I’m taking a class called 30-60-90 Identity & the Moving Image. It encompasses a lot of big ideas about gender, representation and politics, solidifying the knowledge attained with practical exercises in 30, 60 and 90 second formats.
Our first assignment, Derive, is a self-portrait with no other limitations other than 30 seconds. I had a lot of big ideas, but a $0 budget and very little time. Due to all these restraints, my conclusion was to cut to the basics.
I am soothed by trees and water. I live in the light. My life is musical and that music is created with love by us. I took a very direct approach to the assignment, but considering I have little to no skills in the realm of video, I’m proud of the outcome.
Lemme know what you think! Have you made any video self portraits. How would you define yourself in such a short amount of time? Follow Wrays of Sunshine on Youtube for more videos! There’s a trip to Sunshiny Florida and a music video for To the Death.
