BA (Hons) Media Production
My name is Elena Bytyqi, a media production graduate. I have always enjoyed creating documentaries in a traditional sense. By this, I mean interviewing your subject face to face, aswell as working with a large crew. I also enjoy creating mix media collages for my online portfolio and social media pages which involve the use of embroidery, Photoshop, old book pages and more.
However creating a documentary within lockdown restrictions has proven to be an obstacle, though it also gave me the opportunity to merge these two art forms together and use it to my advantage, creating a documentary purely with handmade collages and animation to support the interview, which took place over Zoom.
My final media project, 'Hope' is a short, experimental documentary which explores the personal story of domestic abuse. This documentary was a solo project and it gave me the opportunity to showcase my skills and essentially pushed me to become much more creative and I feel that 'Hope' really displays the subjects story in an intimate way.
