Prompt: The assignment is a final open project.

During this unprecedented time, the reality is a lot to deal with. Adding on to that, I have more time now to rethink about my life, especially about the mistakes I’ve made and moments I should’ve valued. Sometimes I wish I can disappear for a while.

This piece is inspired by my overwhelming emotions. I chose the shower scene because it is when people are the most physically vulnerable, which correlates with the emotional vulnerability theme. I chose orange as the background in order to enhance the feeling of warmth and intimacy.

When animating this piece, I focused on the techniques I learned in composition and video montage. This animation is a demonstration of all the skills I learned in Time.
