"Dream Big" - Final Year Project Film
BSc Film Production Technology with Management
A Technical Investigation into Time Manipulation in Film" with a focus on time-lapse and slow motion.
Inspired by reading about philosophers, scientists and religious figures, I created an original speech and produced a short film to complement it.
After reading a study done by Stanford University: "Awe Expands People's Perception of Time, Alters Decision Making and Enhances Well-Being," I have aimed my film to invoke a feeling of wonder and awe.
I want the essence of the film to say "You are on a small ball of rock, live life and try hard to get whatever you want achieve".
