What started off as a mere thought became a project. After reading dozens of pages, meeting with many professors, and asking myself, "Can you really do this?" it is done.
Below is the finals for BIDS 390 "The Video Essay" and I am so proud to share it with you. This video essay is the first video essay I have done completely alone and fully revised. Not only did I analyze the star image of Ariana Grande, but I also formed the basis for my independent study "The Pop Star."
This video essay was a complete joy to make, despite all the hard work behind it. I got to flex my media muscles and prove that my skills were not limited to paper. Video essays are an amazing new form of analysis that I invite you to try, and of course I am always open to help!
