For class last semester I had a create a film based on something I found in a “junk” shop. This was honestly one of the most challenging experiences of my life but I found some pretty interesting things in the “junk shop” such as:
These old photos of strangers from as early as 1915. My personal favorite is the three ladies in their Sunday best. I call them “The Three Graces”. But in the end I decided to create a video based on this envelope:
Small and humble the only clues this letter gave was for who it was intended for: Mr. Ed Reddington. I imagined a life for this man. Writing him letters from his secret lady who goes by only J. The video is a visual representation of the time they spent together.
I presented the video like this:
The box contained the 10 letters I wrote so that when viewing the film people could read through the letters and get the entire story.
I even put some stills from the film in a fanfold.
The film has a slight focus on fashion and relationships which I enjoy. Thank you so much Curtis for playing Mr. Ed Reddington and being amazing.
Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
