“Confessions Exposed” was a project I had been thinking about doing ever since I have seen Gillian Wearing’s Confession video. I could say that her videos were the biggest influence that inspired this film, but I was also influenced a lot by horror movies and how usually when there is a shower scene you can see the persons silhouette from behind the shower curtain so I kind of wanted to give it that horror film kind of look, and wanted it to look very dark (of course there was no serial killer involved..). One of the big ideas of this film and quite possibly the main idea was to compare and contrast how adults now lived high school life or their younger years compared to one student who is currently living the high school experience, so I used myself (mostly out of lack of people), and two family members. I wanted the whole video to be dark, to represent how people feel while they are confessing (religious or not), and have the absolute end be in color to show the feeling after you confess something you’ve bottled up for so long.. but I kind of thought it was very boring just in black and white so I added a few additional things such as music, stock photos and all that good stuff (even though some might find it obnoxious). I really had no experience with video making or editing at all until I made this piece, and I have to say that even though I am a newbie at this, I really do want to continue with this and I will look in to investing in a camera, software, etc… and if I do continue with this my work will certainly improve, but I can’t say that I know what type of works I’ll be doing since I plan for it to be varied and possibly some personal stuff. I have many other things in store and I plan on getting those filmed and made just a teensy bit more popular pretty soon!
