The project titled - ‘Just Before…’ uses students predominantly as subject matter and holds an emphasis on the representation of our generation. The work looks at films with an undertone of phobia as an insight into the human psyche, exploring ideas of representing fear within our society. By juxtaposing cinematic conventions, selecting stills from a narrative flow the viewer is given time to gaze at the scene presented to them. Directly taking influence and compositional features from the stills of old Hitchcock films, when the narrative itself no longer becomes the main focal point, ideas of tension, fear and suspense are made more apparent. By focusing on the moments just before the peak of fear, the repetition highlights the perpetual cycle of fear, the unknown, that has never been more relevant to current society.
