60 Second Flim: A Typical Day in Lockdown


This short 60-second film is about the beginning of the coronavirus and the effect it had on our daily lives. When we had to quarantine for months on end it was very hard for everyone I presume. In this short film, I portrayed a teenager in lock-down and what a regular day was like. The goal of the film was to show how discouraging and BORING those couple of months were and how hard it was for teenagers to get back into regular life. (life is still very different but a lot better than how it was from late March to July)
