I spent today creating another short film in order to practice bringing an idea to life from my storyboard, as well as to enhance my filming and editing skills. I wanted to convey the inner turmoil of someone suffering from mental illness in this story. I believe I achieved this very effectively with the imagery I used combined with the fast pace and the constant jumping and repeating of clips. I found the absence of dialogue created tension on top of the haunting music. I found my use of angles and shots to be much more complex this time round as I was more ambitious with my overall creation. However I think my editing skills could improve further and I am therefore planning to invest in a more complex film editing software.
