Film Club 2015 – L’Intervalle

Welcome to the Film Club for 2015.

This year the overriding theme is “L’Intervalle”, or the spaces between in filmmaking. We’ll be exploring this idea and how it appears and can be constructed in film. Tonight’s initial exercise involved us first having a look at the film “Two Cars, One Night”, embedded below, and then performing a simple still photography exercise – also embedded and described below.

We considered the types of ‘space’ we might be able to consider in film:

  • Intimate
  • Personal
  • Social
  • Public

Then we explored the manipulation of the focal length in our camera in order to represent the physical space between two characters differently. The following images were taken at close proximity, medium zoom and then full zoom on the camera’s lense. The two boys stayed completely still throughout the session.
