Essay: Symbolism


I've spent a few days laying low, letting this all sink in. I'm trying not to talk too much about the film yet, i was actually going to add sound effects during key moments in it but decided not to because i want people to figure out the story and develop the emotion themselves. But there is one thing I wanted to discuss. You'll notice there are two shots of the back of my neck that I'm touching, a fresh wound and a healed scar. That wound was makeup but the scar is real from a surgery i had in the 8th grade .. and its what inspired a lot of the story for the visual part of the film. Its funny because I'm blind to my scar - its on MY body and yet I'm the only one who can't see it, everyone else can. I can't even really see it standing between two mirrors. So I thought that was interesting and inspiring connection to mental illness and not being able to fully see the problem. you know its there, but you don't want to admit it and the powers that be want to dig deep and get a piece of me. I merged my two ailments together for a sci-fi vision on this topic. Anyway, Ive let it sink in the last few days but now going to promote this again incase theres anyone who hasn't seen my posts. The response so far to it has been incredibly overwhelming and makes this all so worth it and satisfactory. I'm excited to see how the response progresses from here as I hope to reach a larger audience with it beyond my friends/family. The responses have definitely motivated me to start prepping for my next projects! Thanks guys so much for your interest and support!
