In this post I will look at the story and cinematographic of my piece. I have been working on putting down the story on paper as well as make a detailed shot list. Having gone through a couple of drafts already, I feel that I have reached a point where I am just refining bits without retouching the main plot events. I am thus presenting down below the skeleton of the story, namely the story beats as well as the shot list in its current form.
In this post I will talk about feminist film theory as it is directly connected to the theme of my film. I will look at the ideology and how it can help me with my own production. In addition, by looking at “bad” examples of how woman are portrayed in popular movies I will generate a list of things that I should avoid. Finally, I will analyse a few recent animated films which are considered to have feminist elements in them and see how they can add to my own story.
