Some cinematic ideas!


I was inspired by Davy and Kristen McGuire on their piece called, "The Ice Book". (Here's their beautiful piece right here : http://vimeo.com/19348564) I really liked this piece because it was so simple, but so intricate and well thought out. To put simply, it took my breath away.

(and for some reason I'm attracted to lack of color/minimal color/muted palettes, so that's probably why I really liked "The Ice Book.")

This lead me wanting to do some projection work for my project.

I looked at the work of Jenny Holzer, who projects words onto buildings. This is an example of cinematic space because she's transforming what the "gallery" wall is. She's taking an existing structure and making it her own.

Then, I fell in love with the idea of "Light Graffiti".

I think this is an example of cinematic space because naturally, you can't see the speed of light. But by bending the camera's abilities, you're able to see the light transform a bridge into an awesome monster like thing, or a piece of writing that has washed away with the sands of time.


Then I ventured off of "light graffiti" and thought of doing some perspective scenes.

What I really like about this piece is the perspective change. Also, it's narrative without being too obvious, which is something that I would like to do for my project.  Because you're forced to look into a paper tube, it's changing how you view things, hence cinematic space.

Tilt shift photography is the ultimate play on cinematic space. By digitally editing the photo, it alters the perspective to show miniatures! How cute. :3

Pinhole Photography
Pinhole Photography (I think) is the most time-capturing and the best example of cinematic space. Because you have to keep the shutter open in order to catch the moment. This is also an example of cinematic space because I think one of the key elements of cinematic space is movement, and pinhole photography captures  movement in this ghost-like manner.
