Tinkerbell is a personal video that traces my own stream of consciousness to unravel ideas surrounding my sexual discovery. It combines found footage, super 8 family footage, and videos taken from my iPhone, along with a loose narrative that aims to poetically link the video segments. The soundtrack is a juxtaposition of Willies Nelsons, “Time of the Preacher “ and The Germs, “Manimal”. Both use the word panther and I interchange the two to highlight and contrast the wide spectrum of man. It ends with Frank Sinatra's “Thats life” (a nod to my previous video with my nana,) to bluntly sum everything up with a dog looking out the window; suggesting and linking back to the beginning that he is the one who notices me skipping - and perhaps we are all just as helpless.
