“The Rings” Act I

These are pictures from my Senior Show, Act I of “The Rings”: A Cinematic Storytelling by Sierra Bennett

I remember how much effort it took to make these, how much time and how I was taking like 6 classes along with doing my senior show. I also had a job waitressing. I don’t know how I did it. Probably the drive to make something I truly believed in. Something I made. I was influenced by Cindy Sherman’s classic ” Untitled Film Stills” and her use of Noir settings (look it up kids- I mean it!). I think she is amazing and was really drawn to her in Art History. She was a woman after my own heart. Doing her makeup, costumes and putting together a miniature story.

I love storytelling, it’s an art form that is unto itself. I realized I wanted to make sense of a story instead of just random film stills. I felt as though I was telling a story I could still leave the audience guessing.
