I Have OCD. This Is What It’s Like to Be in My Mind – Angelica Catalano


I enjoyed this video as its from a first person perspective, which is not only hard to film, but hard to portray what you really want without becoming nervous/side-tracked. We know the video is filmed on a camera from the opening credits, which suggests the person is experienced in creating videos and cares about the quality of the video.

The viewer is allowed to really connect with the emotions of the creator through the techniques used. The filming being sped up, in sync with the audio in terms off video and speed, the viewer adapts to the mental state of the person. The lower focus on steady movement, allowing the camera to move naturally with the body makes it seem more human like.

Not being told who the person is until the end allows the viewer to concentrate on the emotional values being shown instead of who the person is. The change in pace and frames keeps the viewer engaged until the end, and only 3minutes long it is informative without getting boring.
