Task 4: Peer Evaluation: Naomi Meli trailer evaluation on: ‘The last minute’  

 

When I first heard the story of this trailer, I was keen on it immediately as the uncanniness of this trailer was the uncertainty.

 

Throughout this trailer we see a sequence, a child growing up into a lady, I think this trailer brakes many stereotypes and is very unfamiliar, as to seeing the usual a man finding a new woman or vice versa.  This trailer was showing the love she had for God and for her boyfriend.

 

The use of colours in this trailer I believe were bland ones to keep the focus on the story rather than the visuals themselves, and there was one particular shot where we see the holy cross, and when seeing the textures of the cross you feel pain, and when you look at it you end up thinking about life problems you encounter and in this shot we can tell that she grew up looking at this cross, thus representing she has been debating herself since she was a little girl.  However, speaking of this shot I would have to say that in my opinion this could have been shot differently to have to of the same shots but different angles to represent that she has grown up.

 

Throughout this trailer we can tell that the focal point is the lady and her relationship with Jesus and the church, as even in the shots where she is giving us her back she is shot walking to a leading point.  Also, I think the music choice matched the theme perfectly.

 

The thing I found to be the most interesting in this trailer was the way Naomi decided to show the uncanny feature is with – confusion – the confusion in which the woman had whether marrying or dedicating her life to God and I felt as if Naomi did this to make us relate, that everyone will pass from some kind of uncertainty in life – it will be uncanny to them at first but a solution will always come their way, hence, why she didn’t give the ending away as even though something is good for one deosn’t mean it’s good for the other.

 

Task 4: Peer Evaluation Nina Karniej trailer evaluation on: ‘Nostalgia’

Firstly, I have to say that I think this was done beautifully and it wasn’t something I excepted to see, as I thought most trailers would revolve around depression, surreal things and scary items.  However, this was certainly not the case, in this trailer Nina showed the uncanny by telling a part of her story. Nina is an immigrant here in Malta, and the nostalgia is almost like creating a bride with here (Malta) and her homeland (Poland), the past and the future.

 

The trailer starts of with wave shots which are taken in Malta and it shows warm colours of the sunrise which I feel as if it represents that she is happy to be living here, than it moves on to featuring her face in a plane looking out of a window, in which we see shots from the sea in Malta again to a puddle in Poland, which shows that she isn’t a citizen of a certain place but a citizen of the world.  The trailer than takes place in Poland, the colouring of this and textures are quite cold and bland and I do think that this had a reason behind it: to differentiate the two countries, the one she used to call home and the one she is currently calling home.

 

The trailer ends by showing a woman walking towards another woman and when we see them close up they are both Nina – and I think this was done to show that a country doesn’t change someone completely, and that a person can still recall the different experiences and lifestyles she lived/lives in, however, she has to adapt to some new changes and responsibilities she encounters when leaving home and this factor was represented with Nina wearing different clothes while looking at herself, thus showing the same person with only a few changes.

 

A small change I think that would have made this story stronger would have been to show some small snippets of her home town here and there instead of using the sea shot for that long as I believe we could understand her life more, and I would have used more close ups as this is her story and close ups would have made it more personal. Apart from this I thought that even the music choice was good one.

 

I believe the way Nina wanted to portray uncanny in this is by showing that uncanny isn’t really something we’ve never seen or something weird but uncanny is something that we have avoided to acknowledge before, something which has always been in front of our eyes.


 

 

Task 4: Evaluation: Personal evaluation on my trailer: ‘Branded’.

The trailer which I have submitted features a young priest having a tattoo. Why have I chosen to do this is because of a Maltese priest named Fr. Rob who is currently living in Austria who has 2 tattoos, for which I found to be strange but very interesting to me.  Therefore, I decided to base my trailer on the said topic, which one of my main aims was to clearly show it is in Malta, hence why I filmed in Sliema and showed a snippet of Valletta.

 

I chose to have a young actor wearing all black – black is usually the colour which is mostly worn by priests, and another reason for choosing the colour black was to keep it neutral –  even the shots I had where the colours of stone and sea, which are very neutral and this was done on purpose as to link it to everyone having a different opinion and not be biased and I felt as if having neutral colours is like not being biased.

