This film is about a young man who has a mother that suffers from Schizophrenia. This film is not a documentary, but it does show acted out events from the directors real life dealing with his mother’s illness. The director is a film student and a tutorial video expert on youtube. I sometimes watch and learn from his videos. Judging from his bright and happy personality you would never guess he was dealing with so much at home. He takes care of his mother and supports them both while going to film school. It is an honor for me to review this film, his story is so inspiring.
The intro to the movie speaks volumes. His mother is yelling out weird noises all alone underneath a dark bridge or sewer entrance (who knows what it is?). I felt the loneliness from that scene. Throughout the film he struggles with cleaning up the mess his mom makes everywhere she goes. whether it’s destroying the house or attacking people around her. He is responsible for her, and you can see how little help he gets from the rest of us. Most people want to push her away. Some say put her in a home. he struggles with trying to live his life and find time to follow his mother’s every move.
“Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder. The symptoms can be very disabling. 1 in 100 are affected. schizophrenia and other dissociative disorders do not get the Representation they deserve in film and television. This is a true story of severe mental illness and its effect on a family. If you or a family member lives with schizophrenia, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!”
I hope you enjoy these small videos I share on this site. Each one of them helped me fine tune my camera skills so that I can compete with the professionals out there who make the big bucks lol. These quick tutorials will expand your knowledge of camera angles, grid lines, auto focus points and things most people never think about in filmmaking online. It’s not so simple, you have to learn all of these small things to create your own style and master everybody else’s. Every photographer or filmmaker has their own blueprint on how they film, but the basic steps in this video are used by almost everyone. save this video and take notes!!!
