First assignment deadline has arrived! Sneak preview of first sequence, edited amidst confusion regarding the brief (shot list, sequencing, editing). It was edited to be as close to the brief as possible. Personally I would’ve done it differently, maybe I’ll re-edit it.

I just really hope the next assignment will be more clear.
