The advent of digital cameras has transformed photography, and now it seems it’s another technological evolution is taking place. The introduction of video recording on DSLRs is slowing leading a mergence between stills & moving photography. As students, we’ve been warned about the detriments of not staying ahead of the curb. Here are two short documentary films I made as part of school project at CPIT.
Being interested in people photography, the natural genre to jump into was documentary. During pre-production, an important process was interviewing the star of the film for information & inspirations. This was thoroughly enjoyable as it’s always rewarding to hear people’s stories & memories that shape them into what they are today. These anecdotes then help craft the tone & direction of the film. This collaborative nature and storytelling feature of film-making is definitely something I want to explore more in the future.
