I hope to convey the sense that place has a significant impact on the people constantly involved with it, and how it moulds the people through the community vibes evoked by that particular place. My subject – James – has a close tie to Byron Bay, which was a key place in altering the underlying anger issues of him at a young age. As a long-term friend of his, I am rarely made aware of this as he is now a kind and sincere teenager, with this place close to his heart obviously of significant impact.
His voice definitely matches his calm nature, thus I hope to focus on this with little interruption – perhaps for soothing sounds like waves rolling. I am seeking to extract a single, key phrase to emphasise by isolating it and being a stand alone within the piece – backed up with the rest of that story and a story as a result of Byron’s effect on James. The mood I am seeking is a very calm and passive one, yet a mood that shows the changes that have occurred, and a tone suggesting James is thankful for these changes.
