A smartphone film.
Hayden, Natalie and Kaitlyn (otherwise known as BigBoy), are dealing with a plethora of emotions, yet as an audience how can we actually know how they are feeling without being them? We must view them through our own truths and our own frame of mind. This film will study the projection of emotions that inform how we view others. The two are espoused, so the film aims to create a dichotomy between the camera and subject, or audience and subject. Dealing with distortion, confusion, joy and melancholia, we often view others as a reflection of ourselves, so to a degree our lens of view is distorted and manipulated. The film, whilst a documentary, will strive to extract the most poignant truth even if it is hyperbolic in fashion. Each subject will convey their emotions through a colour of choice from a selection of 8 to wrap around the camera lens. Thus, reflecting their emotions and attachment to this colour in that specific moment. As the hidden person in the room, the audience can then see the moment through the (coloured) lens of the subject to get a better understanding of the ‘truth’ of said moment; like multifaceted rose-coloured glasses.
