Exploration of Movement to create action and suspense
Action and suspense in films are created by both fast movement and quick cutting juxtaposed with slow motion and static shots. The goal of this project is to use all of these styles of cinematography to explore the creation visual suspense. This will be done by staging and filming a sword fight between two medieval warriors. The final video will be 2-3 minutes in length. The glidecam is needed for this project since it is the one piece of equipment that allows for forms of movement that are nearly impossible to accomplish simply by hand.
