L'image (3 de 3)



L'image on Vimeo
L'image :: Ou: Looking forward to remembering the experience... Julien parle de l'image. Celle que l'on projète, que la vidéo projète de nous, celle qui nous fait peur, celle que l'on recherche, que l'on souhaite exposer, contrôler, façonner :: Télé vs Vlogs, etc...

Montage est superbe Véro (dans les 3 vidéos)!
C'est intéressant ce qu'il dit Julien. C'est drôle parce qu'on ne se rend pas compte que tout le monde a les mêmes insécurités jusqu'à ce que quelqu'un le dise...
Et, pour revenir sur la vidéo et comment elle joue sur notre intimité...pour moi, être filmée est moins envahissant que d'être photographiée.
Mon voisin prenait des photos de mon chat et lorsque je suis allé le chercher, il m'a pris en photo 2 ou 3 fois, clic, clic, clic.
C'était 100 fois plus envahissant que quand tu me filmes Véro!
Voilà, long comme commentaire, eh?
Julien me fait parler!

Je suis contente:

1) que Julien te fasse parler. C'est le but d'un blogue: échanger nos idées, partager.

2) que tu ne me trouves pas trop envahissante avec ma caméra - ouf! ;)

3) que tu aimes les vidéos.

When listnening to Julien talk about experience and the capturing of the experience, it flashed me back to this weekend when I was filming my grandmother for my blog and I had a very similar sort of revelation. I was filming her entrain de parler de ces experiences et souvenirs et j'étais très concient du fait que dans ce moment j'était en train de capturer un moment a la place de la vivre, pour que je puisse la revivre dans le future après sa mort a la place de juste vivre le moment avec elle. Elle parcontre a vécus ses experiences et elle les as capturer avec la meilleur des machines à capturer, ça matière grise.

chris: EXACTEMENT. ma question: does it degrade the quality of the experience you are documenting, and if so, is it even worth recording in the first place? not an easy question to me, a guy who podcasts for a living!

Julien: i think we have to look at the situation from two angles... what is the experience? and who is experiencing the "experience". (warning: it's late and I'm tired so my thoughts are jumping all over the place... I hope this makes sense)
If you have a third, forth or fifth person watching you filming the scene or event, you filming or being filmed becomes part of their perception of the overall experience. We have to realize that everyone involved is expereincing the event from their own perspective. So I guess we can say the concept of experience is a subjective one and that every situation that occurs and is observed becomes a multifaceted experience.
For example, your experience that you are living is being filmed by Vero. But, Vero's experience is filming you. Two completely different experiences. And had a third person been there with you, say myself, watching you guys. Both you and Vero interacting would have be my experience. So in essence, that one event would have translated itself in to three seperate experiences each as valid as the next. I think the quality of the experience exists in the moment in which you are in and to the value that you give to what you are doing in that moment.

Back to filming and being filmed.... We have to take in to consideration is that the actual act of documenting the experience is an experience in itself and in my opinion has as much worth as the experience that is being filmed. However, you have to look inside yourself and see how much value or inmportance the act of documenting or being documented has to you. Maybe for you, it might not have much value, but for someone like Vero, for whom documenting and filming seems to be a very imortant part of her life, it might have a lot of value. So you have to ask yourself the question, as the person being filmed, does the act of being documented degrade what you are doing?

"Looking forward to remembering it rather than enjoying it." Une idée très séduisante. Ça me rappelle de l'un des plus beaux propos de Jean Renoir: "Le meilleur temps pour filmer un quartier d'une ville, c'est juste avant sa déstruction." Énigmatique mais vrai

Hm. If someone is filming something, the space of their concentration is focused not just on the matter at hand but on the framing, recording, and storytelling of it to a latter audience, rather than this person solely absorming, with 100% focus, the event happening before them. I don't think one has more or less merit than the other but of course the reality, or awareness, of this event for the person filming it is not the same.

As for whether or not an event is degraded by it being filmed... I would have thought that no. But it reminds me of a friend's wedding a few years ago, before and after the ceremony cameras were clicking away, but the couple specifically requested that during the ceremony no pictures be taken or no footage be filmed... I always wondered their reasoning behind that.
