Since I haven’t accomplished much so far other than a bit of research and my proposal, I’m not able to answer any of the questions given to us. Here is a short update!
I have just begun to dive into my research, and so far I have found that the most valuable sources to look at are actual short films rather than websites. Although websites contain important information as well, in my opinion the best way to learn about something is to have exposure to it.
As I mentioned in my proposal, I am going to be focusing on a specific genre of film: experimental. Based on the research I have done these past few days, experimental films can basically be anything you want them to be, they don’t have to follow specific guidelines or expectations. They are a way for you to express your feelings, ideas, wants, and fears. For my short film I want to showcase my experiences as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, both the good and the bad. I have already asked Char to be the main character in my film, and I’m still in the process of creating the other character(s) I want to include (and the people who are going to play them).
That’s it for now!
