A case analysis of Dusty the Dirty Dog of Dogtown.
When I make works, generally it has many factors or layers to it, happening all at once.
As well as external motivators there are often internal research and analysis occurring, some of which I don’t understand or struggle to verbalise until it’s completed and even then, just don’t share it.
There is the micro aspect and then the macro, the bigger picture stuff. Here I’ll explain the macro stuff about this work as best as possible. -
After the homework was done I decided to keep going with my own project/exploration & motivations for the work in relation to my theme of the year (macro) “flipping the script” - this semester for me is all about understanding the story making process, and I’m currently exploring the beatboard process, the concept/rough story/idea stage before storyboard creation.
The stage where you basically come up with the guts of a story and make a few images of it, and if it’s shit you can cast it aside with ease and move on to the next having not invested too much of your time and energy into it. It’s like reading the summary of a book before deciding on committing the time reading it or watching a movie trailer before deciding to spend the money watching it. Eventually when you land on a good one, then move on to the next phase of story development, storyboarding.
A secondary or micro aspect of this work was to test the boundaries of what’s currently able with a phone. -
In one aspect I can say I made everything for this myself:
The concept, written, recorded the story & sound effects with my own voice and body, (The footsteps is me beating my chest to the beat of the rhyme)
Made the art and put it together digitally (video to present the pre-story idea and beatboard)
In truth, I couldn’t have done this alone. This is hella detailed but bare with me here :🏻
I made all the content myself ON PLATFORMS BUILT BY OTHERS
I depended not only on myself as an individual to make this(micro thinking) but also interdependently among all others who contributed. (Macro awareness)
