For my project space, I made a film where I combined some of the animations I’d made previously with some tracks from my album and footage of me playing guitar. I layered all of these elements together to create what felt like a finished piece.

This film is about the concept of the inside and inner self calling to be heard and what it means to feel aligned as a trans person (outside aligning with inside). There’s a sense of restlessness to the film which represents to long and difficult wait to transition. As the film goes on we get a sense of ease and relief after the character shows top surgery scars and feels content with themselves. At the end, it cuts to a close up of my face, showing what’s on the outside. The people in the project space saw exactly what I was trying to get across.

I’d like to try out multiple ways of displaying this work.
