Poser's Syndrome


A satirical comedy documentary on narcissistic 21st century young adults.

A poser is 1. one who pretends to be someone whose not.
2. who tries to fit in but with exaggeration.

Any one who does not follow his/her own ideas of what he/she likes. Poser is governed not only by the clothes, music, or makeup, but rather by the state of their mind and the conformity to their beliefs.

I created this video for a school project, but the matter is somewhat close to the heart. This video is not meant to offend anyone, but rather to nudge the people who can see themselves being identified as a poser to actually understand that the world is going to judge no matter what (even after Dan said the Shakespeare quotes, Kayla still somehow judge him) and just be themselves.

Edited with Adobe Premiere Pro, the opening title was done in Adobe After Effects. The whole production took 4 hours to shoot. It took me 28 hours to process the shots and edit them.
