I did a piece by Doug Aikten called Autumn. Its about 3 different people who are living their everyday lives. This was for a commercial project that Doug did but he made it non-linear so that their storylines throughout the video go back and forth. The idea was to re-create a piece or put a twist on it and still have some connecting themes to the original piece. I kept similar elements such as the title, non-linear storyline, and I took different shots and angles that Doug did. I chose this project because, I liked the non-linear fashion storyline and the shots.

This work was a ReDoIt project and I did mine on Paul Chans Drawings and Lights. The work showed chaos and political events that go on in everyday life. My work was about family chaos and arguments that many see throughout their life. People grow and grow old with someone else. They then have another someone and that is when a family is created, but then families break apart and people die off as seen in my production.

This project was a recreation of an original project from Sadie Benning called Living Inside. This connected with me tremendously because of the pressures of life that I go through everyday are the same that this artist also goes through. it is hard being apart of the lgbtq and dealing with these everyday stigmas. When recreating it took a lot of time to get the perfect lighting and angles. The editing process took forever to do but, I enjoyed doing the editing process making it seem like a vhs tape as well.

For this ReDoIt project, I was required to shoot my own still videos which I had not done before, and then put them all in the same frame, side by side. We are to choose an artist who shows something intriguing to us, pick a video, and then attempt to recreate it either exactly or with some variations. The variations thatI decided to display was to shoot in color instead of black and white. I also chose the word chicken which is something I love to eat instead of a word that I do not like, like what the original artist had chosen.
