JIST: PROCESS OF A SHORT FILM by Beth Mackle
A5, 44 pages, full colour printing, saddle stitched, 2021
This booklet tells of a creative process towards planning a short film called Jist . It produces a narrative through the various mediums of experimentations with the notion of building work adjacent to moving image. My illustrations and mixed media work serve to aide my process of filmmaking. The plot of the short film itself is an allegory about the creative process. This body of work was devised during early 2021 lockdown, in the midst of realising it was unlikely I would be able to produce my short film but I didn’t want to dismiss all the work made in the lead up for the shooting of this film – So Jist now exists through this format instead .
