We had a collaboration with 16mm film last week. We use footage of animals in Australia and tried to change the meaning of the original film. This is a very interesting experience for 16mm film.
First day, we use chemical material to change color with 16mm film. We tried to do some experiments with 5 minutes ,10 minutes, 20 minutes separately. Finally , we got a perfect color with 20 minutes.
We want to change the meaning of the original film, which makes it more interesting. We decided to scratched into the background behind the animal. Highlight the part of animal, the film drastically emphasizes that animal’s environment is dangerous. In some sense, we make a different sense for the pre-existing footage of animals. After that, we want to write some messages in the film ,like a slogan for protecting animal. At last, we use easier information instead of message, which is SOS Morse Code.
Lastly, we chose to use editing viewer to present these16mm film.
