Sweded film

This week we got put into groups and got given a brief which was to create a 2 minute sweded version of a film. Our group got given 'Eraserhead', a film which no one in our group had seen or even heard of!

We went to the library to research and watch some clips from 'Eraserhead which we discovered is a surrealist film set in a post-apocalyptic world about a couple who give birth to a mutant baby. We decided on the key aspects of the film we wanted to focus on for example the woman in the radiator scene representing the main protagonists suicidal thoughts and insomnia and the bleeding chicken foreshadowing the baby being killed.

We were proud of the outcome and I really enjoyed this task. I forgot how fun film making was and I'm looking forward to making some more this year!
