As a way of fulfilling my Second Visual and Performing Arts Course core requirement for Fairfield, I am currently enrolled in “Intro Film & Video Production.” Our most recent project was to create a portrait of a person or place and represent either one truthfully. I ultimately chose to film my apartment for the project and I had two of my roommates star in the film.
The decision to film my apartment was to show how all apartments can have tension, especially when you’re living with various types of people. Sometimes the habits or tendencies of others get under your skin and you do not realize that these things exist until you live under the same roof. Nonetheless, there are constructive ways of dealing with tension, but there are also dangerous and unhealthy ways that lead to greater issues. Here is my representation of how all of the little things can become too much to handle.
