During spring break I decided to go a different direction
Over break, I was thinking about my video and I thought visually it was a bit boring. So I decided to throw away my previous footage and start again. Luckily, I was not far along in the filming process so I was able to restart without problems. Over break, I created a mood board. I was inspired by a lot of images I found on Tumblr. However, my main source of inspiration was a converse ad, it featured a lot of young actors and musicians; it was cool, I liked it, and it made me feel some type of way. My mood board consists of a lot of colorful images; the color mainly coming from sources of light. My mood board contains a lot of photos by Petra Collins; her photos have a very dreamy quality that I wanted to replicate.
I was able to interview Heather and I’m really happy with how it came out. I felt that the conversation was very genuine. I’ve been wanting to interview Heather because her perspective is unique and is one that is not often heard. I never really hear about what it’s like for an Asian American to deal with societal beauty standards and its effects on them.
