This is my video for my "Self-Portrait" project for my Video 1 class at CCAD. :D Here it is me! Enjoy!
In this video I set out to explore myself, who I was, and what aspects of myself (traits, interests, hobbies, etc.), my surroundings, my background (who I am in general, my family, things from my personal life etc.); I set out to best capture and portray what and who I am as a person.
I set out to paint...well a portrait of sorts...of me.
I wanted something that was fun and carefree, and so for a majority of the video I told my story via props such as toys...but I also wanted to use them in a way that would perhaps subtly tell a little something about my life.
Art being something that has always been a source of joy and pleasure for me even since childhood-hence the "Etch A Sketch". There are of course always instances of conflict in ones own life...and whether it be Toy Soldiers in battle or an only child vs. themselves, parent's divorce battling "Rock Em Sock Em Robots"...
Each part of this project I wanted to express something about me...embody a little part of me...and explore hopefully in what is a different/creative thought provoking way.
Here's what I got.
