Assessment 2: Image 2

Scriptwriting proper.jpg
(Tsegay, 2017)

Through a camera and it’s lenses a narrative can become a film and have in some cases  more clarity when it comes to expressing the narrative in terms of visualising the feeling that characters can have in their story.

Gutkind expresses that the narrative written on paper exploits human emotion with the creation of a story in a nonfiction sense which is a huge aspect of creative writing (Gutkind 1997). This can be seen in how  a camera and a film set is able to bring a novel, book and script to life with the use of people, props and a set. A camera is able to process a story’s meaning and capture the essence of it along with giving the viewer moving imagery to follow without losing the main themes explored in the certain narrative. The darkening around the main object along with the use of contrast used in the image is to highlight the importance of the directors hand, the script and camera towards making a film.

  1. There is an old time feel to this image. The black background creates quite a contrast with the added elements. Honing in on the notion of clarity, it would appear that the photo itself projects the opposite of this (being out of focus). Perhaps to deepen the symbolism of film elements working together for the final creative product, the elements past the old fashioned camera could be brought into focus. This intentional foregrounding/backgrounding could help to bring clarity to readers for the life giving theme. Otherwise this is an interesting concept with clear links to a major and potential for expressive interpretation.

I like the way that the image flows through the script, camera and lighting rig as though these vectors intend to take you on a journey. Perhaps to deepen the symbolism of film elements working together for the final creative product, the objects past the old fashioned camera could be brought into focus. This intentional foregrounding/backgrounding could help to bring clarity to readers for the life giving theme. On top of this, it could be more enlightening of the informational value you intend, regarding the chosen zoning in the image (Kress & Van Leeuwen 1996). Otherwise this is an interesting concept with clear links to a major and potential for expressive interpretation.
