fatik – PortraitPlan

For this project I really liked the fact that I had to capture a quiddity of my partner. So my first instinctive step was to really get to know her. After a first couple of quick talks and meet ups I forgot how much actual time and effort it requires to really get to know someone. I honestly couldn’t even think of a medium or anything like that because it felt like I didn’t know this person enough to even make anything. So I decided to at least document my process of getting to know her.

I’ve been playing around with some of the cameras and I’ve been planning on using them to document our meetings and hangouts. I’ve also been kind of stalking her and trying to document her in moments of real time and capturing her persona.

We’ve been chilling quite a bit and I think what I end up with is going to be a bunch of clips of us doing random things together. I’m still uncertain of what I am going to do exactly but I thought of making a short film with these clips really thinking about Jean-Luc Godard’s Kuleshov and how he was able to convey different feelings with assembly from parts. I am also very inspired by Koyaanisqatsi and how many different clips achieved so many odd emotions, situations, and insights.
