After much deliberation we finally came to the conclusion that we wanted our perspective video to be from: Some one who was just stumbled upon the cottage and entered the garden to explore. We felt the beautiful garden was such an oasis in the middle of the city and we wanted to show just how stunning and out of place it is amongst the high-rise building and constructions sites.
To capture this perspective we plan on taping a phone to one of our group member’s head they will then walk around the garden and ‘explore’. This should give the impression that the audience is looking through the ‘explorers’ eyes. The camera will also pick up on all the subtle head movements and things such as hair blowing across your face etc.
To really emphasise this point of view we will be using the prop of sunglasses to put over the camera to really communicate that it’s a ‘mechanical eye’.
