New Narrative Students

The new first year creative practice for narrative environment students showed their first projects today to the staff. Excellent and very varied work - some very witty films and interesting pieces.

The idea was that the pieces should communicate without the need for a commentary - this was much easier if using a film or power point but was not really the object of the exercise - I'm wondering whether we should discourage film next year as the idea is to explore how an object or objects can convey meaning.

Some pieces communicated very well without commentary, some became very rich but only once explained and others were weakened by explanation. There were some interesting examples of how the way a story is revealed can heighten excitement or interest, with other examples of how premature knowledge can destroy the interest that comes from speculation.
