This video is a mix of live action and stops motion video which is a representation of my personal experience. In my very young age, there were so many people telling me to do something that can earn big money. The moral values that earning a lot of money is equals to success was just stuck in my mind that I nearly forgot what I really wanted to be, an artist. In most part of the video, a clay doll is representing me and other people that can be moulded by a pair of scissors, which is representing the moral values in the society. However, The clay doll became sad and desperate for change which it was glowing up. In the end, it saw that the so-called “brighter future” will only leaded people to a dead end. At that time, it transformed into a hard doll that cannot be moulded by the pair of scissors anymore, which represent that I will no longer be moulded by the so-called moral values in order to become successful. Because I am NOT CLAY.
