I had the idea for this concept at a time when the University didn’t have the money to pay for it. Because of the sheer quantity of students and producing, I started initially tacking these shots onto other existing shoots. In the end, administration decided they wanted to package this project for graduation. This project broke many University social media records and had over 90k views 48 hours after posting and has almost 1,000 shares to date. This project is a great example of how I’m willing to fight and work for a project I believe in.
One student even created a parody of the video with music from the film, “It Follows.”