 

The textures featured in this trailer where as I would call them smooth, like the stone of the church or the calm sea, this was portraying the way how this trailer should be approached in a calm manner and when people watch it, they should reason it out calmly.

 

Before I go on to mention what was the reasoning behind naming it branded, I will mention why I chose that specific thin font, I didn’t want the title to be the main focus and in the particular shot I used it in the main focus was the father walking and his hands, therefore, the thin font was done so the viewers aren’t distracted from the main focal point.

 

As I just mentioned the title of this particular trailer is ‘Branded’ – this was done with a reason behind it, and the reason being that each and every single human being out there is branded, and it doesn’t mean that a tattoo is branding you because it’s a permanent thing but the use of branding is because we all have something that makes us, a certain thing that reminds someone of us or of who we are.  In this particular case, I decided to brand this man with being a priest by having him wearing a white collar, and by choosing to give him a tattoo it was showing how he can be anything he wants.  Also, showing Valletta was intentional because apart from having it there because of this view being one of the main attractions in Malta and there is a church a well, Valletta is branded – with this I was trying to portray how Malta is still branding people, and Valletta is a perfect example of this – because apart from it having many different races, religions, faces, bodies, Valletta itself was branded this year, by being called Valletta 18.  Thus, no it wasn’t named branded because a tattoo is permanent but branded because as I said we are all branded.

 

To help shape up these factors the way it was shot and edited did help, firstly I did remove some shots from the original storyboard I had planned out, because when I shot them and re-evaluated I thought that it would have taken some sense out of the trailer and the jump cuts I decided to have wouldn’t have made sense.

 

The shots were mostly taken from an eye-level, this was done for a reason – to show that no one is in power or above any, that we are all equal.  As well as, throughout this trailer I didn’t show the face of the priest until the very end, I decided to show close ups of different features instead, as this is a trailer and it is better to keep the suspense and have everyone interested in what might happen.  I decided to film most of it with the rule of thirds as the shots will look neater.

 

The music was chosen to be a bit dramatic, again to create suspense as I believe that is what a trailer should do: to create curiosity.

 

Strengths I developed and had during this task:  I thought that the story was something different, and not something you’d expect to see when you think of unfamiliar and uncanny.

Another thing was the connections I decided to link with the colours and textures I decided to use in the trailer, and the reasoning behind the name ‘Branded’.

 

Weaknesses I had during this task: I believe the trailer would have been done better, if it was all shot at sunset instead of sunrise.  As well as, the story could have been thought out more wisely to make it seem uncannier: this being that instead of having a priest I could have had a nun and it would have made it a different story and an uncommon situation as I believe we live in a world were man still dominate us, even though we are working for everything to be equal and I think it might have worked in my trailer to have a nun instead of a priest.

Filming Update!

 

Both the actor and the back-up cancelled on Monday 1st January, as they were offered a paying role on the filming day.  Hence I needed to find a new actor as filming was quite close.  Hence I decided to look for a model instead of an actor this time as my trailer didn’t include a speaking part and face emotions!

The next day, Kyle Magri and his agency confirmed he will be able to be a part of my trailer.  However, again I decided to have a back up, which is Idil Demicholi a classmate of mine.

The filming date and location remained the same.

Task 2 – Contextualise – Magazine

Magazine and final reflections:

Created on Canva

 

When I hear street life photography I instantly think of people having a cup of coffee in a cafeteria with a friend or two or old people sitting on benches.  That was how I intended my project to be in the beginning, I also went out to hunt for these kind of sceneries, however it all changed when my classmates and I went to Mdina with our lecturer to take photos.  I came across this little shop in Rabat, where a shoemaker stood inside doing his job and he was very pleased to let us in and take some pictures, as we were about to leave he changes his workstation and I thought of capturing a close-up of his hands on the job.  I fell in love with this photo and I decided that I would re-think my subject and focus on different works, to be precise the people doing the work, to capture the passion in what they do.  One thing I decided from the beginning was that I wasn’t going to hunt for a particular job, I wanted to have workers which I come across constantly such as my nail technician or visiting my dad while baking at work, or to have those lucky shots which I come across by coincidence such as the painter in Mdina.

