Fairy Tale concept series – main Gallery at bottom of post.
Cinematic – the first part of the module.
As a quick reminder of a previous post, our cinematic brief was to take three screen shots from a film of our choice and replicate them as best we could. I chose the film Fairy Tale and these are my three shots.
Cinematic & Negotiated Brief – Negotiated Brief
The negotiated brief part of our module asks us to “Synthesise the visual language we have developed in part one, cinematic, above, and apply it to our own interpretation to produce a series of six images. The series can be in our own chosen genre, mine being fine art conceptual, inspired by Duane Michals and Julia Fullerton-Batten.
The series title is ‘Growing-Up’ and portrays what happens to our vision if we allow ourselves to grow-up and lose the magical imagination with which we were born along with the ability to loose ourselves into the fantastical world of cinema.
My first three images are shown here. They follow the mood and ambience of the film by capturing fairies in a fairy den by a waterfall deep in the undergrowth. As you can see, I haven’t ‘grown-up’ – I hope I never have to!
