Project Title: visual design and editing techniques influence the documentary (visual components) in specific aspects of the filmmaking process (cinematography and postproduction).
My subject of study is how to use visual design and editing techniques so that the film has greater impact and engagement with the audience. Visual design and editing techniques are two aspects that can communicate mood and emotions. My final film is a documentary. My documentary has two parts. The first part was shot in the Ace Café, London. The second part was shot in in Beijing at the Mandrill Café and the Ace Café. I hope to explore the sub culture and language of the café racer in Britain and China. Riders say that the goal was to be able to reach 100 miles per hour (160 km/h)—called simply “the ton”—along such a route where the rider would leave from a café, race to a predetermined point and back to the café before a single song could play on the jukebox. This is called “record-racing.” Every café racer has their own story’. My documentary is examines café racers culture in different countries.
