One of the ideas I mentioned in my blog last week was the beginning of an Alternate Reality Game. This idea has progressed into pre-production with early development into the production stage. The series now has a name, which will be called “Burial’s Edge” (subject to change). I originally chose the name “Third Eye Blind” which is the name of the band. Although the name sounds great, I changed it for conflicting reasons – one of which being it is the name of a band.
The collective will consist of multimedia pieces such as an array of portrait photography, mixed-media landscape photography, a short graphic novel, advertising for multiple cohesive marketing materials.
Through intermediate experimentation during the previous photography studio sessions, I have been able to take the photos and edit them to match the intergalactic theme that I am going for.
I used a photograph that I had taken of Adam last week and edited the photo to give him a third eye in the centre of his forehead. These edited photos can be used as world-building devices within the fictional universe that I want to portray. An extra-terrestrial clothing brand that specializes in 3-eyed Shifters.
The typographical logo that I created above is an idea of what I would like to achieve. It gives a dark, mysterious, yet dangerous vibe. This will most likely be changed in future depending on the direction I decide to take.
I continued to edit some more photos and this is what I have progressed with:
For this project I would like to effectively give an alternative perspective on the unusual lifestyle of these ‘creatures’ that have come from above. In the coming weeks, I will begin to develop storyboards and a story that ties the portrait shots all together in a 12-page graphic novel.
