switched at birth

Two girls, switched at birth. This teaser sequence is about feeling out of place, even within the confines of one's own family. We follow a string through this sequence, watching as it slowly ties two girls into scenes in which they clearly don’t belong. Their lives continue, as does the growing notion that something is very wrong, and eventually this secret overwhelms them completely.

This collage-based teaser is based off of Episode 360 from This American Life. The process involved sewing, combining mixed-media and found imagery, lighting/shooting the handmade collage pieces, and digitally compositing the images together.
