Cast: Fred, Renee, and The Mystery Man
Info: This piece was made for the High-Jacking Hitchcock challenge at Buffyforums, where we are to take an aspect of Alfred Hitchcock's directing and work with it. I chose noir. I've always considered David Lynch to be a very modern day Hitchcock style director. He utilizes noir and interweaves stories with mystery and suspense like no one else. The film "Lost Highway" is perhaps my favorite because you can't watch it simply once. Otherwise, you would have no clue what was happening. The movie is about a man who goes utterly insane after murdering his adulterous wife, creating realities that do not exist. In each of them, are people, but the people are not real. They all represent pure emotion. I based this piece on his rage, which creates everything in the first place. I put him, Fred, at the base of the piece, with his wife above him in the corner of his mind. Between them, is The Mystery Man, the man in his subconscious that symbolizes rage. Also intermingled is the shot of the burning house and the Lost Highway Hotel. The hotel is basically the place in his mind which houses all of his realities. The burning house is a house that burns when he is angry, but remains unburnt when he is calm within his realities. I kept the colors black and white because I love the black and white Hitchcock films and felt it would fit for the challenge.
Title: Imitating Reality
Cast: Buffy and Dawn
Words: Bret Easton Ellis from "American Psycho"
Info: This was made for The Devilish Pick-Me-Up Roulette Fantastic Four Vending Machine challenge at Buffyforums. The basics around this one I wanted to show how Buffy's world's were blending together. I used the words from my second favorite novel of all time, "American Psycho", as the mental stability of the main character in that novel is at a constant breaking point. It seemed to fit here. The light stocks kept up with the pace of that blending of realities feel, which I liked. I kept the spotlight more on Dawn because she was the only part of the show that was not littered with confusion. All the other caps showed someone scared and confused, so I kept them in the shadows.
