LOCKDOWN SPECIAL – Challenges for May
My challenge is for OVFM to make a club film ‘together’ during ‘lockdown’
To start things off, I thought we could take the principle of this film on Vimeo and each try to film an element of it a home, in our own style. It might just be cutting out a paper person, drawing a face, taking a photo of the dining room table or a TV, copying some clip art of musical notes, making a backdrop (we have some artists among our membership) etc. If the music is a distraction turn it off, as the ‘editors’ can choose music that will go with the footage they receive. It doesn’t have to be a film about love, the choice is yours.
It would be good if individuals would commit to one or more of the elements. It doesn’t matter if many chose the same element. We will need members who specialise in animation and others in edit. With footage shared, this could then be made into a number of films and we could vote on our favourite version I’m sure there will be some comic ones in amongst them. Someone might even want to write a script for us to follow.
To start the ball rolling I will commit to trying to make some matchstick men and faces showing different expressions.
Over to you!
