Separate Domains

Picking my own subject of this film, the decision was made to make it based upon inner monologues of a semi deranged individual. The purpose of a monologue is to show a third person view like experience that even the main character is not completely aware of going on. With that basis, the use of dutch-angle shots and shutters in filming will add to the effect of the deranged thoughts and feelings of the unaware protagonist. This also allows for them to be their own antagonist as what they might think can do harm to others. With that hidden plane of existence that none are aware of the use of rotoscoped shots will be overlaid over the “normal” day to day clips to show the disturbing reality some would think to exist. Eventually these planes clash and coexist when upon examining the protagonist in the mirror, he finally sees the inner self and lets it become the true reality upon which the film then ends.

Limitless – Video Art

 

Life goes beyond the grave/death. Even when people cease to exist on earth they are forever immortalized by the people who knew them well. The theme within both poems, Immortality (1963) by Unknown and Sonnet 23: Methought I saw my late espoused saint by John Milton, and in the movie Inception there are people talking, seeing, and chasing there beloved friends or family. Showing that life doesn’t completely end once you take your last breath, but transfers your existence into remnants of memory of feeling, hearing, and even seeing. What would tie these all together would be to have reality washed out with faded color and have the scenes of the dead “walking” amongst the living have vivid warm colors, to show that sometimes the only way people are happier is when they are still with the ones who are gone. And after we have accepted the reality of their death of flesh we can deal with the weight of breathing.
