A Bit Deadly

Project Statement:

This project explores the Seven Deadly Sins according to Roman Catholic theology. These are anger, pride, greed, envy, gluttony, sloth, and lust. This project visually humanizes these sins using models, props, and experimental lighting. I chose this concept after watching a Showtime TV series by the filmmaker Morgan Spurlock called ‘7 Deadly sins’. 

 

The series features portraits of each element personified. Colored gels were be used for lighting in a bid to create mood and prompt specific emotions, and I had full control of makeup, hair, costume, and set design.
