As you may have read in previous posts, I involve myself in a lot of filming sessions, to expand my knowledge with moving image technology, as well as, still imagery. In the past few weeks I have been helping out in lighting and sound recording sets for a member of HudMotion’s documentary on the Millenial’s, and their use of YouTube and gaming websites. This was both because I was interested in experiencing something new with film, where I could introduce my experience with lighting, which has come from previous studio experimentations. But, also because this is a subject I have looked at with my use of photography, therefore I am highly interested in how this could be interpreted using the creative field of film making.
The converse between filmmaker and subject was interesting because of the relationship between the two. Linking with my current practice on the citizens within globalisation, the subject was slightly nervous and on edge, where previous people were a lot more confident and had researched in to the subject they were speaking about. This may say a lot about both the operator and the subject, however it seems in post-production awkward tense atmosphere can be removed, unlike that of an image.
