A music video I star in, “Needs” by Odonis Odonis, is getting quite a bit of attention! In fact, it’s a staff pick on Vimeo!!
What I am most excited about is the completely different way I am being portrayed here. Normally in my career as an actress/model, I am portrayed as “beautiful”, “sexy”, “strong”. These are all things that I identify with in my day to day life, but can sometimes be a daunting standard to live up to.
However, this video took the same tools used to highlight my image (lighting, wardrobe, filters , angles) and flipped them, to make me look “strange” “weird” “alien” and truthfully, a bit “ugly”. It was refreshing – it allowed me to explore a new side of my psyche – and it suits the whole look of this strange, tense and uncomfortable dystopian world that director, Scott Cudmore has created.
Just goes to show you – Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and perception is so powerful. The way you choose to look at things determines the shape of your world.
