This is my second major film project from Ohio State. We were required to pick a piece of artwork and create a short movie based off of what inspired us.
I chose a piece of artwork of a Krump dancer in open space. There is no title or artist; however, this work has inspired me for years now. For me, it represents the freedom of giving yourself up to the Lord.
I used the artwork to create Faceless, a short film based off of the masks that individuals wear when they are interacting with others in society.
We rarely, if ever, show our entire selves when we are living amidst society. More so, we put on different masks to show portions of ourselves depending on our situation. This film explores the pressure that builds upon us as we put on these masks in order to be accepted and meet expectations in society; and then, the breath of freedom that comes with escaping society and allowing our true selves to be expressed without restraint.
I hope you enjoy and take something away from the piece. Blessings.
