The brief

The task within this project was to create and write a brief as if someone was going to under take the project without having a clue what to do. The whole point of the brief is to be understood and written well enough for that person to produce a video .

Anthropomorphism Taxidermy

Leave a comment

Browsing across YouTube researching about all this anthropomorphism i came across this video which i found very interesting. It’s about a taxidermist called Sue Jeiven who creates all stuffed animals into having human characteristics. Here is the video below:

As i wasn’t happy wit my logos before hand i re-designed them. Looking back on my research on logos i decided i wanted my logo to stay simple but unique and be ME! Here is my Logos:

I really wasn’t fond or happy with the font on my logo, so i decided to change it to the font below.

Alfred Hitchcock

Seeing as i love Alfred Hitchcock and his films i wanted to find a link between anthropomorphism and his films. I didn’t think that this was no way possible, but with a lot of research i managed to find bits upon anthropomorphism in Alfred Hitchcock films especially psycho.

Hitchcock was fascinated by inanimate objects of which suggest life, however it seems that within his films he implied death rather than life within the inanimate objects. An example of this occurs with the bread knife shown in “Psycho” (1960). The knife showed that it had some kind of symbolic power even though it is an inamniate object, it was also showing that it was going to end a life therefore the knife represented death. There are many anthropomorphism elements in Hitchcock films, considerably seen more from the interiors which are filled with paintings and sculptures. Such as the large stuffed bird in Psycho that is seen appearing over the shoulder of Norman Bates. Not only do we see anthropomorphism in inanimate objects within his films but we also sees it in the house that appears in Psycho, the house itself has creepy and uneasy characteristics to it.

Another occurrence of this appears in the film “The Amityville Horror” (Rosenberg – 1979), the house seems as though it has some symbolic power, the house almost makes the audience feel petrified and tense just by looking at it.

Hitchcock clearly showed anthropomorphism within all these objects by only using tense music and camera angles to connect his film with the audience.

“There is no terror in a bang, only the anticipation of it” – Alfred Hitchcock

This quote above really caught my eye whilst researching as shall bear in my mind whilst creating my project.

Researching all this lead me to finalise my idea for my project. I had to and just wanted to create a film containing anthropomorphism. Learning that there is so much more to this topic that meets the eye, I just wanted the challenge to try and convey all the different meanings and elements behind a film containing anthropomorphism.

A massive challenge is ahead of me, and I’m ready!

Anthropomorphism

For my major practical project I had to pick a topic and undergo to the final outcome. I decided that i wanted to produce a short film based on anthropomorphism. But what is anthropomorphism?

Anthropmorphism is the Attribution of human motivation, characteristics, or behavior to inanimate objects, animals, or nature such as these shown in the images below:

Interveiw

Leave a comment

As a part of my project i have to be given a interview where the questions/ setting will be exactly how it would be if i was to have a real interview in a design company. Yes this was pretty nerve wrecking.

My set date for my intervewiw is that 10th December, so from now to then i decided to research and be prepared for what the interview may entail.

Below are some website that i came across whislt reaching into what kind of questions a design company may ask me at an interview:

It was important for me to be prepared and ready for this interview so research was important for me seeing as i had never been in this situation before (well going for a design job) Ive had interveiws but obviously before them i done research into the company etc.

Getting prepared for my interview i had to create a portfolio so the interviewer can see the design work that i have produced. I also had to take a CV and cover letter with me.
