“Growth is a process of trial and error: experimentation” – Benjamin Franklin
Below is a collection of sketches, still images and videos showing my thought processes. I am simply trying to determine the fundamentals of making good composition. Although successfully using the techniques is important, I believe the video looking visually pleasing is as important too.

Above the sketch shows the simple arrangement of polaroids. My intention is to be close enough to the polaroids and pan from left – right – upwards – left in a smooth wave motion. After the last polaroid is seen I will zoom out to show a image of them all as seen in image above. Below are my visual results and critics:
✅ Freedom of camera movement. ❎ Shaking in movement. Stabiliser? Alternative idea?
✅ The contrast between polaroids images / videos and burgundy background. ❎ Alternatively using additional light to make bigger contrast and improve quality of picture.
❎ – More creative arrangement. Alternative Idea?

After trying the first idea I wanted to use a range of different clips instead of one continuous one in order to develop a montage.
