      Hi Michelle! Do you think you could do a video with the writers explaining their thought process and intentions for the film? I would really love to understand the deeper meaning that they were getting at. 🙂 You guys did a great job btw!

      Hi michelle! Ive already told you this and I hope you've read it, but i think this is beautiful. The thought if what the bulldog represents in this amazing and creative short film has been on my mind for days. This is amazing! Keep it up, love you❤️

    Was it weird having a guy kiss you constantly on the neck with your boyfriend right in front of you?

    I love seeing behind the scenes for films since my friend and I make videos sometimes. I kinda laughed at the "we get to sleep after this" part though because I'm the editor. Once the filming is done that means being awake at 2am to make sure the editing is done before our deadline kek

    Maybe the meaning of the movie is up for interpretation and that’s why she doesn’t want to explain it, it’s like an artist explaining their art, it loses meaning after.

    I feel like the film is about feeling like an outcast and wanting to fit in to the mainstream, then realizing your originality is better. There was a lot of fanfare leading up to the band/cheerleaders showing Bulldog, and Val and her bf were all alone, and Val wasn't wearing spirit colors in the beginning. So she's in love with this idea of fitting in, being normal, the quintessential high school experience. Then she gets something she's so emotionally invested in (the bedroom scene), then realizes it's not that great and she can be herself without molding into what she thinks a stereotypical high school experience should be (the locker room and pep rally scenes). Also, Michelle's whole channel is about not fitting in (no superheroes that looked like her) so you have to embrace your uniqueness and know you can forge your own path.

    alright theory, when you fall in love with the most popular guy in school you’re like omg this is gonna be so great he’s so cute wow and handsome and smart and everything and then you actually spend some alone time and learn about the dark past and his sadness and what makes him,him. By being with him, you are taking time away from him being the star of the football team, or the lead trombonist in the jazz band or so on so forth. She leaves him because although she loves him she knows it’s better for him to go. Just like when couples break up after highschool because they know they need some time in college to focus on learning and growth and spending time with that S/o the entire time would take away parts of both persons life. Idk man it’s 12:01 and I’m trying to sleep but I had to type this out for my sanity.

  • Ariel King
    Ariel King 6 months ago +18

    Not a fan of movies that are just arty for the sake of being arty, from the opening music being ambiguous "religious chanting" that has zero meaning other than to be quirky, to the long shots that are meant to tell us "this scene meeaaans something" this just feels like it's taking techniques from popular arty films and directors and just putting it to a quirky open-for-interpretation plot-line with no real meat to it. I think it takes a lot more courage to make a short film that isn't set in complete surreality, it feels like this style is a copout?

  • Darby Nash
    Darby Nash 6 months ago

    Michelle, the comments are overwhelmingly demanding an explanation, but I love how you all brought Bulldog to life. There are so many possible interpretations that are up to the viewer and you all make it feel real. I can’t believe that I felt American Beauty vibes watching the film, and now see that you were inspired by it. Bravo!!

  • sweetaman1993

    I know this is a short film but it seems like you have a beginning and an end but completely skipped the middle.
    How is anyone supposed to see bulldog coming to life as anything other than weird when you gave literally zero time for us to get emotionally invested in him as a character?
    You had sex with a costume and it came to life for two seconds and...that's it? What lol? Michelle you can do so much better than this.
    Reading through the comments I thought maybe bulldog comes to life as a real person who's in love with you and popular in school but ultimately has to leave to make everyone happy again

    If so many people think that the movie is great and meaningful why nobody explains to us who don't understand what the movie is about?

    • Madison
      Madison 6 months ago +49

      From my interpretation, it's about falling in love with the idea of high school. She breaks up with her boyfriend because she wants to focus on school, she throws herself into school, and then she realizes that there's more to life than high school.She says "I can't stay" when she realizes that high school is like a relationship that has it's own time and place, but she's meant to move on and do better things. The quote "Bulldog, you're not mine to take" shows that she's accepted that high school is a shared experience rather than her entire livelihood. I don't know if that's what she intended though, since it's very ambiguous. It's ultimately up to your interpretation!

    • Arelenaa B
      Arelenaa B 6 months ago +8

      Thats why I'm asking if someone wants to share their view on this, because I can't relate to it, and I can't imagine in which way anyone can. Just curious, because it confuses me a lot

    • Becky

      Because as it is most often with art, there is no single meaning. It all comes down to personal interpretation
