Adaptation Part B- Source and Goal
For the rest of the year, I will adapt The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz.
Bruno was a Polish writer and fine artist, regarded as the leading writer between WW1 and WW2 as well as one of the greatest prose writers in 20th Century Poland.
The Street of Crocodiles is a short story in which he shares his childhood memories through a remarkable mix of real and fantastic storytelling elements, as well as figures of speech such as metaphors.
Concerning the goal of the project, I will adapt extracts from the short story, through the story's mood and metaphors, into a Digital set.
The Digital set will be shown through different shots (camera pan, zoom..)
It will also have animated elements in it as well as using sounds and atmospheric effects (rain, sunrise, wind..) in order to bring the piece to life and make the viewer feel part of it.
