Copycat, a short film I made in fall of 2012 for Film 171F: Autobiographical Film Workshop.
The assignment was to make a film about ourselves without showing ourselves. I chose to try to convey something about myself by looking at various elements of my identity and trying to trace the pieces of my personality back to their respectives sources. (My mom, my dad, my friends, the Tumblr community.)
After I had isolated and analyzed major elements of my identity, I used a combination of split screens and semi-opaque overlays to blend the images back together again in a way that felt cohesive and gave an overall impression of my personality.
