C H A P T E R 3
In this short film I wanted to focus on the atmospherics of the dark spacial memory. I came up with the idea of having a single bed and a TV being the only thing in shot, I really wanted those two objects being the centre of attention as they are within my memory of the space. Due to my memory being of the loss of my mum, I wanted to give the impression that this was an abandoned space, that someone was there, but now has left. I created this by making the bed sheets scrambled like someone had been sleeping in them and I put the TV on. I purposely had the TV on the fuzzy screen to give the feeling of absence. There is an element of familiarly that hope the viewer would respond to with the two objects being a bed with a tv but I also wanted them to feel uncomfortable viewing it. The uncomfortable feeling has the greater meaning of what I feel personally within the real space of my mums bedroom.
