My film metaphorically uses a mirror to symbolise reality slowly breaking apart over time and emotions (the water) taking control over life. Splintered Reality is an art film meaning it relies on aesthetic visuals and symbolism for the audience to decipher.
Splintered Reality is CAPTIVATING because there is a variety of film techniques including crossfades, slow motion and time-lapse to create artistically composed visuals synced with the remixed music.
The message I am trying to convey is to not let your dark thoughts destroy your reality which may plummet you into darkness. Instead, turn your broken pessimistic thoughts into bright and optimistic ones. This will repair the broken shards of your “broken life” and might repair them which will help you perceive reality more clearly and transparently.
The song I chose helped build my entire video. I listened to the song repeatedly, added extra effects (speed adjustments and echoes) and after lots of visualisation of what the song looks like, I produced it and interpreted it as symbolic with the mirror.
