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.
In this post I will look at the story, characters and setting of the film as well as its “about-ness.” Through video examples I will attempt to convey the”feel” and aesthetic of this production. It is important to note that part of what is written here, I have already mentioned in my previous entries, but for the sake on convenience I will include the most important material here as well. For a more detailed version of the backstory of my idea and characters please look at my previous blog posts. By the end of this post the goal is to have a concrete idea of what this film is about as well as how I am going to deliver it.
In this post I will look into various adaptations of the Little Red Ridding Hood tale in order to explore the theme further and also find ways to evolve my story, characters and environment. Below I present various examples from live action, animation and video games. Using these reference points I will discuss which elements I can borrow and how to adapt them in order to fit my theme.
In this post I will cover a wide variety of topics, namely the inspiration, concept and direction my project has taken. This discussion has started with the animation studies module where I first initiated this concept. As result some of the things that I will present here chances say I will have already mentioned in my essay already but this post will serve as ground zero of all the thoughts and information I have on this idea. As a result I figured it would be best to present all the research I have done even of it overlaps at certain points with the animation studies module. This post will probably be long so buckle up and enjoy the ride!
Alas the saga begins…
With this post I will make a start in discussing my end of the year film. Throwing in a retrospective of my summer this far and layout the foundation for the pre-production of my third year film.
