For my six word story, I decided to use "There Will Never Be Enough Color". The reason I decided to work with this specific and original concept was because of the many ways the audience could perceive it. One way they could go about understanding my story is related to art. Another way is through race, identities, and cultural differences. However, my six word story does not have one set meaning. The reason I did this was to let the viewer interpret my story any way that seems fit for their experiences, beliefs, and/or emotions. In my video, a boy is airbrushing a diamond, and all the shots are in chronological order. In the end, he rumbles up his work to symbolize the idea of it "not being good enough" or, "not enough color". He throws it in the trash where it sits with hundreds of similar crumbled pieces of paper. I loved this project and I really like the idea and thought behind my six word story.
The idea of a six word story is to showcase the ability to tell a story in just six words, A famous one written by Ernest Hemingway is: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
A few of my favorites are...
"You're not a good artist, Adolf."
"A son abused. Another son abused."
"The paper killed my pet rock."
"I've made all the best mistakes."
"Just you and me. And her."
"Focus was good. Bokeh was better."
