Portrayal of Insanity:
The Making of Misconduct
Ours is a culture of questions. Unfortunately, it is also a culture
of quick answers. My answer to all the questions? Misconduct. This
presentation is about a video story of a boy posthumously diagnosed
with Conduct Disorder that I created in Dr. Tafler's Video Production
course. Using the genre of a psychological mystery/drama, I tried
my best to show that just because we have an answer doesn't mean
it's the 'right' one, assuming that a right answer even exists.
I will discuss my process of research, shooting and editing to convey
an emotional viewpoint from a man that our culture has already turned
its back on. After explaining my artistic and mental exploration,
I will show selected excerpts of my film.
