After showing this film to a few groups I’ve received an overall positive response to the film. People have been complimenting the humble yet intimate results of the piece. Also, most importantly they commented on how they enjoyed how the audio and image were in sync (e.g. it comes into focus and the audio becomes clearer), which is what I wanted to be one of the main focus points of the film, so I’m really pleased that this came across well.
I’ve also used these results to help decide on how I want this to shown at my exhibition show. Considering what has become a resounding intimate and private video, I thought that the viewer should be as immersed in it as possible. So for the exhibition I want the piece to be playing on a computer set up in a room/corridor on a loop with a set of one of two headphones and people can walk up to the piece and have all their attention on the audio of the piece without being distracted by other noises so hopefully they’re drawn into the piece really well. I’ll be working on getting that sorted when we begin organising for the exhibition over the next few weeks.
