documentary shorts

April 27, 2012 by Jeffery in Projects

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.
