“Paths/Sentieri” is part of the project “Of hunting and nature”, a documentary about nature, wildlife and hunting within the twelve months of the year and the four seasons.
The project, started by the photographer Andrea Boscardin in 2014, is still work in progress, and involves not only photography but also water-colours, objects (finds), texts, maps, illustrations, drawings, videos and taxidermy.
The project it’s mainly about mapping this journey and it’s inspired by a existing diary. The original diary was made by the photographer during the first two years of researches “on the ground” (2014/2016) though the Italian’s woods of the Apennine Mountains (Liguria and Tuscany).
During this time the author decided to write a diary as a report.
So, after each excursion he started to draw the maps of the paths walked, adding notes, data and informations about flora and fauna.
Turning the pages of the book we discover little by little this secret, silent and the wild world, like we were hunters, naturalists, photographers or just human beings, looking for traces, signs and little beautiful discoveries.

a. What program was used to create the multimedia?
Final Cut Pro.
b. How and why did you choose that sound/music?
Music is very important but sometimes it’s very difficult to find the right balance between images and sound. I think this happens also because music is the only part of a multimedia which most of the times is not composed by the author but created by another artist.
This time I mainly tried to focus the attention on the images, I don’t know if I reached the goal; what I know is that for the future I will try to work on the sound design as well.
c. Tell us about the editing process when you think of a multimedia.
In this case I mainly followed the editing of the book.
