i have been working on 3 project at the mo..

still working on the curry mile film and trying to think of some new idea to put in the film.

as the first edit didn't really work as well as i had hoped i am going to go back to the drawing board and rethink some of the idea. in the first year i became to love the effect of stop motion animation and i have thought about putting this in to my own curry mile film.. i have already done this with colouring in the curry mile. where i got old photos of the wilmslow road and in stop motion coloured them in highlighters and slowly brightened you and neonfied the black and white photos.
i have started to produce some more stop motion taking photos of the curry mile and then animating then cutting then up and then the slice of photo turn in to ingredients for curry such as carrots.

along with the live action of the curry mile i think i might rething this and i have been walking down and up the mile thinking about the film and how i will film it. when i am able to get a camera i am going to walk down and up curry mile at day and at night taking photos as a walk so that it capture what i view and how i see the road when i walk down it. so I'm going to try this idea and see where it gets me and hopefully in inspires me to other idea for the film..

i have been working on another project as well based on identity and surveillance. the idea that we are always being watvched with what every we do and how we live our lives. from little things like receipts to larger things like cameras,ID cards and fingerprints. when i think about the ID card shceme that could be coming in sooner than we thing i see it as a little bit of me that the government will be taking away and holding personal information that is mine and storing it in a data system will millions of other people taken a personal thing from me and just through along with billions of ether people that i don't know and how this data could be played with by the wrong people.
with this project i have been collecting my receipts,including bus tickets etc. i have made some masks out of mod rock as a way of handing your identity from the people and how the government See us now as just numbers in society and not as individual people.i have also been thinking about making a instalation of a crime lab scene and collect poeple details like finger prints,reicieps and other information and making it like we are always under inverstigation and under the eye.

a taking tin.. i have been thinging about making a talking tin such as the tin taks about it's life of being a lable and compares it self to humans and how they are turning in to lable in the world. just a rambling tin can and a little bit of fun.

i have been thinking about the blue-tack compertition and have a view ideas to try ot of how to make a film..

i have though of one idea where i film my self putting up photos of my family and friends and the as the photos are put up the come to live replacing the photos with videos of my family/friends/pets as a way of showing that blu-tacking your photos up brings them to life and makes you enjoy the memories.sounds better n my head i thnk.

also thinking about making a stop motion animation with the blu-tack but will have think more about that and a story line i would make with the blue-tack ..

i am thinkin of making a mind map to expained my ideas and make me think more deeply in to the project as the closing day is quite far away i should have time to try and make sme thing of a high quality

over christams and new year i have not really wrote in this so i think it's time for a catch up ...
before christmas we had our half year presentations that seem to go out. i finished my cirry mile film to a first draft and plan to work on it more this term. i have throught about tha film more and have been researching and watching documenty style films to give me some ideas of how a film like this could be structured and how other people have tactled their own films.

talking about myt film over with my tutur has also helped.
i have the basic footage and i need to go back down curry mile and see it for what it is and get more footage /research of the mile and also i want to get some interviews from people and what they think of the curry mile and what it brings to manchester
