Sam Taylor Wood - Still Life!!
I thought this image was a bit weird at first as it was a bowl of fruit. Then you saw the fruit decaying so turning into a grey misty colour. But soon after it decayed al ot more by turning it in a dusty /mould in a rotten way. This didn’t look eatable at all at this stage. The fruit did change colour to brown where it seemed like it was going off. I thought that nothing else was going to happen, but after that it then turned yellow which was a bit weird, not eatable after that either . It was good video; the way he did it decaying showing that food can go off; maybe that's what his message was trying to say I think. I thought he could have made it where the fruit changed colour or even moved around on the screen or something, but it was good video his idea is very interesting.
Sam Taylor Wood – A little Death!!
In this image you saw a dead rabbit positioned in an awkward place with his feet up on the wall that was weird I thought. Then you start seeing his skin moving like something was going to come out of it but it didn’t. The rabbit’s skin was falling apart; it looked like seeds I thought that you could see in his body. The seed was moving around inside it. Then as you saw this you saw like the brown colour was moving and spreading its way onto the wall (spreading away further up). I thought this was cruel, not very nice to see really. Then at the end you get the rabbit’s body in this dark long thing a bit strange to be honest.
In this video you could see a women laughing her head off at one stage; the next you saw her like she was upset crying over something. You get the use of her hands touching her forehead,you can see the emotion that it gives off to the audience. I think this person’s message is that in our daily lives we all go through experiences that we may find upsetting or funny. We have a change of emotions throughout the day; we can instantly change our emotions depending on the situation that made us feel like that. I think it showed a good way of changing people’s emotions with the use of one person because we all go through different emotions.
David Lynch – Alphabet!!
You get this image (location), not really sure what it is.You get this voice in the background of a man singing opera. I thought he was drawing the image; I thought he was telling the story of the location with the use of opera in his voice, it sounded tense. I’m not sure it’s just what I thought. Then you get the use of this big mouth without a face a bit weird I thought with the annoying sound as well.
I liked how the ball was moving up along the two blocks. The sounds you get when watching this was really squeaky noises that are so annoying, you could easily straggle whose doing this noise; but it may be a sound effect used not sure. Then you get the changes of the pictures which I thought was weird. The images changed from organs from the body then turning it into some sort of body of a woman; with the whooshing and the stupid squeaking sound which is annoying. Then you get the use of floating letters which I thought worked well coming from the plant. Then you get the spooky girl, she reminds me a bit of that girl from the grudge with the dark black hair she does look scary. Then the use of the body again of the women spurts out blood from the eyes. The close up of a deformed face in a way which looks scary.
You got the grudge girl again lying there, dots of blood splatters everywhere on the cover. Then you get her moving around on screen a bit creepy of her saying the alphabet with the hand movement. I think this message was trying to scare the audience at this point. You get the girl again but where you actually see the red blood splattering from her mouth, you get the sound of a TV fussing in a way .
Simon Ellis – Telling lies!!
With this you get the use of the red words coming onto the screen very quickly which is linking into the voice at the start of them telling the story. You get the use of the numbers on screen like there actually dialling the numbers and you can hear that he is dialling the phone. I thought that worked really well with actually seeing the visual aspect of this with the letters appearing on screen; the uses of the numbers as they are quickly showed like he’s dialling them very quick. It's telling a story about lies about a girl, she said that she did it with a guy called Darren making the other guy jealous; the guy phones Darren he says that he didn't go back to hers when the guy asked; it's hard to believe who’s telling the truth of what really happened. At the end of this conversation you can hear Darren sounding like he's got a bad signal of the cutting of the sound where the guy asked him that he wouldn't do that to him. It makes you wonder is he lying. It shows that people can lie about stuff depending what it is and maybe it's trying to get out a message by saying it's not good to lie when it's in situation involving your mates or something. I still think this works even without images as long as you got the voices speaking so telling the story works well, like I said the numbers and the words coming on the screen.
You get the inter title coming up, you get the use of a panning shot slowly moving towards this sheet weird . The Creepy whisper voice is very hard to understand but it sounds like a dream of the voices in this persons head. You get the quick shots of the covers moving a bit weird; I think it could show this person is having a bad dream of some kind; she has these voices in her head which she is trying to get rid of may be . You get the outer shadow of the covers in the background as well. Then you get the sound and the use of inter tiles on screen appearing. The sound is a lot quieter as you see the women, and then the other legs join together forming one piece which was pretty good.
You get the use of the person again under the sheets, so it’s creating an enigma in a ghostly way of the movement. The outer shadow is being built outside from this. Then you get the use of the sheets in the background as well of the two people. The sheets they fade in over the top of them and then fade away leaving the two people to turn to white to a long necklace, I think not sure. Then another inter title comes up on the screen; you get the quick movement from this cover, then the pace gets faster like it’s transforming, you see her face appearing she looks scary. The image did transform into a women arrgh scary. You get a blackout; you just get the use of her face scary stuff. Then you get the annoying noise it sounds like a hoover arrgh it hurts your ears. At the end you get the whispers but you can't hear what they’re actually saying. It was good but very different and unusual I would say; but not my cup of tea.
