Metamorphosis

"What defines us is how we rise after we fall." -Zig Ziglar

'Metamorphosis,' 2016 was a short film I made for my final semester at University. The driving
force behind my project was the mindset that people diagnosed with Type One Diabetes,
like myself, can begin to believe that their life goals are unreachable due to their chronic
disease. They find themselves in a dark place with restriction set upon them.  

My film aims to inspire anyone with T1D or without to believe they can accomplish whatever
they set their mind and hearts to. Nothing comes easy but nothing is unreachable. The fight
is worth it in the end. It's a short film of struggle and defiance through the use of dance movement.
