2014 Video Sketch 2-4

Shot with: Vine

The 3 crafts in the video are, in order, a kid is lying prone on the back of elephant, 4 people hugging in a circle, an aboriginal family of three.

These shots could be the cutaways/B-roll materials, which are commonly used to hide zooms in documentary.

 Similarly, a contextually irrelevant part of a sentence or anecdote can be removed to construct a more effective, succinct delivery. This can also be used to change the meaning of the speaker to fit the view of the producer. In fiction film, the technique can be used to indicate simultaneous action or flashbacks, usually increasing tension or revealing information.

As the contents of these cutaways still stick to the topic ‘intimacy’, they may create a better mood for the audience in a way.

Lastly, the constraints were less cared in mobile video making, in this case, the reflection of myself holding the camera on the showcase window was captured in the video. This is familiar to every one of us as we see our reflections all the time. Thus, the audience would get realness from watching the video that full of  real experiences of life.
