Film Poster

Now that we have entered the final half of third year at university (how terrifying), thoughts have turned to our final independent projects.  This module provides the students with complete creative control, producing anything that falls under ‘Media Art’ and be displayed in our graduate exhibition.

To begin this lengthly process, we were recently tasked with creating an A1 research poster, documenting our initial proposals.  These posters were then displayed throughout the course building, where our peers and the public were able to view them.  I have chosen to combine my two favourite art forms, film and poetry, to create a short contemporary film (more details can be found below).  I’m excited to see how this concept will evolve throughout the process!

Pentax K1000

For the duration of my course at university, I have experimented with a number of their analogue cameras. You may have seen in a previous post that this inspired me to search for my own Super 8 camera, a search which is sadly on going. However towards the end of last year I finally managed to commit and purchase my own Pentax K1000.

Whilst I know it is not the most sophisticated or professional of models, I stumbled across it in a hidden away antique shop and couldn’t resist its charm (or price tag at only £25)! Since then I have gone through several roles of black and white film, snapping to capture memories rather than for my portfolio. Here are a few from a few months ago, taken at occasions such as my visit to the Eden Project and a trip to the seaside.

More of this series will follow!
