I used powerpoint to make my movie and then I used GarageBand to add a sound track to my move. I am yet to make a voice over. The script is here below this print screen of my movie.
The 40s is a decade that stands out for me. World war two was a life-changing event of the 20th century.
Rationing was introduced during immediate war by the UK government at the start of World War II, which was in 1939. After registering to a local groceries store, every individual received a ration booklet containing coupons.
Rationed items included: bacon, butter, sugar meat, tea, jam, breakfast, cereals, cheese, eggs, lard, milk and canned fruits.
Rationing also affected the ability to buy clothes at reasonable prices so women had to find a new way to keep up with the fashion. This was done by either owning a clothing book and exchange coupons that way or to start a ‘Make do and mend’ regime.
Lee miller is my chosen photographer of the 20th century. in the 20s she was a successful glamorous model for vogue magazine. She soon became bored of being a model and was determined to be on the other side of the camera.
The unfolding events of World War II would give her the excitement she has always been yet to discover.
In 1947 she had retired, got married and had her only son Antony Penrose with my chosen painter, Roland Penrose.
Roland Penrose is said to be an English artist, historian and poet, but whilst doing my research it appears that he is well know for his book writing and promoting of art in the United Kingdom.
Looking at Penrose’s work I feel although he was a good surrealist painter, being so close to talent as phenomenal as Picasso, automatically pushes Penrose’s work in the background.
Picasso always draws eyes bright which look a lot like his own. in this video the passion through his eyes is incredible as he improvises on glass.
World war ii allowed Picasso to portray his work in the same abstract surreal style by showing the war through his eyes.
The way Picasso starts drawing the female body is incredible as his style of art is different. He doesn’t start drawing the head and working his way down the body as most would.
