“Bulimic life” was a project created for one of my modules at university. Using 16mm scratch film I was able to create an abstract piece that tells a story of the life of a person with bulimia. The project was influenced by a friend’s fight with the desease. From the start of their life, through, commonly, the media influence that drives the individual to depreciate itself and given in to the terrible disease. The end of the video represents the terrible repetition of the events associated with the condition and the despair that eventually leads to an end of a life.
The soundtrack, sound effects, animation and photographs used are all originally recorder, mixed and produces for the purposes of the project.
