With all the research that I have done, I have come up with the idea of filming my journey on a bus and then creating some characters to add to the footage. I am going to make some characters out of different material and film a few different journeys on the bus or train.

Daydreaming while travelling

Everyone daydreams when they are travelling whether they are on a bus, train or in a car. When you daydream it maybe about the people getting on or off public transport or it could be all the noise that you here like people taking to each other or on the phone also maybe they are listening to music and you can hear every word.

You may look out of the window and look at the surroundings and think about whether certain things should be there like when you are on a train you may see graffiti or plants that have been planted in certain place to make the view look better. When you look out of the window on a bus you see people walking by, fields and peoples houses, some of the views are really nice to look at.

In this game you can create your own avatar and how you want your house to look, the avatars do not interact as all the people in the game have been created by the same person so they are all cotrolled by that one person

Salvadr Dali

Salvador Dali is a well known surrealist artist who created this piece of art which is called Dream and the dream is about Dali's wife Gala and some bees. When you look at the image you would not know what the dream was about, but you would be able to imagine your own thoughts about it. The tigers represent the Bees as they are the same colour.

The paintings below are some more of Salvador Dali's dream painting, you can tell that they are Dali's paintings as he has a particular style. When you look at the paintings you would not be able to think of the dream, you could make your own dream about them or thought on them too. Everyone has their own thoughts and interpretations about everything in life.

Brenda Ferrimani

Brenda Ferrimani is an artist who uses peoples dreams to create pieces of art. The Luna lights piece is of two dreams that are from the same person, one dream is about a cat called luna and the other dream is about the city lights and how beautiful they are. When you look at the image you can guess what the dream was about.

The two paintings below are some more of Brenda Ferrimani's pieces of art work that has been created from peoples dreams. I love the colours she has used as they are both bright and cheery, when you look at them you can make up your own version of the dream and thoughts on what it might be about, which people like to do with pieces of art.

Dreams & Sigmund Freud

Dreams and different dreams states Everyone dreams whether it is a daydream or a sleep dream. These fantasy worlds that we dream about can be wonderful places to escape from the real world and there problems.
Sigmund Freud researched about dreams with his work The Interpretation of Dreams. Freud researched into the theory and science behind dreams and all the different dream states, he discovered that we repress things during the day and when we sleep we relax and the dreams we have repressed during the day end up in your dreams.
"Dreams', he claimed, 'are often most profound when they seem most crazy" people seem to get more inspiration if their dreams are crazy or of something strange as this is usually something that you remember when you wake up, depending on te dream this may never happen.
Sigmund Freud has influenced so may people like Salvador Dali with his 'Dream' work and Andre Breton who is the leading thearist of the movemnet Surrealism.

Their are many different dream states like:
Daydreams which are classified as a level of consciousness between sleep and a wake, studies show that we daydream for 70-120 minutes a day.
False awakening dreams are when you think you have woken up and done your normal routine, only to wake up "again" to wake up and realise it was all a dream.
Lucid dreams are when you know you are dreaming and as soon as you realise you are dreaming you end up waking up.
Nighmares are a scary dream that causes you to wake up feeling scared and frightened, this could be because something traumatic happened.

What makes a fantasy world?

  • The fantasy landscape and natural world.

  • Races, societies and creatures.

  • Religions and magics.

  • Writing techniques and consideration for the fantasy author

Memories & Loss

I thought I could make a video of memories and loss. I could film bright happy clouds for memories and add an animation to that, for loss I would film dark clouds like at night and add animation to this and play them both along side each other so you would be able to see them both at the same time.




Advertising Campaign

I looked at D&AD briefs for ideas for my project and I saw this. They had a brief which was to design some new labels for Becks Vier and now they are wanting a new TV advertising campaign to advertise the new designs.

3D Light Scanning

3D light scanning is a perfect way of analyzing the real world as you are able to scan any 3D object like a sculpture or a human.

Computational Photography

Computational photography is a computer image processing, so you take multipule photographs of the same subject matter and then on the computer you then over layere the images to make a complete image. On all the photographs taken are slightly different because of the angel of light but the distance between where the photographs were take has to be the same for all of the images.
