William Kitchings, Comp. Lit.: Cinema Studies
This is a short (est. 10-12min) film project that explores the blurred line of mainstream and counter culture represented in Cal Anderson Park in the center of Seattles Capitol Hill neighborhood. It will capture a moment of transition- physically, as the numerous surrounding construction sites illustrate; and socially, as we witness a wide variety of people in the park. The title, Capital Hill, suggests a national identity and in this way I hope to extend the relevance of the images to engage the national social imagination and the idea that we are in a new age of change and promise (and many ideas/problems therein). Within this setting, the film will follow a couple wherein the girl feels that there is a lack of passion and that, perhaps, they should end their relationship. The film will be shot entirely in the park and will feature as many willing residents as I and my assistants can gather. No collaborators have yet been confirmed as equipment availability will allow me to tell people the exact days that I will need them.
