Modern Red Teaming - subverting mature defenses on a budget
1. Development of my ideas
Frank Styles documentary
My first idea is to do a documentary on Frank Styles' work. It was my first idea as I saw his work
throughout Sunderland and the Northeast. I am going to include an interview and ask him broad
questions about his art, career, and future. I want to film the interview at one of his artwork locations, I
am going to get Frank to choose the location to make it more personal as the artwork could be one that
he is most proud of, popular and personal to him. The type of content I want to collect would be
interview footage and some cinematic shots of his artwork through the documentary. The type of shots I
want to create is medium close – to have Frank in the middle of the frame at eye level and create direct
mode of address. For the cinematic shots I want to create cut away and create a sound bridge.
Sunderland’s culture short film
My second idea is to make a short film on Sunderland’s history and culture. I was going to highlight the
different landmarks, buildings, creative areas and what is next for Sunderland. The audience watching
this would make them realize how interesting Sunderland is and how it might be neglected compared to
the rest of the Northeast; but there is still hope for Sunderland.
2. Stadium of Light concerts
My third idea is a documentary on artists coming to the Stadium of Light. There have been loads of
artists performing at the stadium throughout the years and I want to show the diversity, communities
and how these concerts bring the people of Sunderland together. I am going to talk about how these
concerts do not only attract the people of Sunderland to see them, but also people will travel down to
Sunderland because there might not be a venue in their city. Also, I am going to talk about if you are a
season ticket holder for the local Sunderland AFC football club, you get priority of seats. This means that
being part of Sunderland and their events has their benefits.
My decision was going to be documenting Frank Style’s work and getting to know his art pieces and his
creative process. I don’t think this idea is going to happen because of communication issues and
Going forward I am going to do a documentary about Sunderland’s Stadium of Light concerts they have
hosted. I am going to include who came to the stadium to perform, the date, why this is beneficial for
Sunderland and their culture.
This Idea fits the brief because it is about Sunderland’s culture and the stadium is part of Sunderland’s
culture. Doing this documentary, I am going to be bringing music culture and the stadium’s culture
together in one documentary.
