BCM115 WHERE I AM FROM

BCM115 WHERE I AM FROM

For my final project in BCM115, I wanted to immerse in the key elements of my proposed poem and choice of words. The keywords of “Warm, welcoming and safe” enticed the entirety of the video and its concepts. Beginning the video with my favourite childhood book “Matilda” gives the audience a gage on the general ambience of my final project, along with the calming song of “Morning” by Francis & The Lights which is conveniently my favourite time of day. Using in majority still shots with a central focal points and close ups further gave the video a calming yet drawing effect. The atmosphere of the video is also centred around the sound effects included, from the birds chirping in the second frame to my Mum watching television in the background of the seventh frame. The sound effects and videos all reminded me of home which is overall the focus of the project.

BCM115 Assignment 1 – video poem

For my first assignment, I decided to take a ‘warm’ approach to the “where I’m from” topic. I described through video, the warmth of my home on a rainy day. The rain dripping down the window symbolises the safety of home. I hoped to create a sense of security, much like how I personally feel being a home with a cup of tea on rainy day with my dogs. Home is where my heart is, much of why I added a video of an old photo album, in capturing my real home, which is wherever my family is.

My draft poem:

I am from a photo album

from weathered photgraphs and home cooked meals

I am from the overcrowded yet comforting sanctuary 

warm, welcoming and safe
