A War On Our Own Soil

The video I created embodies the idea’s of the Occupy Wall Street agenda. The main character of my short film wouldn’t fall under only one person. The protagonists are everyone who helped and supported one another during the sit-in. The antagonists would be the Wall Street bankers and workers who were walking by and looking down on the protesters. The film begins revealing the struggles that the protesters had to go through. Then continues into showing some close ups of protesters and what their job was there. Toward the end of the film, I showed a lot of American flags in order to portray a sense of patriotism ¬†within the viewer. I ended the film with a quote in order to keep the reader thinking about the topic after the film is over.
