My Baba Yaga video is nominated for Royal Television Society Award. Royal Television Society is a British-based educational charity for the discussion, and analysis of television in all its forms, past, present and future. It is the oldest television society in the world. It is such a huge honour to be nominated. Fingers crossed and I win next year!
We decided to go with neutral colours of white, blue, brown and beige. That way the flat would not only look more spacious and modern but also would not take away attention from photos and videos that would be broadcasted on the frames etc.
My idea for the FMP is a mix of biographical portraiture and moving image. By mixing photos, videos and biographical insight I want to build a narrative around protagonist. It all will be done on a stylised canvas.
The inspiration for this project comes widely from the very first project we had in the first year of university which was a selfless portrait. I wanted to create something similar as I like the idea of giving a deeper meaning for photos. Upon my research I came across a photographic style called Biographical Portraiture. I liked work of Louise Read and her approach for this style.
The project aims at a target audience of 20+ as they’re very likely to be interested in adding extra meaning to their photos. This unique technique of mixing photos and videos on a canvas produces a versatile format that can then be shared over social networks or can be used as a live wallpaper on the phones or can be put on digital frames. As well as it can be projected in the gallery as it is a very artistic approach for portraiture.
