Screen shots of my video in editing stage (above), incorporating observational footage, reflexive interviews, and clips of the edits which Nic created for me. Mixing these together to build a picture of how we construct a message.
Stills from footage filmed of Nic in observational style.
I tried to get shots that give a ‘point of view’ feel. E.g. from behind the shoulder.
I captured shots from above to get an angle which shows the editor Nic’s movements.
I filmed shots of the screen to show the editing software being used to construct the films.
Close ups of hands clicking were to emphasize the physical process, so therefore very much an ‘outside’ act that happens separate from the filming environment.
I tried to get shots of the screen, where Nic’s face was also clearly reflecting to emphasize his gaze, and his opinions and judgements creating the film. I also got shots of Nic’s face, attempting to show him thinking about his choices, to emphasize a personal decision making process.
Interviews, edited over the mix of observational footage and Nics own edits allowed me to linkthe output edits Nic created, with the personal process. This was to mimic reflexive techniques seen in artists I had looked at.
Introduction credits to show the viewer clearly what I had asked Nic to do, to give them understanding.
