Instead of visuals, sound is given priority in filmmaking.
Conventionally, the visuals take precedence during filming. When we shoot a film, our focus lies very much on the visual elements, while the sound and music holds lesser importance.
Hence, we would like to explore the ways in which sound can be given priority instead, and to experiment with a different way of filmmaking.
Sound Film Experiment is a project, wherein a series of works will be created.
Each work is titled Sound Film ___ in chronological order. These films aim to explore how we can give priority to sound, and how this will affect the filmmaking process and
This concept follows a set of rules, which will be a constant in our experiments.
1) Camera monitors will be covered during filming.
2) All sounds are diegetic.
3) All visuals will be hidden during editing.
4) The filmmakers will only see the film during the screening.
Toogie's Trip to Bukuokuka follows a soul waiting on a lover. Reliving her memories with this significant other, she loses her way and descends into distorted dreams and fantasies where the bittersweet of pain and suffering begin to emerge. Guided by The Man in the Orange Suit, Toogie journeys across uncanny dreamscapes of her own devising. She encounters the masochistic tribesmen of the Bukuokuka Tribe and her own inner child, who aid her in revisiting her violent past. As the line between reality and fiction start to blur, Toogie both finds and loses herself in mindless violence. She becomes both the observer and the observed; her own gaze reminding us that like her, we are all voyeurs in our own perverse fantasies.
