Abstract/Artist Statement

This filmed was inspired by my childhood and the issues of bullying. Up until a certain point in my childhood, my parents told me I was the most social kid in my preschool and daycare. Things changed when I moved on to middle school and experienced bullying for the first time. I remember losing all my friends and feeling alone for the first time. I remember hiding and crying in my bathroom thinking to myself, how I don’t want to live anymore. Life got better and I adjusted, but as I moved on to high school, I experienced it yet again. I was reminded of that sadness and loneliness. I found comfort in my school’s badminton team and slowly grew out of my bubble. With my skills, I took up leadership positions on my team and in clubs. In this film, I am trying to get the point across that you are never alone and there is always someone in this world that loves you. Combined into a thriller, I hope to entertain the audience while assuring that you are never alone.
