Comments on other students work- Montage

Posted on Updated on

This week we we have been looking at Montage theory and having had a play around with it myself it has been interesting to see the effects that other people have created.

After watching Francesca Woodfield’s mash up it gave me a chance to think more about the theory and the different ways that the technique can be used.

I particularly liked the way that she juxtaposed the themes of political change with the more trivial change that comes with an X factor vote. Although the techniques she used were simple, repetition in particular clearly demonstrated the corruption behind peoples attitudes towards voting and political participation. As every good piece of film should it encouraged me to think, this time about how this attitude worryingly shapes British culture.

In the future I will take influence from this extrovert approach in order to juxtapose two themes.
