I tried to make this "story" unexpected. For my first few shots I took footage of different views of my actor looking nervous...tapping feet, nervous hand movements, etc...this was to show his emotion and demonstrate the anxiety/nervousness to the viewers. The next shot was of another male rubbing his shoulders like he's 'pumping' up a friend to do something big. This shot along with the caption or title makes you assume that his anxiety is due to some interaction that he is about to have with a girl. The image of him reaching his hand up as he is on one knee further induces the idea that he is proposing or asking something serious from a woman. Then the last few seconds reveal a whole different perspective that changes the whole story. It's meant to be humorous and show that images can make you think a certain way based on the view, the angle, the action, etc...and then the next image could reveal a bigger image or change the perspective completely. It's interesting how you can tell a story in six quick images or frames, and how quickly that story can change from one image/frame to the next.
I saw a tiny, nearly shriveled tangerine in our kitchen and it mad me sad. I began seeing it as an emo tangerine and then I wondered what would make a healthy tangerine shrivel up into and emo one.
I took over one hundred pictures and made a mini stop-motion video out of it but it was way too long so I decided to just choose the six pictures that could tell the story. I don't have a great camera or even basic editing skills, but I think you can get the picture,
