The part from grease where sandy puts paper in the water
Performance for camera, November 2019
Camera: Katie Grenville, Zeena Altai
Work in progress
During the performance, I stood in an empty paddling pool on Margate beach eating various ice creams in front of the camera. The filming includes the documentation and lead up to this event - blowing up the paddling pool, changing swimming costumes, coping with the cold, carrying on despite members of the public and dogs walking in front of the camera.
This video is going to be an absurdist parody of the video that accompanies the song hopelessly devoted to you, originally performed by the character Sandy in the film Grease. This video can be found here:
HOPELESSLY DEVOTED TO YOU - ORIGINAL VIDEO
From this performance, I have 2 hours of footage taken on a go pro and a DSLR camera. I plan on making this into a ten minute video that includes a spoken word voiceover and cuts from the original video from Grease.
Things I will be mentioning in the voice over of the film:
Sandy sings the song hopelessly devoted to you.
definition of hopeless:
feeling or causing despair
downhearted, lost, dejected, downcast, irreparable, unworkable
during the video, sandy:
throws her head back in elation
bites her lip in excitement at the beginning of the song
swings around the garden post, huge grin on her face
her hair does not change at all
her face does not change at all
