Continuing on with the same subject as the previous two projects, this piece always had the intention of being a very reflective piece. This was the main idea I was working with from the beginning, with the hope that this self-reflecting piece would explore the very reasons he may be seen as a rebel. This developed greatly when the filming process began, and I was able to once again witness him in his most comfortable state, away from all the distraction and pressures he faces. To fully explore this idea, I featured a sit-down interview, which along with the film being captured, was my best chance to convey the message.
From the very beginning, I wanted this audio piece to take the listeners on a journey, from start to end. To do this, I felt the need to incorporate three different layers throughout the piece, that being voice, atmosphere and foley. The audio piece is follows the subject of my rebellion series, carried on from my last project, which focused on a University student using sport to rebel against expectation.
The creation of a photo series, portraying the concept of a living ‘rebel’ was one in which put forward several challenges, but as a whole, presented an opportunity to create a series using techniques and skills that were only just beginning to be developed. Considering who may be a suitable person to participate in this photoshoot proved to be one of the more significant obstacles throughout this process, as it was crucial to truly understand the idea of a rebel.
