|dc.description.abstract||Societies/individuals create their own reality through a specific space they occupy at a
certain time.The concept of reality implies an interspace between person and context
This could be described as hybrid that is, the mixing or intermingling of different
contexts.This study has therefore interrogated the influence of visual effects and how
they enhance the formation and transformation of the performer(s) identity as far as the
object and the target audience is concerned.
The research has employed qualitative research methods including interviews (group
and in-depth personal interviews) and intense library research.The research has noted
that the voice of the child is an effective tool in presenting ideas in the Kayole One
films.Again, film production and audience reception are inextricably linked in the
process of determining ideas around the (in) visibility of cultural representations.
The research has noted that a character on stage forms and transforms through visual
effects and that these effects in turn enhance the realization of a film’s aesthetic appeal
especially when performed by children.The research also notes that there is a great
disparity in terms of reception and perception between children and adult
audiences.Therefore, audience reception and perception are crucial for evaluating the
transformation process in the film.Also, visual effects, with the inclusion of visual
techniques are what make a film different from other literary genres like the novel,
plays, and poetry and such effects enhance the aesthetic value of film.
The research has concluded that a perfomer’s identity,through role play, is in continous
transformation within the same film and from one film to another.This change in
personality, otherwise defined as identity transformation, is greatly enhanced by the
magical fantasies and technical infusions which are termed as visual effects.||en_US
