The silent short, “Parallel”, was created using brief clips of video from a narrative along with quick cuts to seemingly unrelated video. It is not immediately evident that in this film, parallels are made between the narrative and the intermixed footage. I related certain aspects of the storyline, like the bike wheel, to an object, like the record player. Both of these items spin in a circular motion, therefore creating a sort of reflection of each other. I built these relationships between many aspects of the simple storyline and everyday things I may encounter.
