Meat Eater’s Dilemma
The skit illustrates the way people try to change themselves in order to fit in with their peers or romantic interests by using a unique and humorous situation. As a person who likes both a burger and a cute guy, this piece was really reflective of that dilemma.
This is idea came from my mom and I first figuring out which tofu to buy. I then pitched the idea to my mentor, Kady, and started writing and planning it scene by scene. Then, with her help, I shot and directed it at Girls Write Now. Finally, to edit and polish it we used YouTube’s video creator. The process of creating this piece was a new experience for me because I had never gone through the process of making a video before.
