Had a tutorial with Stuart today. Told him about my project and he said I was being very ambitious but it was good, and how i should have one film I focused a lot on which would be significantly better than the others one. It’s always better to have one strong idea and a few small accompanying ones rather than have lots of ideas and nothing to show. So we went through my film ideas, but time will be an issue. As I’m wanting to go into art direction Stuart thought this was a good project, and that I should stick to film as film is a good forum for art direction.
I saw a film by Alexander McQueen & Damien Hirst, where they use models with the movement of thin chiffon material.
I’ve decided to try and create a similar film using thin chiffon and using the template i have of the logo which I printed from the print room. I think this will work nicely, with the model wearing a simple white leotard to focus more on the movement of the material being a ballet dancer and ,there will be nice movement of the material. I have bought a metre x metre chiffon material from college and I will practice putting the logo on it tonight (not sure if I should use spray paint / fabric paint / normal paint) as i don’t want the colour to run too much on the fabric as the fabric is very thin and delicate. If i have problems with copying the template onto the material, I will alternatively use plain material and project the logo onto the model or the background, so the background will be visible as the model moves around it.
I have a studio booked for Monday 1-8 and have a test model for this, and also the model i will be using. Within this time slot, I hope to have the flag film, body paint film and the material film.
