An uncomfortable array of intense busy city streets, some clips overlapping and leaking into its predecessor, all tinted with contrasting colours.

Preproduction Synopsis: My smartphone film won’t have a story of any kind, instead showcasing a collection of videos and clips taken around Melbourne and other towns or cities. I want every shot to have a dominant colour. Whether I do this by meddling with the colour grading or applying a filter over the clip, the shot will have an obvious and prominent colour. Almost every shot will be busy with action of some kind; people walking, objects moving, a band playing. Every now and then, I’d like an object from clip B, say a tram, to suddenly appear over the top of the clip A and insert itself into the scene before it cuts entirely to clip B. Clip B’s dominant colour would greatly contrast with the dominant colour of clip A to highlight it’s out of placeness and draw attention to it. I would also like to overlay objects in an amusing way because of how out of place it is. Doing this in time with music would also help keep a sense of rhythm among the clip and I would like to use sounds from the shots and incorporate them into the music. If this isn’t possible, I would like to create a soundscape arranged of general city sounds, but ones that don’t necessarily correlate to the images on screen, repeating the out of place theme of the experimental short.
