The Interpreter’s house 4: Hashtag research

Hashtag is very popular media tool which makes it easier for users to find specific messages of themes and contents. Hashtags are mostly used as discussion forums; any combination of characters led by a hash symbol is a hashtag, and any hashtag, if promoted by enough individuals, can “trend” and attract more individual users to discussion using the hashtag.

I use Twitter to hashtag something which relate to Indian animation and Indian stop motion. It’s really helpful to find the specific content about indian or short animation film about India. I hashtag Indian animation, there are many animation about Indian. The filmmakers did a really good job on it. For example, I find a short animation video call Pour I’ amour de Dieu (For the love of God). this video was shared in Vimeo. Through this video, I rethink something about our Indian’s project, I think our project is not clearly to show something directly about Indian. Taking this video as an example, there are not any dialogue in this video, but we can definitely sure these video relating to Indian. The first thing is that the filmmaker used images of Indian’s dressing style and then they use Indian’s Buddhism, so thought these two characters we can definitely understand this is a story talking about India. they use symbol about India.

Because of this animation, I learn how to use some symbols of indian to display my Indian project, and make it more specific on Indian project.

In addition, our group is doing lego stop motion to display Indian project but I have not any experience about how to  make a stop motion film. So we took almost serval hundred of pictures, and then putting them together to making a roughly stop motion. well It’s not that bad but the video is not look smooth and delicate. I hashtag #Indian lego stop motion, there are not any relevant information about indian lego stop motion, but there are some stop motions which are inspired me a lot. For example the one stop motion call Rediffmail NG – OPENING DOORS, in this stop motion, I realize that the technique is not most important thing that you think about it. A good story and patience are primary things you need to consider. Although this video is not about lego stop motion, it also make sense. they do a lot work on it, many took thousand or ten thousand to finish these video.
