My Thesis Film

My senior year of college I set out to make a thesis film that reflected my sensibilities and personal aesthetic. Fruition is an experimental short film in which a young woman experiences and perceives abrupt changes in her existence. It’s about the journey of life, which is particularly turbulent between adolescence and adulthood. Fruition screened at I Dream in Widescreen on May 11, 2013 at The Fox Theatre in downtown Tucson, AZ. At the screening it received honorable mention for cinematography, which was done artfully by Santiago Bahti. It has been almost a year since I completed my thesis project and it still boggles my mind just how much work goes into a six minute short film.

Just as pretty as the Chanel designs in this video is the music, in particular, Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé suite 2. (FUN FACT) I adored the song so much that after I found this video I discovered a symphony in Scotland that was willing to let me use their performance of Daphnis et Chloé in my thesis project. Anyways, watch and enjoy. And in an ultra nerdy girl moment, see if you can spot Cara Delevingne on the runway.
