Cuba St. Filming

Maddy here

For our film we wanted to gather footage of women, shot in the vertical format of Miriam’s mobile phone, waving at the screen in a public location. With our trusty tripod/mobile phone contraption in tow, we went down to Cuba St in the center of Wellington city to find our subjects. We filmed women from a range of ages and ethnicities, capturing around twenty different people. The set up time was drastically different from that of a professional film rig, allowing us to quickly and easily capture our footage on the go. miriamwave copy

With this footage we wanted to highlight the mobile phone’s portrait composition and the way in which this alters our perception of the female figure on screen. To accompany these images a voice over will read “We demand the right for change! We demand the right for women to stand tall! We demand vertical!”
