Evaluation

Our brief was simply described as developing the college’s film club. Our target audience was mainly students attending Stanmore College who wanted to watch a movie in a relaxed social environment but guest to the college would be welcome. We identified this by eliminating other possible recipients of the film club as unpractical( like members…

Lighting

  For this scene, I aimed for a mid-key using a three-point lighting set up and a soft light diffused in the background. I needed the light behind and to the right of the subject due to the dark wallpaper of the wall not allowing any visual separation. 

Topic Problems

Three days before shooting was to take place the interviewee canceled due to illness. Clearly a serious problem I frantically searched for other people that I could interview on the topic but no one was available at such short notice. With someone in my class focusing on education I considered ways I could adapt such a…

Line Boil

Line boil is the present wobbling of animation when objects on screen are being redrawn despite them being still most traditional animation houses saw this as a glaring imperfection. Though some recent animation has made it a common trait, for example, the red bull animation (Red Bull, 2011) has exaggerated line boil despite having the use…

Scenes

After watching Coraline  I’ve picked out three scenes that I believe capture tones of the movie adequately. First is Coraline going through the tunnel to the other world. similarly to Alice falling through the rabbit hole to wonderland this is a very important part in the movie. Second was Coraline walking off the world. This was one…

Coraline Promotional Campaign

  The promotional material for Coraline was extensive. With the run-up to the movie’s release, the promotional team sent 50 handmade boxes to popular bloggers in order to create intrigue for the film.   The boxes also contained passwords that unlocked online films that the blogger’s readers could use. This would definitely increase online followings of the movie….

Promotional Opitions

With the Promotional Campaign of Coraline being as extensive as it was I thought that I’d utilise a recent feature that YouTube has implemented on the website, 360-degree video. Ouji 2[1] a recently released horror film used this feature to create a trailer experience for the movie. It was set in an area that the movie…

Documentary structures

The structure of documentaries vary slightly depending on the mode of documentary but it is widely accepted that, like narrative film, documentaries follow a three arc structure. The first being there to ask a question and grab the audiences attention. In the Todorov narrative theory this would be the introduction of the equilibrium and working…

A change of topic

After my grandmother declined my offer to be the subject of the documentary due to illness I turned to other forms of prejudices in society and recalled my mother telling me a about her drawing a tree in primary school but spelling tree wrong. She explained that she was constantly bullied for having dyslexia throughout…

Cont. Life inside ‘Islamic State’

After further research into the Life Inside series I’ve come across the animators website [1] The artist explains that he uses a hand painted animation technique but stays vague as to whether or not its digitally painted or painted in a physical medium. John Neal was the Today producer of the project. The project was…

Life inside ‘Islamic State’

This short documentary web series published on the BBC Radio 4 youtube channel follows the story of a man living in the city Raqqa as a brutal jihadist group sweep through and takes control. While it could be possible that the animator used the traditional method of animation to create the visuals the use of 2D…