Some thoughts about my final issue are that, I shouldn’t have taken such a long time to conclude on which subject I should focus on.  Also, I was taught that if I wanted to have more personal photographs, was to get in conversation with the person I was shooting as it would make them more at ease and I really think that this did work as they felt comfortable to do continue on their work and pretend I’m not even there.  My final issue of the magazine was intended to be this way, having the whole person showing in the beginning and in the middle of it getting closer to the hands and focus on working hands, as I had found the perfect quote by Saint Francis.

“He who works with his hands is a labourer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

 

 

Task 1 – Ideate – Define ideas on mood boards

Moodboard.jpeg

Task 1 – Ideate – Explore your surroundings

Photos taken:

I feel like this task was an eye opener, as it made me notice everyday things that I’m usually unaware off.  By having these selected categories I had to go out and really look and think about what I am shooting, and now for future references, I will be more aware.

Lines:  I’d have to say that to take these I found it really helpful that before I was shown and also researched some leading lines/ lines photography as I wasn’t to sure on how to compose a good one. However I still have a lot of improvement to do as I feel that these a pretty basic.

1

‘Tigne Point’ Sliema

2

‘French Affaire’ Sliema

4

Road to/out of Carpark.

5

Leading to the famous beach in Valletta known as ‘Taht is-sur’

3

Stircase to Bugibba Bridge

Texture:  I have to say this category was my favourite, as I love close-ups, even though it was the hardest to shoot as for texture you really need to capture the detail of what you are shooting.

1

Cling Film and Umbrellas

2

Wood

 

3

The crumbs leading to a half eaten cheese-cake

4

Stone wall

5

Rope, paint and wood

Colour:  For this category I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, I usually am one that’s all about the pastels, and when I think of colour I only think about materialistic objects.  However, this time around I challenged myself to open my eyes to new findings and my end results contained, vibrant colours and even though I had neutral and soft colour in the others they were not all materialistic but some were live things.

1

ORANGE, grey and ORANGE

3

While admiring another person’s work of art.

4

Blue Eyes

2

Double Line

5

In the process of changing colours.

Typography:  I found this to be the hardest category out of all, as I didn’t know how I could make a word look interesting and it took me a couple of trials and error to finally take these, as at first I was only looking at the normal printed stationery sign.. but than I tried to think out the box as I wanted to have something different, though I think I still need more practise to have more creative shots of typography.

2

“Nike Air”

3

“Capocr”

1

“Malta”

5

“The Jack of all trades”

4

“Rover”

 

Overall, I’m not disappointed with these photos even though there is work for more improvement.  I have realised that I have to manage time better, as sometimes to try to capture the so-called perfect photo, it took more than just two or three clicks and by the end the light that I thought was capturing it beautifully would have moved.  I have to say I enjoyed this part of the task and I did learn some new skills as well.

Task 1 – Ideate – Explore and Research

Explore and Research –

Street Photographer – Markus Hartel (Graphic Designer)

Began –  Markus Hartel has been passionate ever since he was a kid, when he used to take his family photos with the camera his grandma used to lend him.  He bought his very own one at the age of 10 and continued upgrading to better gear ever since. However, his passion grew bigger from the day he landed in New York City (originally from Germany), he saw life happening all around him and all he wanted to do is capture the moment.

Photographic Style –  Hartel is all about the rawness of a photo, he doesn’t want to sell/capture a pretty photograph, but he wants the reality and the truth – a beautiful picture can still be captured like this.  Unlike most he also takes pictures with film apart from digital.  Hartel finds his subject by keeping his mind free and lets his mind walk 20 feet ahead of him, he says that he captures his subjects by either staying in the place for a while and when the people are too involved in what they are doing he shoots or he is so determined about his subject that he captures instantly being quicker than his aim.

Technique – He doesn’t keep a particular theme in mind because that would block

His artistic views.

Spends hours looking at photography studying what is right and what

isn’t.

Inspiration: Henri Cartier Bresson

Solitude.  When someone has their first glance at this photograph that’s what they can think of, they can see a lonely boy, he looks sad and seems like he is longing for something.

Focal Point: The main focus of this photo is the boy’s face.  His forehead is pressing onto the window of the train and isn’t sitting in line with the other passengers in his row, also they are facing the other way therefore this makes him pop out even more.

