Say The Word by AlyxRae
Song: Process of Illumination by Dan Franklin
“The story Coran had dreamed up went a little something like this:
A young man is standing at a cross road in his life. He’s struggling with what the world thinks he should be.
His parents want his to go to college,
the girl in his class wants him to be straight,
his friends want him to be cool.
The young man is torn between wanting to please everyone and being himself. There’s a lot of angsty shots of Keith in the bedroom; staring that the trophies and photos that are supposed to mean something to him. Lots of him looking into the camera and trying to convey something to the audience.
Line’s from the song kept popping out at him.
Scribbling self-portraits on the mirror in the dark.
Funny when you don’t know who you are.
Coran kept giving him emotions to act out. Sorrow, fear, desperation, uncertainty. All things that were pretty ease to express, having been an angsty teen himself. Thank god he grew out of that phase.”
