Live Life

Live Life - student project

A made a short clip that when uploaded to Instagram it would loop. Just a little reminder that even though we can choose to live life to the fullest to the best of our abilities, even during the lockdown.

 

For this video I used green key (twice), created a text expression (wiggle effect) and combined different stocks clips together to create the final video.

CAPTION

Life called me this week to give me a wakeup call. I’ve been so caught up on imagining my future reunions to make up for this ‘lost time’, that I forgot life is passing before my eyes.

Over the past month, I’ve had to accept and learn that the lockdown is my new normal. It’s a hard fact to swallow, especially given that I thrive off of new experiences and human interaction. I’ve had to learn how to be with myself. I’ve had to learn how to embrace my emotions and remind myself that it's ok to be unproductive. I’ve had to learn how to rely on my own energy, although this is still a concept I’m trying to perfect.
For the past weeks, I’ve ‘postponed life’ to fixate on the infinitely better future. But, I don’t want to look back in time when this is all over and think I let life slip away. So, instead, I’ve decided to ‘live life’ to the best of my abilities, despite the circumstances. Two days ago, I left the house for the first time in 30+ days and boy was that thrilling! I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember the last time I was this tan in May! Also, I’m definitely loving substituting previous traffic time with stretching sessions.

It’s easy to have the days blur into one, so learn to embrace the little moments: it’s the little things that make a difference! Hope you’re all hanging in there and that you too hop onto this bandwagon of ‘Living Life’. We will get through this!
