Filmmaking as an Act of Currere
In this paper, the author examines the idea that the currere method and the filmmaking process are intertwined. Film production requires creators to undergo significant regressive, progressive, analytical, and synthetic actions in order to produce visual media. The autobiographical journey undertaken using the currere method can take a number of forms, and filmmaking is one of those forms. Visual media production provides a multidimensional model for currere in practice. Different phases of the filmmaking process: pre-production, production, and post-production reflect the 4 stages of currere. While the delineations are not always clearly demarcated, the relationship between currere and film production is significant. In the end, the author calls for further filmmaking opportunities to be given to students.
