Transcript of Dystopia

Dystopia dys·to·pi·a [dis-toh-pee-uh] noun 1. a society characterized by human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease, and overcrowding. 2. an imaginary place where everything is as bad as it can be Science Fiction & The Future Early science fiction - prosperous, clean, positive. The Realists - George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Philip K. Dick, etc. Authors that saw the potential for human errors and the darker possibilities of where mankind could eventually end up. Decline Macro Social Decay & Moral Physical - both natural and man-made objects alike. Fear Environmental Degradation Financial Collapse Terrorism Political Instability Apocolyptic Proclamations We live in a time of global unrest. The Eye The eye represents a multitude of things - Realization
Enlightenment
Understanding
Knowledge
In relevance to dystopia, the eye represents a wake up call. A stark realization of where we are and where we could end up as a society and as a race. I intend to make a 2 minute, conceptual short video based around dystopian themes and using macro videography. The idea to use macro was inspired by Peter Waiting whilst he gave me a tutorial on how to develop my ideas. The macro footage is a symbol of how these little details that we don't usually notice, often lead to big realizations. Dystopian Themes - Decay
Dissolving
Crumbling
Oppression
Time
The Eye
The video will represent the potential for society, as we know it, to fall into a very real dystopian environment and how the human race, generally, seems to turn a blind eye. Modern Science Fiction Recent science fiction films have tended to focus more on the degradation of the physical world we live in. They depict a post-apocalyptic world where humanitys ignorace has become its downfall. Lighting In regards to lighting the objects I will shoot - Blade Runners neon cityscape.
Florescent lighting
Purple, green, yellow, blue and red
Each colour emphasizes certain moods and characteristics of the object being lit. Test Shots End of Year Show For the end of year show -

Ideally individual screen
Back lit by florescent lights used during shooting
Objects from the shoot next to screen with magnifying glasses. Realistically, if individual screens can not be attained, a large projector for all video work. Thank you for listening!
