FILM SEQUENCE 1B — Vertov, Dziga (DAHO001)
A series of fragment that built up a whole study is the technique that I chose to represent my work. Vertov, Dziga “The man with the movie camera(1929) shares his perception of the event and vision that he encounter during his film making process. He tries to capture the movement of the people within a rhythm in the city. the people make up the city without the people the city would just be tall building and sculpters . In his film he talks about how the city and its inhabitant interact with each other in the daily routine of work or leisure. The film is the representation of real events and movements, it is not a fiction are a recreation of any events.
I have used the same technique as he has to represent the city and its people through my perception.I filmed my work from the central station till my hometown in serval fragments. Through my film I tried to portrait how people are performing their day routine. Some people are in a rush to get somewhere, while are enjoying the view outside.The wind is blowing and its getting chilly.While I was filming a mother and her child were running and having a good time so I wanted to capture that happy moment. Through my point its how I see the city, people are rushing to get around, they are working for the livelihood, they are busy in their own world they created.I filmed it in black and white to make it similar to the original one. I use my smartphone to film it.
