Periods are fraught with unwanted emotions, unpredictable shifts, and sudden hankerings. They also, as a result, make for some good stories.

We shot these videos for the ZOOPPA- Laugh at Periods contest that was linked with the iphone app Sympler that lets you remix videos into a 20 sec final. The challenge was to make stories about emotions or hunger during that time of the month, and then try to work it into a 20 sec understandable and fun story. Initially we came up with 5 ideas and concepts that we shot various pieces of that we made into a few different versions for the final submission.

Shot over the course of 2 days on a Canon c100 and then imported to my iphone for editing and export for the submission. The other trick aside from having to edit in the app and only produce a 20 sec video was that we could only use 6 shots that had to be remixed together in a out of order like fashion- so trying to write a story around that idea without it being a 1-6 through point was also difficult but i think we pulled it off. There are tons of extra footage that i will work on bloopers, bts, and directors cuts depending on the results of the contest submissions.

Months later i went back and re-edited the videos into more of a sketch fashion (above) without the use of the app or the music we were required to use.
