TORU

Other Cinema Project by Eduardo Jed Camara

While filming, I realised that the script doesn’t put enough focus on May and Toru’s relationship. Therefore it will be hard for the audience feel sympathy for May and understand her situation. So I’ve been thinking of a way I can show more of their relationship. I will definitely add more shots of May and Toru having fun together, but apart from that I came up with the idea of having a quick montage of various photos of May and Toru together to show all the fun times they had. Fortunately I have a lot of old photos of my sister(the lead actress) and my dog together, so I can use these photos instead of having to take more. 

For the style of the montage I’ve decided to go for the same style as in the Marvel Comics intro shown in the video link. This style was also used in the film Shame. Mine would be a little bit slower to allow the audience to see more of the photos. It looks like a really quick and effective, as well as stylish way of having a photo montage. 

Obviously this isn’t from a Wes Anderson film, but the photo is a parody done in the style of Wes Anderson. I like how the text is a huge part of the image and isn’t just a small subtitle.

I love the way Wes Anderson uses typography in his films. It looks like it comes straight out of a childrens book, which is exactly what I’m going for.

My second post didn’t really post properly, so I’m just reposting this video again as it’s a huge influence for my project.

I’ve been looking at films that use subtitles/onscreen text in interesting ways. I love the way Danny Boyle used subtitles in Slumdog Millionaire. Instead of boring subtitles he made them colourful and places in interesting positions

I was thinking about films that use onscreen text with their films to give me some ideas on the visual style I can use with my film and the films of wes anderson came to mind, particularly The Royal Tenenbaums. I love it’s use of colours and how it looks like it’s come out of a childrens book which is really appropriate for my theme.

A short film that inspired me with my project

This is a short film that sort of depicts the kind of style I want to go for with my film.

I like the way in which the narrator describes everything you see on screen as if she was reading from a book.

That is the kind of writing I plan on having in my film.

The visual style is also similar to what I want to go for, with it’s use of shallow depth of fields to give it a fairytale like quality.

My first blog post

I have decided to start a blog to accompany my portfolio for my other cinema project. On this blog I will post video clips and still images that inspire me with this project.
