POINT OF VIEW (CITY)

VIDEO 1: ENTER THE VOID (BY GASPER NOE)
VIDEO 2: JOURNEY TO THE CITY (BY SHARLEEN D’SOUZA)

The city is a place that is in constant motion and confusion. Everything that goes on in the city is fast and rushed. The best way to capture any city is through the eyes of a person.

My short film was inspired by Gasper Noe’s “enter the void” (video 1). The video revolves around the main character and how he sees things or his “point of view.” His technique revolves around how we see things through our eyes. The eye blinking effect used by Gasper Noe makes it feel like the camera is located in the eye of the main character. Using these techniques i have tried to show the journey of a person(me) through the entire day. I decided to use this style of filming as it gives a better understanding of how people see the city . The film documents my journey to the city from the moment i get up to the time i go back to sleep. It also gives a glimpse of certain areas in and around central.

Although using a POV (point of view) gives only one perspective of the city, it still provides a better experience for the person watching. This is because they would be able to imagine themselves being in that position.
