My Senior Thesis film created at Lesley University: Art + Design
Human beings have always worked in tribes since the prehistoric era. Men and women would team up together for a common goal: survive. This behavior is hardwired in our brains and we learn what type of people we associate ourselves with. We experience it first-hand when we grow up from young children to young adults through public / private school. However, some folks, even through those years,still don’t know who or what they belong to.
PAD is about a high school student’s inner conflict of not belonging to a group of friends. Attempting to join school activities only backfire at each and every turn. In the end, our protagonist learns that he shouldn’t try to be someone that he is not, and, in the end, finds another that relates to him.
