The animation of filmic space, through the mixture scenography with other filmic elements, within selected works of Alfred Hitchcock.
Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon
This research aims to create a scenographic toolkit, for teaching and practical purposes.
It is based on how the filmic space is composed, mainly of scenography and secondly of other filmic elements (i.e. lighting, costumes, sound and music).
The theoretical analysis draws from Mitry, Deleuzes and Barthes’ theories on the image, as well as an adapted version Pavis’ Questionnaire, specifically for scenography.
The research focuses on Alfred Hitchcock’s scenographic and shooting techniques and uses anxiety as an analytic tool. The practice comprises the observations found in my research and applies them to an experimental combination of models and photographic collages.
