Alice, I would like to see the light go to a good home as I am sure you would provide for it. I guess the thing to do is to come and have a look at it. We are in the middle of town, Thursday, Friday, or the weekend would suit me best.

Thanks for the info and debate in both cases. I am looking to sort this out for my own workflow, being not happy with what I have done so far, so good to see this topic come up on the forums.

Thanks Rowan,

Good to get some details on this - curly stuff.

Movies / Terrence Malick

Well the director I have been watching this week has been Terrence Malick, another wirter director. I saw Days of Heaven a few weeks ago and this week I saw the THin Red Line and New World. All have won awards for Cinematography. He uses some interesting techniques such as shooting a lot of footage of the natural world and then integrating it into the editing process. He also uses an interesting voice over technique which is different to any other use I have seen of it. He also tackles interesting themes. In New World, concepts of truth and allegiance to partner, tribe etc and in The Thin Red Line, the nature of life and death, spirituality, good and evil. The most philosophical war movie I have seen with a good cast. Trademark of these films is beautiful photography that is often shot in natural light at interesting times of day. I feel that these type of films will add depth to my animation and visual story telling skills.

Movies / Tarkovsky

I have been watching Tarkovsky films lately and I am happy to rave about this Russian director to anyone who will listen. Some of his films: Solaris, Stalker, Andrei Rublyov
He structures his films with interesting juxtapositions and allows the story to be told non linearly and visually. Amazing cinematography. He has written a classic about directing called Sculpting in Time - a really interesting read if you want to find a different way of telling a story to the conventional understandings. His way of making films allows for more than a simple story to be told - that allows for glimpses of the inner workings of the characters and to reveal metaphysical and philosophical concerns.

There are some good DVDs in the library. I wish there were more older classics but I am finding some interesting things. For example, this week, Terrence Malick movies Thin Red Line and The New World...

It is always good to have two electives as possibilities because timetable clashes are common with electives.

I think photography has some interesting possibilities and I am heading that way. Worth talking to someone in the Photography department about what is in each subject as the subject outlines are pretty vague.

I see there are a couple of illustration subjects, there is a scriptwriting subject, and some of the TV stuff might be good as well... Too many possibilities.

Maybe a solid way to argue against the previous barriers to it is to say - give us an opportunity to become connected - by having a project that can provide a sense of ownership and belonging - which will generate more respect etc.  The school has the opportunity to support a positive loop here.
