The project is to generate a coherent documentary out of fragmented footage and material, or found footage, with which I had no control over the production. The material was shot by non-filmmakers, about a specific subject, but with no coherent line of narrative or clear structure (essentially a series of anecdotes). Through research and study of fragmented narrative structures, found footage practice and cinematic theory surrounding documentary and montage, I will devise a structure and outcome that suits this material and subject. This process will provide insight into the making of documentary cinema and the problems it faces in the contemporary media climate, as well as explore innovative techniques for documentary story-telling.
