I created this over my summer abroad living in Spain. I created this project for my Multimedia Content Creation course.
I chose the stylistic approach of making the video have a home movies VCR feel because I wanted to make the video feel nostalgic. The video is a series of interviews with the people of Barcelona that I became friends with. The goal of my video was to try and show how small the world begins to feel when you get out in it, and how so many people from every place congregating in one place for so many different reasons makes the world feel reachable.
I was inspired to create this video because in my childhood and teenage life I always dreamed of moving to Europe, but I grew up with parents that were not travelers and they often made this dream feel very impossible for me. When I took a leap of faith and decided to be an au pair for a host family in Madrid, Spain during the summer of 2019 all of these walls came down. I wanted to document what had brought other people from all over the world to the same beautiful city that I had come to. I hoped to encourage others to get out there and travel.
