Selfie Project for my Experimental Animation class.
It started off as just a literal interpretation of self (head, eyes, nose, mouth), but as I got to body I thought about the insecurity of my weight and how it only really exists because other people make me insecure. I then decided to branch out to my other insecurities which are my art and my depression.
This video doesn't exactly mean my insecurities define my idea of self, but they are definitely apart of my identity. People aren't very fond of sharing their insecurities, which is perfectly understandable, but I personally don't want to ever have to hide my insecurities. So the creation of this animation is a way for me to share my insecurities and also let the world know insecurities are okay.
Though as I type this I know my heart was beating intensely when my class watched it haha.
