A huge thank you to all of our friends and family that have supported us for the past 4 years at Ringling, and the past year and a half especially while working on this film. We’re happy to finally share with all of you our graduation film:
Big hugs and smooches to baysalt for helping out with colouring a bunch of scenes! Also to everyone who stopped by the livestreams I did throughout working on this, you guys are the best. *u*
holy cheese this is amazing
5mins later update (I’ve rewatched this like 5 times already): This makes me want to animate. But I can’t. I have to go to bed so I can crash some animation classes tomorrow. And probably animate there.
If you haven’t watched this yet, you really should.
This is a must, girls and boys.
I agree that everyone should watch this. This is one of the few videos on female representation in the media that at least tries to point out that the way females are represented has a negative effect on everyone, not just women.
I love that this`touches also on how media affects men, but wow. Stereotypes are perpetuated by television more than in reality, and they are so skewed because they have to be provocative or funny or any number of things that aren’t complete or real enough.
This affects not only women and men, but race, gays and lesbians, trans people, all people.
We all struggle against what we are supposed to be, what we are told we should be, and yet when positions in media and PR change, the image doesn’t. Because people get those positions by conforming to that image, and breaking out risks loss.
This is why it is so hard for anyone to be who they really are, because they are so busy being what other’s expect so as not to be harassed for not being what they are supposed to be.
Oh man, Geena Davis. I love her with all -y heart.
All my followers should watch this video
Everyone needs to watch this and see how harmful misrepresentation and perpetuating harmful stereotypes are not just to a minority group, but to everyone.
Only by adapting a new way of thinking, by treating everyone equally, and even eroding gender roles, can we influence our peers and perpetuate something good.
