Now that I have absorbed and digested the excellent critique I received today (of which I was lucky to have three level 7 students and two tutors attend ) I will summarise here what I am going to implement over the next few weeks –
- Create a narrative and draw up storyboards.
- Record ambient sound: waves at beach, river flow with rocks splashing, feet running, children talking and laughing…
- Film the children doing the mundane: eating breakfast, bathing, sleeping..
- Film some more symbolism – lock and keys, filing metaphors for memory and dreams.
In the future when filming I could leave the sound on encase I want to use it? – food for thought.
