For my explorations project I wanted to learn about the filming process, with a focus on editing and adding visual effects in Adobe After Effects. I worked on many different skills during this short project, some of which were costume design, sewing, set design, lighting, videography, time managment, and editing. I wanted to create a video without narration that had music accompanying it in order to enhance its emotional resonance and theme. The concept I was looking to visualize was bored teenage witch girls living in the suburbs. I think that female energy and beauty is very powerful, and almost magical (like a witch), so I wanted to show this nonchalantly through bored teenagers. I also notice a frenzied boredom in the suburbs, especially among women, as women have been somewhat trapped in the white-pickett fence setting in the past century, often discontent with growing up to be mothers and housewives while containing so much unwielded potential. The creepiness of neighborhoods with identical houses and very little commmunity/culture was a final feeling I wanted to communicate, and I attempted to do this through the music and certain creepier scenes.
