This week I did a shoot that was closely related to a huge issue in my family. My father has struggled with his weight for a long time. My whole family is worried about him. My mom and I had a discussion one night where she ended up saying something about how much weight, minimally, he needed to lose. When I thought to myself about how much weight that actually was, I realized that the amount was equal to my entire person. I told my mom that he is carrying around an entire extra person on top on him on a regular basis.
Thus my inspiration for an advertisement, for class, was born. I found adult male twins, and asked them to perform a simple daily task while one had the other on his back. I thought about stairs, trying their shoe, or even cooking dinner, but settled on them mowing the lawn. I am very pleased with the outcome of this and I can't wait to see how other people react to it outside of school, because it was praised in my class.
