"ANA", an anorexia video.


Please watch the video at 720p, it doesn't even seem to be synced properly at any other viewing setting. I had a lot of technical issues..

I made this "photo essay" for an assignment, and I chose the topic of anorexia. I've never had my own experience with anorexia (more like the opposite), but I've had my own personal beauty issues which I think affected me in a similar way. Majority of the video was photographed by me. Some shots were taken with the help of friends, and a few other photos (the clips in the television) were taken from the internet. I feel like the media's influence is a big part of anorexia, so I used actual media photos that I found - I couldn't have replicated it to get the same effect.

Regardless, I'm happy with some parts of my video and I can't wait to start shooting/editing some real video footage in the future.

This is so good. Perfect song too. I really like the mirror scene and the shriveling apple at the end.
