R: the string is catching onto it (the lock) so its getting caught and I cant, it wount go down so I have to pull it from the closer strings

Me: okay, thats okay
( to racheal) im going to leave it here now, lets switch places

(I stich the sting back onto it place with masking tape)

Now pull it a bit

Slightly, okay, now I have to leave it down a bit

Its actually to do with the angle aswell

R: yep,and it keeps getting caught up.

Me: yeah you’re right we do need some balm

This is so exciting

Okay

Oh my god right now it looks so funny

 

R: it looks like this right (reinacts the motion of the arm, again)

Me: yeah

R: (laughs)

R: what happens when you move the grid?

Me: lets do it ( I start moving the grid)

B: Stop! Stop! You cant do it like that. Take it off the..

( come over and moves the joints to rotate the grid)

take it off these or you are going to break these

Me: no because they are not actually joint to it yet

B: yes they are
(to me ) angle it

Me: angle it? Okay so now im angleing it like this yes? So this is just aidfferent angle

R: maybe it will move differently now

Me: we need to lock these into place (locks the grid)

Right okay (pulls the sring)

Wow look at that now, that’s crazy the movement changes so much

(to racheal) now pull it a bit more, pull it a bit more

R: I cant see it

Me: you can actually brign it all the way up, tahts so funny

B: move it your mving it too fast( to take the pictures)

Me: oo okay do it again

B: don’t move it yet

Me: okay

(continuous picture goes off)

Me: (to racheal) pull it down for a second, its so high up, can you see it from the other side when its high up?

R: yes, tahts the only time I can see it

Me: (to racheal) come here, switch places again, I want you to view this

B: I think we have got enough shots but you need to actually be doing something, you are not doing anything

It needs to be precise so you actually need to be acting this out not playing around

Me: that’s the point, I don’t want to determine the situation

(to racheal) narrate what you are doing racheal ) im not doing anything right now

 

R: im pulling the right string, the back arm is moving slightly

Pull yours a bit (to me)

Me: is that enough?

R: okay hold it there

Im trying to put it into the pocket but then..

Pull yours down a little (to me)

No no I meant let go of it

Okay can you hold it

Me: okay holding

Me: try pulling it a lot, it moves so differently now the grid has moved

R: yeah it does, its so weird the way it moves, its like its waving

B: start from the bottom please( to me)

3,2,1

B: okay I think we may have gotten the shots

Racheal thank you

Me: racheal thank you very much

( racheal leaves)

racheal opens the door with the strings on it

(the garment moves)

B: come look at the photos, I think the beauty of it is when the grid moves and the shifting of the angles

Me: oo wow and you can see people going in and out of it.

B: yes I was shooting continuously, I think you can make a really nice stop motion out of this

This is what he is talking about that’s why you need lots of frames

Because he wanted me to film mine with the jacket influx moving, now that we can change it we can do that
