Passing Time is my response to the common Covid-era question “how are you passing the time?” This short art film combines old and new personal footage to visualize the transformation of my memories over time. For me, looking back on the pre-pandemic past through rose-tinted glasses has been a surreal and dreamlike experience. These memories get hazier as time blurs and reality has become increasingly digitized during lockdown. To convey these ideas, the scenes in this video overlap, fuse together, and/or appear pixelated.
I shot Passing Time on a DSLR and edited it using Final Cut Pro X.
