So I have to produce a years worth of art, but I’m oddly enough not too stressed about it…as long as the meaning of my work feels accurate, all should go well.
I like words
I love visuals
but liberating to say the least
The visual elements of cinema are the most important becauseee
1) visual techniques mimic our mental process (flashback/flash-forward, parallel cutting, etc.).
2) they allow us to remove ourselves from reality, and place us in a alternate “tangible” world.
3) they trigger an unconscious, but heavy emotion (like PTSD) that forces us to uniquely empathize
All that’s been pushed upon me in college is “the dialogue is the most important tool,” which yes, but I don’t necessarily feel that what is said is the most important tool. I think the dialogue helps a director to visually relay a feeling, or to find those moments of silence where the subtext can be absorbed
…but that’s just me. Agree/ disagree? Does this make sense?
emptiness fascinates me
