About the project
A new approach to the creative process of film and game production
Exploits DirectorNotation to create and develope notation-based tools that:
support the artist in pre-visualizing his intention (through 3D animation)
enable the artist to communicate his intention to production crew
Facilitates a detailed description of the production process (affects the production cost)
DirectorNotation is a symbolic language intended to express the form and content of film much as Labanotation provide a language for documenting dance. It thus constitutes a new approach to the creative process of filmmaking as it provides a pre-record of a complete description of film content. Musicians, and also choreographers, have long been able to express, clarify and share their intentions or document an artistic creation, using logical symbolic structures (music notation and dance notation). Yet, those working in the movie industry have to rely on storyboards and verbal description, and the only record of their artistic “object of appreciation” is the final film itself. What is essential in DirectorNotation is that a film Director can record a complete description of his conception that assists him to decide and choose so to clarify his intentions both on form and content of the film in a pre- production stage. The appropriate preparation and the pre-visualization of the shots through a created software, before going actually to the field of filming will not only conserve time and money but it will also assist the process of montage in the post-production phase.
