In this week of Helping Mitch, we break out of the flashback sequences and return to present reality. Sharon, Mitch’s mother, is having a private conversation with the specialist and unfortunately Mitch happens to overhear a rather damaging comment.
In my little fictitious world, I believe that Sharon is a good person, however flawed. The scene examines the desperation of a character who has heavily depended on her son after her husband’s death. After Mitch’s accident, she has been largely in denial and living with unrealistic expectations. Through the tilted camera angle and dialogue, my intent for page 9 is to capture Sharon’s overwhelming anxiety as she slowly slips out of composure.
If you are new to Helping Mitch or need a quick refresher of the story, you can find all the pages here.
Reflection on process
Oh the glorious struggle! So much so that I’m saving this space for an update tomorrow as I will need an extra day to compile the process. There will be lots of good material on the struggle with perspective, composition and the last minute editing which I’m making while typing this in a failed attempt at multitasking. So if you are interested in the process of Helping Mitch, please stay tuned 🙂