The background which is showing the other commuters, doesn’t play a very important role to this photo, however to contrary myself, the fact that we are seeing it full of people shows how being surrounded by people doesn’t mean one can’t be lonely.  Also, the woman in the background sympathizes with the boy as she seems to be tired.

Contrast: This can be seen in the difference between the other people’s jacket in the Background (which all seem to be older than him) and the boy’s jacket – his is a lighter colour compared to everyone else’s which seem to be black.

A graffiti and some scratches are visible on the window of the train indicating a sense of abandons, even though this is a vehicle which is being used everyday and this is a relation to the boy because even though he seems to be taken care of by the look of his clothes doesn’t necessarily mean he is.

 The drops of the word zoom on the train and the scratch line are both leading lines –leading us to the boy’s face.

I’d have to say the rule of thirds was done quite well, as the woman’s face is in line with the upper horizontal line, the boy’s face is in line with the lower horizontal line.  The lady standing next to him is in line with the right vertical line, and in line with the left vertical line is the boy’s hand.  I think this works well as the boy is almost centred but not quite, this avoided having a lot of negative space.

The first thing our eyes are bound to look at, are on the bright orange umbrellas. They stand out in comparison with the greyish tones in the background.  The umbrellas here lead us to the man which are holding it, which I believe, they are positive space, they can be like a secondary subject to the photo.

The photographer here decided to cut out the faces of the man carrying the umbrellas, and he didn’t do this because he is a bad photographer, we see two suited man which we know nothing about however by cutting out their face, we can give an identity to them just by their gestures:

Man 1:

Open Blazer – Representing that he has nothing to hide, he is not afraid to let people in, and let them discover him.

No tie: Free

His umbrella pointing forward (Expressive Lines) – Ambitious, self-confident

Walking in front – A leader

Man 2:

Closed Blazer – The other man is holding the jacket closed, thus showing he is a reserved person.

With tie: Something is suffocating him, holding him tight.

His umbrella pointing backwards (Expressive Lines) – Afraid to take that extra step, hold back.

Walking behind – A follower

Also, the colour of the umbrellas may signify that these men may have a creative side, even though they look like serious business man.

Background: The background of this photo is all negative space – space which doesn’t include any information in the photograph however this works well as it doesn’t distract the viewer from the subject.

Leading Lines:  The vertical lines of the pavement and the coral red line on the street (which this is the only other vibrant colour to the photo). They are directing the way the men are walking towards.

Focus: The focus here was taken on the umbrellas and the men and the background have a fuzzy focus.

Rule of thirds: I think the rule of third was done right as both the right vertical line is on the man standing behind and the left vertical line is on the man in the front, and the horizontal lines meet the vertical lines at the right points: on the umbrella and on the footsteps. Additionally the negative space isn’t an eyesore here.

This is a shot which I don’t believe just anyone could have taken, since he is taking a photo of another picture, however he made it look much more powerful.

First thing is that he didn’t just choose a random newspaper, this was well thought of – the newspaper contains a child with a dark skin colour and even though we are in the 21st Century we cannot hide that most people are still very racist and consider ‘black people’ as the bad people.

People with dark skin colour in Europe and America are still not treated as the citizens or the light coloured people – they have a lot of limitations, hence what the chain is representing, that they are held down and cannot be free.

Some people don’t have the heart to look at this photo since the person behind the chain is a child, we feel sad for her and want to empathize with her.  The photograph makes us think that even though she is young, she is already limited to what she can do. Also, the child in the newspaper didn’t pose for the photo but it’s a close up of her trying to drink.

One can point out on the smile the child has on her face – showing the innocent minds of young children. She is yet to find out what life really offers.

Something I can criticize but he didn’t have much option to do otherwise is the title being very visible and the other typography on the paper as people will want to read what it says.

The chain – The main subject in this photograph is the chain which is very powerful as the photo without it would have been nothing.  The chain is rusty and this is representing that this stereotype has been in minds for ages.

Focus:  This photo has some depth of field as only a part of the chain is focused, and he chose to focus on the part where it is on the child’s face, which guides the viewer to her face.

It is very well composed and the angle he used is a low-angle which might indicate that the photographer wants to give more power to the child.
