Film Review- Rossbeighed Reeks
I restrained myself from rushing into print by way of comment on "POV Climbing on Eastern MacGillicuddy's Reeks" by rossbeighed. I was worried that I might be having a fuddy duddy reaction to an experimental piece. I'm sure we've all seen the type of documentary where the camera is hand held and there is an amount of swiveling and rapid movement. It makes for drama in the right circumstances. This kind of hosepipe effect is quite common. too, in pop videos...I think that young brains can handle rapid movement but, to be completely honest, its very difficult for the likes of me to cope with it. I can feel my brain being scrambled. But this director/cameraman most definitely has potential. For a start he and his pals gambol about effortlessly and fearlessly. I think that the GoPro type shots need to be limited to small sections of the movie. And I would urge that serious consideration be given to playing such shots in slow motion. This will enable the mentally challenged such as myself to take in the drama without suffering ataxia. It's the screen contents rather than the camera that should be lively. Panning and slow zooming is fine, in small doses. More good things about this movie. There's the inclusion of graphics designed to show the viewer where the action is taking place. The interposing of such data needs to be crisp so that it does not totally interrupt the action. You know there's an awful lot of work involved in these videos...setting up shots...maybe repeating the action to get it right. Close ups. And editing. And unifying the action by dumping most of the contemporaneous sound and replacing it with music. I felt that something really pacy was needed so I switched off the sound and replaced it with YouTube Hard-Fi - Living For The Weekend (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGardUiWjR4). That gave me a flavour of how the rapid action could be stitched up with sound. ( I also enjoyed superimposing the sound of The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1c2OfAzDTI )
So here's my message. Keep on at it...The idea is not to replicate what our leading folks are doing, but to go beyond what they are doing. You can bust up those formulae but you cannot re write the underlying rules of motion pictures...Ban the hosepipe. Edit the sound. Edit the action. Sharpen the focus.
