How can lacuna be visually explored and represented in the context of public human interaction? Gathering stimulation from the film, sound and comedic techniques of 20th century satirists, depict the empty space we see in the learned tension of societal communication.

Taking our ideas from the last meeting, we’ve decided to take off by sketching out a storyboard with our concept.
Basis of the concept:
Two squares framing two different scenes within one rectangle boundary of black space. A relationship blooms from stranger to close friends while simultaneously showing each brush stroke drawn for every time they become closer. Each brush stroke would be in a certain colour; starting off with pale grey, to navy blue to bright yellow as the result of a closer relationship formed.

The Science of Sleep can be summed up a film that revolves around the story of a man, Stephane, moving to a new place and having different life experiences such as how he feels about his job and his relationships with people. He takes his horrible life experiences and reflects on them every time by warping himself during his sleep and into his own world of craft and imagination. Through this reflection, he is able to do what he can’t do in real life, such as screaming at his boss and giving the love letter to Stephanie (his neighbour). He gets paranoid of turning his imaginary actions to life as the film progresses further. These struggles are reflected in a way they are exaggerated in all scenes of his imagination.

Our group approach to planning Task 2 was to decide our roles, experiment and create a storyboard together. We’ve discussed that it’d be best if we all gathered together and focused on filming together so clashes of different ideas wouldn’t happen and everyone would have an experience with every role as we weren’t particularly strict on what we wanted to do. As part of the aim this week, we were to build a base storyboard to get us started on what we wanted to film.
How people pick up and understand sound is varied in so many ways depending on when they started being deaf. A way to visualise sound to deaf people is through the use of rhythm, shape and colours. An example of a well-known form of visualisation is the Synesthesia. According to Baron-Cohen & Harrison 1997, “Synesthesia is a process whereby one sense is used to interpret and give meaning to information garnered through another sense” It is the act of translating sound to sight.

During STUVAC, there was a huge focus on getting our concept concreted. Our group wanted to push more into the idea of our initial idea “invisible space” so that lead to “interactions between people and the unspoken feelings between strangers (Anxiety)” to be our main concept. Continue reading “W6 3 scenes (group work) and experimental imagery and film with textures.”
“Lacuna is comfortable – it is a space to breathe and understand what is going on within it or surrounding it. It is the transition that defines one scene to the next. It is what completes a puzzle.” —Karina Huang.
A quick exercise was undertaken as our group’s starting point to Task 2(B) to describe how we feel individually about Lacuna. This was my brief interpretation of Lacuna. While I came up with this interpretation, I thought about Lacuna acting as space that can’t be seen but is present. A very strong effect that may be worth exploring was overlays and glitch effects. From past experiences, I’ve seen them being used to visually describe something briefly and act as a bridge from one scene to next. It’s often something that appears during scenes that need to communicate rapid movement, distortion and mystery. This makes room for the audience to think about what is happening in their own interpretation. A mood board has been created to describe the type of techniques mentioned.
As a class, the aim of this exercise was to create a kinetic model that would operate smoothly across from one end of the table to the next.
Experimentation with silk, mesh, CD reflection and cellophane to create an ambient mood. Goal of this exercise was to project movement on an object as a group.
La Jetée is an experimental travel film based after the period of the World War. It was a story of a man undertaking an experiment. This experiment took him back to his childhood memories that seemed valuable and influential to his life.
