Gina is the writer/producer for the forthcoming Spaces Between Time film. I posted a scene element (as I call it) here on VIMEO
This scene is meant to create a mystery that's linked to a scene from "Outskirts of Infinity"
Although this screen shot is darker than it will appear in the film, it is the look I settled on in the segment, in order to bring Gina to the center of attention and minimize the less interesting elements in the wide angle shot.
In addition, I wanted to add a psycho-social element to the look of the scene. I wanted to convey, in effect, that she's talking to herself. The students appear marginalized by the blurring-effect, suggesting marginalization and eventual disassociation. This isolation is also evident in the imagery of the school in the short.
