In order to develop a clearer understanding of experimental film I decided to watch other experimental films on YouTube.
Watching these films built my knowledge base in regards to the conventions of experimental film. This gave me ideas about how I would construct my media piece. A key feature I noticed within this genre was the focus on a particular individual, experimental films are created with the individual in mind building a story for that person and allowing the audience relate. The editing techniques used reflect different messages; the characters are often placed in a variety of settings and shown in multiple angles. The usage of superimposition is common within this genre as the fade from one image to another creates a link and confusion in the imagery presented.
