It’s a great privilage to be one of the digital residency recipients for the Jane Phillips Award.
During these 3 months I will try new techniques in photography and explore Swansea . My first project will explore a technique called ICM – a technique and an artistic way of expression. Something I have enjoyed exploring recently .
The Mystery of an image. It forces my imagination to work.
A painting with a natural light and I love this.
I am inspired by Claud Monet, french painter .
I have focused on textures and colours seen within the landscape, creating one of a kind impressions of a forest in a longer exposed time frame.
Time is key here, as time is the only thing that is constant. You can’t stretch or squeeze it, only the perspective can change. So this is my perspective of a time, represented in a ICM photography style.
This is the opening shot to the episode, setting the location and mystery the episode will follow.
Ext shot, hill with trees, panning down hill
Follows straight from one, shot up river with buildings in the background, camera pans down into 3
Camera pans down into final position
Camera onto body lying on slab stones/concrete, hold for a few seconds, let music well up and smash cut into next frame
*All p/in/p videos fade in and out*
Half profile shots of the two leads of the episode (a police investigator and the leader/ sub-boss of the biker gang suspected of the murder. Beside each are small videos showing actions of the upcoming episode to give a brief insight to the characters.)

Main title card for the episode, pic 1 is independent, while 2 and 3 are together.
Black background, title fades in, followed shortly by episode title
Series title fades in as a snowstorm starts to pick up (going from upper left to lower right), flows into pic 3.
White background with vignette around border, episode title fades in black letters (possibly with episode count underneath)
I have a new project to complete for my university course, called ‘Winter is Coming.’
The aim of this project is to create an opening title for a fictional anthology series called ‘Winter is Coming,’ with each of us creating a basic outline for an episode and constructing the opening title sequence around that.
Below you will find some preliminary notes I made about the project.
Winter is Coming opening credits
Nordic/Gaelic/Welsh noir inspired
Typically from the perspective of the police (most commonly dealing with murder)
Sometimes deal with corruption of government
Slow burn tension and drama
Opening title to be 60-90 seconds long
Can either be an opening scene with credits or more traditional opening credits (like a montage)
Winter is Coming- anthology series style
Episode style/story notes-
Cops vs bikers (Ragnarök, name for Biker Gang)
Corrupt local government official funding bikers (either through drugs or weapons)
Police pick up the trail after a body is found, suspected be a gang killing
Bikers preparing for a war with other gangs
Opening credits content notes-
Opening shot of dead body central to plot
Majority of credits are a close up of the two leads (separately) faces, half on show, over a black background while short clips from the episode fade in and out beside them
Leads= lead investigator and biker gang leader
Clips showcase the characters personalities through actions (such as arrests for the cop and beating someone for the gang leader)
End of credits feature the series title (Winter is Coming) and the episode title (Ragnarök) as a subtitle.
Alternative: Main title comes up, a “snowstorm” covers it over in white and replaces it with Ragnarök.
