Assignment Three - A test run of the concept
As I said in the previous post, I'm going to 'test the water' with the video concept that I've come up with for Assignment Three. This assignment, as written up in the course notes, calls for the photographer to take photographs to 'support an editorial feature', and the notes suggest a detailed and focussed brief from the tutor. I havn't had that; my brief being, essentially, to present my take on Paris Photo 2012 and to challenge myself technically. I have worked on the magazine article layout approach, and will present that as part of my submission, I'm sure, but I've also been exploring the idea of an audio visual presentation. As a result, I've produced the following, approximately 50 second long, video. It has some rough edges, certainly, and it is only a structure for the first 1/3 to 1/2 of the finished piece. But I feel the need for some feedback. So, I'm going to publicise it on here and to my fellow students. If anyone has a bit of time to look at it and comment, that would be hugely helpful. I'm quite nervous about doing this, because I know it is definitely not as slick as it might be and is, as I said, unfinished ... but let's see what happens.
