Project Film – Subjective and Objective

Subjective and Objective

For this project I have made a short silent-film using the subjective and objective POV for presenting my narrative.

The story is simple Joe returning home receives a text from his girlfriend arranging to meet him after work.  He quickly has a cup of tea and shower and having dressed to go out discovers his keys are missing.  Having been security conscious and locking himself in he now has no way to leave his home without his keys.  He tries the window in the kitchen and failing he sits down to think what to do, only to discover he is sitting on them.  He quickly leaves only to get a text from his girlfriend advising that she is stuck in traffic and is going to be late.

I used only prime-lenses and used a separate light-meter to control exposure to maintain ISO-125 for image quality.
