As we can’t show the children we will illustrate their plight through emotive cinematography of the mnemonic device, the kite. With beautiful choreography of lighting and camera movement we will capture the mood of the scenes. It will be most important to communicate as much as possible through sound design. I feel the imagination will be left to fill in the gaps, which may even make it more powerful than if we filmed the scene for real. This will be the key to touching our audience without accusing any particular groups of wrong doing. It should not feel like we are targeting any particular socioeconomic groups, rather we want to communicate the sheer helplessness of the ‘innocent children’.
Dummy Head recording (http://www.dpamicrophones.com/en/Mic-University/Stereo-Techniques/binaural-stereo.aspx) is a precious tool bringing the movie into a near-first hand sound experience.
