Self-Initiated Project Launch

  • Create meaningful/ inspiring AREA OF INQUIRY
    • use template, design brief to your own personal idea
      • SMART
  • No limitations on media or techniques

RESEARCH
– PRIMARY – 1st hand research – museums, archives, fieldwork, testing/experiments etc.
– experience only YOU can gather.

SECONDARY – materials published by others – reviews + articles, text books, commentaries, reference books

  • build on initial primary research – inception through to conclusion 
    • use creative process as a guide
EVERYTHING  IS A REMIX
  • most ideas are not original, it is the way you execute them that is original
    • filmmakers can be inspired by painters 
    • painters can be inspired by writers 
  • FOR EXAMPLE – William Hogarth; The Rake’s Progress has inspired many art forms, now culminating in an opera with David Hockney involved as a set designer.
“It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to” – Jean Luc-Godard
  • Find and establish your “voice” – will people recognise it’s by you? what makes your work and you different? what is your voice, your message? 
  • Filmmakers, photographers, artists will often have certain STYLISTIC ATTRIBUTES or RECURRING THEMES – trademark
    • Tarantino – ‘feet’
    • Wes Anderson – composition, colour palettes, uncomplicated plot
  • In terms of having a “voice” I am most drawn to the visuals within the Powerpoint that focused on photographers and self-expression – a story or experience that needs to be told.
  • Summer moodboard
  • you need to decide on the THEMES, the FORMAT and CONTEXT, using  the project brief template to deconstruct and break down your idea aswell as present it in a cohesive way.
  • 4 assessment grids need to be met -= RESEARCH, IDEAS DEVELOPMENT MATERIALS AND METHODS USED, REFLECTIONS AND EVALUATIONS
