Initial clips – flash/reflective fabric
I started by looking into the darkroom process of light/exposure. I hired a big flash gun, stobe lighting and a red gel and started experimenting.
This clip shows the effect of a flash gun on film capturing.The effect is white strikes across the screen.
I wanted to see the effect of a flash gun on reflective fabric, but the results didn’t really work how I expected. However I did achieve a nice effect with transition of lighting/gels . See the 2 clips below:
I really like the red to white transition from this clip
My inital idea was show the process of the darkroom, apply this to a font without using a darkroom.
The satges are
expose – light
develop – chemical
stop – chemical
fix – chemical
wash – water
Therefore my font would change in response to these stages.
I went to an talk by Why Not Assiotiates to give me some inspiration.
I especially liked this.
