STILL IN MOTION

'Still in Motion' consisted of the development and production of three 'video essays' as a component of the Bachelor of Communications (Media) Honours program at RMIT University, 2011.

Abstract:

Through a program of practice-based research, I investigate how the documentary photo-essay can be translated into a video form. Undertaking such a project enables me to both combine the approaches of a still and moving-image practice, and to explore the integration of interaction and the spatial arrangement of video. Three interactive non-fiction video works have been designed and produced, each directly informed by the aesthetic and narrative affordances of the photo-essay. The making of these prototype ‘video-essays’ has been used to develop a model for further engagement with non-fiction video within my own practice. In a broader context, this research provides alternative approaches towards digital video production and publication.

Please note: the above works require Quicktime and a fast internet connection. For best playback results, it is recommended that they are downloaded directly and viewed offline. The works are available to download at:

WORK 1: TRANSIT
WORK 2: OMA
WORK 3: SHOOT

Linear iterations of both 'Oma and 'Shoot' can be viewed under 'MOVING IMAGE'.