I really liked this one =).It shows at first the use of the bright and different tones of blues in the bars. You get the shadow of this like it's a mirror reflection. It changes the colours by fading in the blue tones then bringing out more vibrant bright colours which I think worked well. It changes to dots in a small bar then before; it uses the dots to change into this bright sparkling effect .I thought it gives of a concert is being taken place just before the singer goes onto the stage; they always do an opening sequence . The sparkles they remind me a bit of party poppers exploding with the excitement, like something’s happening. I really like this bit a lot .Then it changes colour to like a shadow kind of look, a bit like fibre optics with the colours moving around and the change of green tones to orange tones; then reaching out to all different tones moving up and down looks good. Then it looks like the colour changes giving it lines so adding texture to it. Then the colour flashes to dark tones of blue and then to a lighter tone of blue; it looks like a building at first then changes quickly to a dark shade of blue of scattered lines.
I really liked that how it changes so quick into a different colours and the visual look is good. I really like this due to the vibrant colours changing then moving .Then it changes to the sparkling effect like a concert is being taking place, I like that bit .It reminds me of the base of the music is moving up and down with the use of the line bars of where the colour is changing and moving quickly; it’s like the tempo of the music I thought. It's really good how she filmed this and this is an interesting video. I like the idea of it with the colours of the dots changing, it changes to the sparkles of quick flashes, it’s really good piece of work.
You get the use of the jug appearing onto the table then it smashes up into loads of pieces across the table. I liked the way this was done very good .Then you get the use of the candle nice colour, then as something passes through it just then starts to shake like a hula hoop. You got the use of the paper being burnt from a bullet; it was so quick it looked like a bullet. Then the paper just moved floating the ash away, it started crumbling down at the bottom of the paper. I liked the orange one where it got the hammer it just smashed it, all the water splattered out from it I liked. You got the egg where it uses the mouse trap to splat open the egg with the egg juice splattering everywhere. I like the crayon one where there standing upright then something pushes through it; it makes the crayon fall apart with the use of the crayon bit flying out of the crayon. The crayon itself is floating the other way it looks good.
The use of someone whacking the TV screen with a hammer and the glass shows through instantly. How weird I thought. The glasses moved on a side then all of them started moving which I thought was good. You get the use of the red wine I’m going to say, in the next image it splattered creating those circles ripples which was good how it transformed into another image was good .You see this karate guy smashing these bricks in one which is amazing as it is so quick the action; you see like the dust coming of the bricks as he smashes it. The use of these different light bulbs splattering on the floor everywhere I like it, it reminds you of when you was young having fun with paint splattering around everywhere creating a mess. You get the use of this card that has been ripped then it falls; it picks itself back up again that was good but not that wow factor.
You got this person standing there , he gets chucked this paint at him it moves down to his body; his body starts to move of the paint like it's bouncing of him . I thought that was weird but in a good way, just how the paint bounces of him it was weird but good. Then you got the flower wind mills just moving round with the dust in the air pretty boring it's just simple idea. It looks a bit like cake, someone just pushed there fist through it a bit plain I thought. The skater dude just jumping again just simple stuff what any skater can do. The use of a bottle spraying out white paint was really quick, then it slowed down; I thought that was good as it is different you wouldn't see that happen at all . The use of lighter is good with the flame coming out expanding a bit, then it jumps into the other image where it looks like it has landed on the moon; then the moon has splattered due to heat from the flame, I thought that was good and interesting you wouldn't see that all .
You have the use of the man standing there as he is being sprayed at by the paint, a bit boring to be honest anyone could film and do that but good though. You got the use of the three colours which evaporates into this dark hole that splatters, then it forms into a bouncy castle with the form of the water bouncing of it; it was a different idea with the use of water and colours but a good idea. You have the use of the three balloons as something sharp went through it, the balloon burst into paint splattering out. I like this because with a balloon it would burst but not like this it adds an effect with it; the paint it interesting to watch because it works really well. You have the use of the light bulb where it breaks of into little sparks then breaks completely; it’s interesting of a different outcome to normal, but I like the idea with the use of red sparks added to it. The use of the green circle then changes to blue, it splatters all over the guy with leaving him drenched. You see the blue stains it left on him, I thought that worked well as someone chucks him a green thing, it changes colour and then splats on him that's good.
The use of squashing the boy’s face with the eggs, I think it was a bit weird not so keen on this. The use of the mouse traps on the glass bottle was good as then the mouse trap lifts the silver bit up it smashes it one by one then breaks; that was interesting as that would never happen. The use of lighters in the mixer jug changes colour a bit; like mist then sprays out the lighters, it’s interesting to see this different effect created. The use of the strawberry on the spoon splatters in the spoon; it was okeay but not interesting to watch. You got someone holding a bottle which the cork screw comes flying out; it explodes with the excess of the wine which is good, you see it flying into the other image of the glasses of the different colours of wine. The wine then breaks the glass of two of them, you see the liquid dripping downwards .I liked this it is very creative here and a good idea. You have the two guys at the end getting splattered by the paint, creating that fun factor.
