“The handheld digital camera aesthetics of the Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield (via Strange Days)”
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Culture and Media. Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Humlab.
2009 (English)In: 16:9, ISSN 1603-5194, Vol. 7, no 32Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Abstract [en]

This article critically interprets the  aesthetics of the handheld digital camera—whereby the entire film consists of  “footage” shot by its characters in the style of a home video—using The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Cloverfield (2008) as case studies.  Riffing off the science-fiction technology of SQUID in Kathryn Bigelow’s film, Strange Days (1995), the aesthetics of  the handheld digital camera are analysed from three aspects: mobility,  omnivoyance and spectatorship.
