy), I found the best techniques for each type of paper and made my “textured” pieces. The medium used was Chinese Ink. When dried, the ink becomes slightly glossy.
Fine grain Drawing Paper, Bottle Caps & Fingerprints.
Calligraphy Paper, Homemade miniature Paintball Gun.
Rice Paper, Pinkies & Spray Bottle.
MUJI Newsprint, Flick the Paintbrush & Spray Bottle.
Letter-writing Paper, Paintbrush & Pen (hand-drawn).
Newsprint, Dabbing with Toliet Paper.
