  1. 1. Progression Presentation Nazlican Dag
  2. 2. Job Roles and Industry preferences The reality of the intensity and hardship involved in joining the film industry is something that I am very aware of so I know that it is very important to portray my eagerness and passion for the industry. The main roles that I would like to undertake professionally are director, editor and DOP. I have always been mainly immersed with the creative side of filmmaking and being at University for the past three years has confirmed this trait of mine. I try to immerse myself within the producing and theoretical side of things as much as possible but as a whole I am more complimented to the creative roles. I feel as though creativity goes well with spontaneity and a personal characteristic of mine is act on impulse and I feel that it is important to be able to take risks and act on a sudden thought occasionally in order to add excitement to a project.
  3. 3. Job Roles and Industry preferences Directing – Once again a personal characteristic of mine is a natural leader, I like to lead groups; directing films is a time where I am able to freely lead and direct people in order to create a piece of art. The Director is the driving creative force in a film's production, and acts as the crucial link between the production, technical and creative teams. The reason the role of director best suits my persona is because I generally feel as though I initiate an idea and therefore would like to direct it myself as it is my own vision. DOP - The role of the Director of Photography or Cinematographer is to provide a film with its unique visual identity, or look. To be a successful DOP it is important to have an eye and attention for detail. Films are prominently experience through vision so it is important to be able to have a wide mind-set where you are able not to opinionated and open to new ideas and creations. DOP is a very prominent role as ultimately it is their role to decide how the film will generate visually and once again this involves the creative side of filmmaking, which is what I would most like to immerse in. Editor - The way a story unfolds and grabs the attention of the audience is one of the most important elements in filmmaking. To ensure that the story flows effortlessly from beginning to end, each shot is carefully chosen and it is an editor’s role to decide these shots and make the final decisions on what looks good on screen. The idea of having a lot input into this and working closely with the director is something that excites and attracts my attention.
  4. 4. Inspiring Directors Jaco Von Dormael Belgian Director Von Dormael is one of my favourite directors at the moment as his approach with film Mr Nobody was something I have never before seen. The film is very enticing, very confusing and very complicated but beautiful to watch. It is important for me as a filmmaker and as a viewer to have an opinion on a film that I watch. If after viewing a film I have no opinion or feel very neutral towards it then that film is a failure, I always aim to generate opinion with the work I create whether it be god or bad an opinion is what I look for from my audiences and naturally this is what I expect from films that I also watch. Mr Nobody is an extremely colourful and possibly postmodern film it varies in terms of genre and the mix of time frame creates an exciting cycle within the film. The Wachowskis – The Matrix As cliché as it may sound but I am big fan of the Wachowskis purely for their immaculate creation known as the Matrix, the idea, the choice of cast, the mixture of genres and intertexuality within the film all works so well. Initially the almost sci-fi appeal of the film is something that would push me away from it however the Matrix is almost a journey that we as viewers experience and use of androgyny between Neo and Trinity and the extent of the special effects and the story line within itself are so much deeper then it initially seems from first glance. For this reason I am very inspired by this duo of filmmakers.

  6. 6. Evaluation of previous work To view evalutaton on my previous work go on to my blog at http://anazlicandagfilm.tumblr.com/ i have unfortunately been unable to post all my work online due to legal issues however the majority of them are on the blog.
  7. 7. Show reel research – I think in terms of show reel the most important things for me are to showcase my art and myself in the most effective manner. I aim to create a show reel that does not bore an audience; I find that when something is direct and gets straight to the point the impact on an audience is more effective. I have pondered the Internet and found a few examples that I am fond and I will be immersing some of the ideas from these to my own show reel.
  8. 8. Example 1 - Josh Parks – Student Showreel: This student has created a very sort but effective showreel. He has highlighted his specialty, which is clearly editing; he highlights his talent in colour correcting and adding images onto footage in editing. In images below he shows us how he has added buildings and located them evenly. He then goes on to show us how he has added the snow, the fog, and the colour correction.
  9. 9. Example 2 student showreel This next showreel is very different as it is an animation showreel however it is successful as it showcases the students art as the main focus unlike the first one which is more showcase of the skill rather then the artistry. As I naturally focus more on the artistry as that is what I mainly focus on. I am very fond of this showreel because it is also very light-hearted and very simplistic.
  10. 10. Strengths and Weaknesses What are your advantages? I am a creative person and I like to take risks with my work in order to create something new, odd or interesting. What do you do well? I work well with cameras and avid but my main trait is guiding a group to complete a vision that we are working towards creating. Why did you decide to enter the field you will enter upon graduation? I realised that I enjoy film massively after I begun immersing myself in the subject in 6th form. Prior to that I was always interested but never thought to actual take it up as a career path. What were the motivating factors and influences? My family and particular my sister are my most influential and motivating factors. I have always been told to pursue what makes me happy no matter how hard. Do these factors still represent some of your inherent strengths? My family and upbringing strangely always play a very important role in how I attempt to make a film. I am a very open minded person and this is something that has been unfluence from my family however in addition to my personal influences I am also very influence by foreign directors. What need do you expect to fill? What have been your most notable achievements? A film I created at the end of my second, which I received a high grade for, is one of my most personal notable achievements. But not because of the grade, the outcome of the film is so much better then what I expected it to be and the amount of effort and tiem that went into creating this film made the outcome more victorious. How do you measure your success? As long as I am content with what I am making then I consider myself adequately success. In terms of audience success, I measure my films successful if an audience has an opinion on it. However if an audience is bleak and has no opinion about my film then I will consider that film a failure. Even if an opinion is bad I appreciate it. Weaknesses What could be improved? I feel as though sometimes I should think twice about certan decisions. I have a tendancy to make rash decisions not thinking enough about the consequence or possible negative outcome. What do you do badly? I find it difficult to deal with stress so I feel as though I need to remove myself from situations to overcome these issues. What should you avoid? Conflict.
