This is the final video I made based around the mirror mask. I mixed the photographs with quotes from various articles I read during my research. The aesthetics is almost lifted from Facebook’s A look back videos, although with different music, font, and colour. The title is a word pun that has followed me for several years and that I think perfectly captures the tension between social media and loneliness.
While I enjoy the final product, I really disliked the unguided and frustrating progress to get there. I really should have done more reflections and discussed my ideas earlier to get the feedback I needed. I also tinkered around too much with Adobe Premier, resulting in bad resolution and irritating black bars. Oh well, I will keep that in mind when I start working on my final year projects!
