Mobile Movies – The Making of a Romantic Silver Bracelet by Alix Carmichele

Share

I am delighted to publish this wonderful mobile movie with accompanying story and technique by Alix Carmichele, she has created a film that encompasses a range of skills. From the actual creation process of the film itself, to the editing and music and of course to the actual development of the silver bracelet. It’s quite a wonder. I asked Carmichele to tell me more, you will enjoy this:

The object of making this little movie was to see whether I could use the time lapse or stop motion process to show the intricacies of making a beautiful piece of jewellery and come up with an understandable visual experience. The Hipstamatic combination of John S + the D type plate seemed to lend itself to the romanticism of the the actual concept of firing silver and melding it into something unique and desirable.

The time it took to shoot allowed me to see and come into close contact with a jeweller honing her craft and I wanted to share this experience with whomever I could, it’s almost a voyeuristic view of the creative process.

Technical: Hipstamatic John S + D type plate and over 1500 frames shot and put together in Time-Lapse app, then exported and edited in the Splice app. Music and other sound devices were added and there is a subliminal thread of words that I hope binds the entire process. The actual bracelet could be made in a week, but because it was a collaborative effort to show its inception to its final birth, the whole project took a period of 5 months to film.
