MACFP505 Masked Hero Hydra Steven Wells 1
MACFP505 Final MA Project:
A student decides to search for a masked hero after seeing a mysterious blog video on: http://plymouthmysteries318.weebly.com/ .
The video explores the following ideas.
01: To promote the University of Plymouth. Cool filming kit is shown to the audience!
02: To promote the City of Plymouth. People are interviewed in the street about what they like most about the city.
03: To mix reality with fiction. Documentary at the start blends into the super hero part later.
04: To mix Western and Eastern Conventions together. Shaky cam genres mixed with masked heroes from Japan plus screen layouts much like Hong Kong TV.
05: To use experimental film-making to tell a conventional story. The story is simple but all these ideas are mixed under the surface in many layers. Pay attention to the designs of the monsters and the main character, notice what the people interviewed say on their second question.
06: To create a multimedia experience.
http://plymouthmysteries318.weebly.com/ , expands on the world.
07: To set the beginning of a larger world.
This video acts as a pilot short.

LEGO Megabloks MCFP502 Aesthetics and Technology Final Project resident evil bioshock
Video Project for this term of my Masters Degree Contemporary Film Studies.
MCFP502 Aesthetics and Technology
The narrative of this video links with the video MEDI117 Evolution and Depict competition video 1 The Life Maker. Which is why I chose to have the video start in black and white.
The Man in the Suit is up to no good again in the name of science.
The evolution project where they force creatures to evolve is still going on.
The human hand found in the brick world is taken in to be use to cross dimensions.
The list of things in this video:
It reflects how people don't care for their toys as they are just mindless objects. The brick people look at humans in this video in the same way. A reverse reflection and look at human life through the evil scientists.
Next is a hinted annoyance I have with many student movies about student life and starting with a student getting out of bed. Hence killing it! Damn lay student movies...
And of course using lego and other bricks, usually seen as children's toys to portray an adult narrative.
Filmed with a Cannon 5D HdSLR as an experiment that gives it that special look.
Yes the evolution part was inspired by bioshock, hence the bioshock music.
Yes he did say meeting with Albert Wesker, hence the Resident Evil music.
Yes that was a Kamen Rider 1 Monster at the end, hence the Kamen Rider The First Music.
Please comment and thank you for watching!
