Here I combined some dance footage that I did in some site specific filming over the summer. I combined these with the train videos to test out the appearance of text and people within the image of the moving landscape to explore the possibilities of shapes and positions and which movements worked the best. I think that writing works however if vocals are already being added into it then I don't know if there will be a need for them. I like the layers of lines in the landscapes and how my body interacts with these at different moments coincidentally. I also like the fact that I'm not confronting the camera at any point. I don't really think that the use of ballet or overly stylised movement will be necessary as I would quite like the shadows to create pedestrian landscapes. I would also like to use flocking - where one dancer picks up from the dancer in front, creating a kind of canon affect along with the structure of the music but (HOPEFULLY) moving independently of the music.
The silhouettes hopefully will depict the silhouettes on Plato's Cave. I am interested in how this allegory is relevant in today's society in relation to media - how we only see what we are told because we are all too bombarded with technology and options - more than ever before. Our freedom is simultaneously a trap and a narrow path. I want to portray the flow and progression with the landscape and the music at the same time as portraying the flattened human form to add a more morbid, sad element to the piece.
