Section 1 – rationale
Coming into this course, I knew little about film making. Since then I have developed my understanding of what goes into a film, whether it’s a full feature film or a short film. I have gained understanding of camera work, editing and how to layout a scene. I have also found a real passion when it comes to cinematography. This has influenced my project proposal as I want to find out more about it and develop my skills.
Section 2 – project concept
My aim for this project is to create a short film that reflects the same style as a Wes Anderson film, specifically the cinematography of Robert Yeoman. I will research Robert Yeomen,s style of cinematography in Wes Anderson films by watching and analysing scenes. This will help me develop a better end film. I anticipate producing a short film similar to the Style of Wes Anderson films. I donT think I will achieve a polished replica as a lot of money and time goes into making them. I will use primary and secondary resources. For secondary I will watch his films, read already existing essays, and watch other people’s films that replicate Wes Anderson films. For primary, I will do my own research by making questionnaires,
Section 3 – Evaluation
I will document my progress throughout the process: logging changes; difficulties; ideas; and decision making. I will do this by making blog posts and keeping it updated overtime there is a change or development.
Section 4 – project Action Plan and Timetable
As a group, we made a rough time frame in which we need to work by.
After this, I then made a schedule specific for me and what I need to do over the next three weeks.
It is important to make a schedule because it helps you keep organized and all your deadlines of time. For me, it’s important because I think I can get frustrated and lose focus. To have a schedule means I know what point I’m at and what I need to do. Every week I’ll make a more detailed plan of what I need to do, making sure I get everything done I need to do.
Section 5 – proposed research sources and bibliography
For research I will use primary and secondary research.
- Questionnaires – I will make questionnaires to research. This is helpful because you can
- Films – For research, I can watch Wes Anderson films analyze the films. I can take screen shots and clips from the films. Then I can write about them and break them down. For example, how they are one; how to re create them; colours; camera work.
- Books – I can read books on cinematography or lighting. I can learn tips on how to light, set out and colour scenes.
