Review Form Exercise: Es Devlin, the Art of Design
One of the highlights of the narrative on Es Devlin was how much of her work and her personality life were separated through the director’s choice of music and transitions. It created a balanced mood that it exhilarating (her work) and somber (personal life). As her work is larger than life in a visual sense, often working with cubes, digital devices and light, it is mirrored by the exciting music and a squared lense focusing on a montage of her work. Often this is without a part of an audio clip of the interview, sometimes it does, but cut in a pace that is as exciting as her work. One bright picture or video clip to another. Then it transitions to a softer music, and the frame expands to a cinematic frame and the audience is transported to her daily life, sometimes personal with family, but most of the time in her own space as she provides us with an insight of how her mind works and her creative process revealed. I think that takes the audience into a journey.
