“A Post-Photographic Portrait”
The culmination of this module will be the production of a “post-photographic portrait”.
You should source and develop a subject whose story you tell through the production and broadcast of a “A Post-Photographic Portrait”; a phrase that we will investigate and clarify over the course of the module. Your decisions throughout this process should build upon and further develop the work we’ve begun in creative workshop and throughout the lecture series. This process should be evidenced explicitly and succinctly on your blog as well ( a 500 word reflective summary would do the trick).
I have wanted to do my task on archives and especially the cinema archives in Coventry. I want to use found images, sounds, stories to over lay and make a transmedia photo film. I have used Google Earth and sounds to make this really short clip. I am going to add my own content too.
I created a video of Theatre One. However, it struck me- I have a lot of material but not a ‘story’ to tell. Records of what is left and archived are very dry. If I wanted to explore a person, I would have to pay for census reports etc with no guarantee of a story that I am in a position to tell.
