My Life: in 90 seconds or less



Is a music video a reflection of who you are? Maybe a scripted scene? Or a slice of truly unscripted reality? How about a series of images in a slideshow or a collage of moments? Maybe you are an art film. The possibilities are endless!

My Life in 90 Seconds or Less asks you to define yourself and your life. In today’s world, selfies are everywhere; we all are constantly adding to and refining our public persona. This project is an opportunity for self exploration and public discovery- a chance to tell the world what it means to be you.
