Beyond The Lens

Beyond the lens is a self reflection. It shows that not everyone is as they may seem. It is a contrasting video with various physiological thoughts overlapping. The video starts with me doing a self-tape audition. The monologue is a very social character, the complete opposite of who I am. The audio of the monologue continues, with me being myself, doing my casual introverted activities. This is contrasting the highly extroverted monologue that I mostly audition for.
Through this clip, I hope to show that everyone isn't as they seem, and it's okay to be reserved, and an introvert. The voices overlapping the video signify my inner-thoughts, opinions, and critiques!
