Michel Gondry

After researching Michel Gondry and the techniques of repetition to create pattern in his music videos, such as The Chemical Brothers ‘let forever be’ and ‘star guitar’, Kylie Minogue’s ‘Come into my world’ and The White Stripes ‘The Hardest Button to Button’ and his modern surrealist films such as ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind’ I gained a few more ideas and direction for my project. I thought that  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind captured the idea of exploring the subconscious mind through memories in an interesting and successful way  and the techniques Gondry uses create the feeling of disorientation and unfamiliarity.

I have been studying the techniques, and will be trying them out this week in filming and post production.  A lot of the shots I have already filmed are moving shots in different locations such as on a train, in my garden, on the beach and in the junkyard shop, and I think if I get the speed right in the movement and editing I can cut them to look like it is all one long sequence of changing locations without obvious cuts between them.
