Vertical/Poetic Video Ideas
I was really inspired by Maya Deren and her use of the camera to show the same figure in different places at the same time. I will use this technique to represent different personas of a character and his/her perceptions of these personas. I want to defy time and space with this piece to emphasize the idea that the viewer is witnessing the character's thought process and feelings. I plan to use doors, windows, and mirrors as recurring symbols. These objects reinforce the idea of perception and act as passageways into the different personas.
