POV stands for Point of View. The word is used in describing a method of shooting a scene or film that expresses the attitude of the director or writer toward the material or of a character in a scene as was stated from the dictionary.
The origin of this video is a 7 minute video of a POV starting from UTS Engineering Building to a park behind the campus area, which is located approximately across the other engineering building, but it has reduced to a 1 minute video to focus on 1 main point. The chosen technique, which is POV, has been chosen to frame the city as it gives the eye level view of what the people that often uses this path see the structures that are around them. Simple examples of the views that can be seen in this video are walking to the other side of the road and walking through a shortcut that is created to cross the park. The tool that I have chosen is digital camera. The sequence of the video is as such because it is to show different pathways of shortcuts.
The filmmaker that is chosen for this project is none other than Gaspar Noe, which has created Enter the Void in 2010. His work is more focused on how a human sees his surroundings, while this video is more concerned on what a human sees in the surrounding area. In one of the movie critics it was stated that what we see is purely the point of view of its leading figure; we watch everything through his eyes as stated by Peter Bradshaw.
