Fixed camera postion in a manner similar to that of the Lumiere Brothers. The film depicts on a city junction within the precinct of Salamanca in Hobart during the post work rush. I hoped to create a dynamic sense of movement and interest, influenced primarily by the Lumiere footage of traffic in Lyon.
The work was completed as the first project within my enrolled course 'The Moving Image' as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree. I didn't find much difficulty in the project, I did however have to consider what were my best video captures out of a sample of 13 locations or angles. Furthermore, I also had to take into account alteration of the original colour footage into grayscale and hence the adequate exposure levels considering the overcast sky. This was potentially my greatest concern as higher levels of exposure caused very stark contrast between the over exposured sky and the adjacent buildings. In conclusion I feel I have some degree captured an interesting moving composition, featuring subjects as the differing levels of traffic, the busy Customs House outdoor area and the foot traffic.
