A Photographic Storyboard
deep in the African continent. An isolated place, a sort of micro society, one of the last
European colonies. A fiction
The idea of this book starts with the experience I have made as a filmmaker, the storyboard as a drawing book, it doesn't make the camera director and the rest of the crew to understand what kind of Picture I want to shoot. The drawings in compare to photography didn´t have the potential to give the atmosphere from the pictures. The drawing is a tool which helps films and filmmaker interest in handling and acting. The book tries to make clear the relationship between the Film as medium and Photography and Painting and to liberate it from the trivial obsession of the masses by using a stringent acting and handling.
“Gravitation” is a film project. This Book is their Storyboard. As a filmmaker, I realised the drawing storyboard never help me to make the Camera and the Crew understand what kind of Pictures I want to shoot. The Photography have more suggestive power for the atmosphere I want to got in the picture I shoot.
“Gravitation” is a film project. The plot is set in no time, somewhere in Sahara
deep in African continent. A izolated place, a sort of micro society, one of the last
European colonies. A fiction. The political climate of this small city is dominated
by repression and fear. Utilizing a limited number of noirish claustrophobic sets,
composed pictures using suggestive objects and no need for stunts or major
special effects, “Gravitation” could be made on a limited budget.
