My Video scholarship 2010 entry

WORLDWIDE | Thursday, 22 July 2010 | Views [220] | Scholarship Entry

My documentary is about the emotional experience surrounding death which has changed the way I perceive life. I was inspired by a phone call that told me two girls from my town had been tragically killed. It sparked the memory of receiving a call telling me an overseas friend had died in a motorbike accident.

Planning included - brainstorms, sketches linked to spontaneous ideas, storyboards and writing a journal. Continuity was an important consideration. I started with a skeleton plot which evolved over time. Once I had the foundations I worked my film around the music.

Challenges faced: Lighting, inexperienced camerawoman (mother), new high definition camera - not compatible with outdated editing software. After various trials a solution was found. Filming walking scene needed a moving camera – improvised ‘dolly’ by gaffer taping camera to bike pedal.

My ambition: to be a world-class filmmaker with aspirations to combine multimedia, environmental issues and cultural awareness to increase people’s knowledge and understanding of OUR amazing world. I’d endeavour to enlighten and stir people’s emotions while inspiring them to think responsibly and take action. My passion is film-making. An interview with abc3 inspired me further. I am self taught and therefore, desire professional mentoring.
