Narrative Idea1 by Chewy

Here is my first idea. You can help me develop it, or you can also DON’T GIVE IT A SHIT and POST YOUR OWN IDEAS.

(I’m totally not a screenwriter please forgive my unprofessionalism of this..)

Here are some elements I had in mind that might be about implement into the piece.

1. Several scenes with mixed genre of music and dance that shows a progressive storyline within revolutionary space.

2. A narrative story about traveling through time and space (draw a circle from one point back to the point)

3. Diverse relationship between dancers and visual. (Interact, Immerse, Create or Reflect)

4. Diverse use of technology and visuals originally, creatively, consistently but not overlap the clear storyline.

( I think the methods can be somehow duplicated but in a way that fits our content),

5. Use of music video/film making tech: music responsive, camera moving, post-production, color, VisualEX, etc.

Here is my rough structure of TONE and MOOD without detailed narrative. I’m sure we can come up with movement based on the music we choose.

We can either follow the storyline or just choose ONE music for the whole piece is fine too. ( ‘ –>’ = Creative Transitions)

Starts here –>

–> Classical scene ( Introduce the story.. Slow and elegant movement/visual)  –>

–> Contemporary/Impressionism/Jazz scene (Dream/Trip/Imagination starts.. dynamic interactive movements/visual)  –>

–> Funk (happy soulful zoom… funky and playful movements/visual) –>

–> hiphop/pop song (Powerful, Lyrical, Emotional, Engaging) –>

–> Electronic/dupstep (Really get crazy of dance/visual/lighting, the climax of the story)  –>

–> Back to classical  (Dream/Trip/Imagination ends.. ) –>

–> Ends here

Inspirations

Some examples I’ve collected from different aspects  that can be connected to this specific project. Since we discuss this piece is more video/narrative direction. I try to avoid too much interactive/techy stuff. If you are interested just contact me.

Watch them and get inspired !! Feel free to add more 🙂
