Discovery Settings

A data meshing of instructional videos and found footage, this performative documentary explores new age relationships and their precursors, why there's no one around me, and where my disconnections lye.  This project started as an investigation into societal pressures for a documentary class at my university, Virginia Tech. Created by utilizing the concept of finding love and the need for connection, I choose to highlight my own journey and commentary.  Edited in Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro. This film has been officially selected into two festivals and screened at:


Portland, OR on Oct. 11th 2019,

along with New Orleans, LA from Oct. 16th - 23rd 2019 Cinema Reset portion of
