Representation – Amaan

I want a wide array of voices and experiences I did some filming last week of filming Sophia Malatesta and after filming I realized that I did not have a lot of representation in my short film. I only filmed a few interviews so far but I realized that I mainly have a lot of Asian American perspective. I find this incredibly interesting because in mass media the voice of Asian people are usually missing or very underrepresented and I love having this perspective within my film. The perspective of beauty through an Asian American lens is one that I never hear and I believe to be important.  However, I realized that I would like a large variety of voices that are barely heard within media. I decided to interview Cleo later this week and ask her about her experiences as a trans woman. I’m curious to hear about her experiences dealing with the concepts of beauty at Westtown and within the broader community.

I hope to reach out to more women of color and maybe some men


I also found some other videos that I’m grabbing inspiration from. They’re all from I-D magazine. The videos feel intimate and personal and that is something I hope to recreate in my video. Also, the visuals are beautiful.

    It’s great that you’re trying to find people of different identities aside from race. Beauty doesn’t just differ between people’s races
