Ideas 27 & 28
Idea #27: Make a short film/doco of interviews of my friends talking about what makes them unhappy. I think this idea is partly inspired by reading this today, and by the familiarity of feeling unhappy but being unable to justify it because I know many people are unhappy about far worse things.
Idea #28: I was visualising the aesthetics of this unhappiness film and an idea came to me from watching this video clip today. I love the quick back and forth edit when she lifts and hides behind her shirt. I already love it when the camera focuses on interviewees’ gestures, but it could be extra interesting to emphasise gestures with similar stuttering edits to electronic music worked into the film soundscape.
