Beautiful and Grotesque Scenes

Everything below are screenshots from dozens of films and clips I’ve been compiling. I am currently trying to formulate a narrative to begin mincing them into a new film. Some are beautiful and some are grotesque beware.

In order to begin thinking of the 3 act narrative of the new film I draw from the book ‘The Myth Gap’ I have been reading to describe the acts as follows:

Act 1: Facing a real Event – describing reality as it is

Act 2: Dealing with the Event – help people face the reality (lamentations)

Act 3: Prophecy – constructing hope for the future

These are very general themes that can propose a new way media-scapes can construct news. Specificity in their content is still needed.

    This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axTSc3e6wu8) remind me of some of the footage you describe here. Lot of close-up, large landscape, B&W slow-mo… have a look ! Also this one is nice : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFggLJxv9zA
