This is a "video essay" I did for applying to Chapman University in California. I've been rejected once already and this is my last go at it.
Create a self-introductory video no more than two minutes in length. Your video should visually highlight something about yourself, your personality, your interests, etc. that is not related to film. The only rule is that you may NOT appear in the video in any way (including any photographs of yourself), so be creative. Videos can be as simple or complex as you like but should have a clear story. You do not have to edit this project; it can be one long shot. Video essays can be live action or a slide show of still images or photographs with text and phrases, or a combination. We are primarily looking for your strengths
at conveying a story visually and for evidence of your creativity rather than your technical abilities.
