We Graduated, But...
A coming-of-age millennial GIF scrapbook.
skills: video, logo, tumblr
We Graduated, But... is a collaborative GIF project with Kate MacDonnell that documents the year we graduated from college, wore exclusively red heart sunglasses while road tripping in our car Lolita, and had existential crises on the regular.
We shot all the GIFs on the cheapest tripod Target sells, cut & edited the GIFs, and built a tumblr to host them.
Q: What’s with the name of this project?
A: The name references the 1932 Japanese silent film, “I Was Born, But…” by Yasujirō Ozu in which a couple of kids have to grow up suddenly and are distracted from their resolve by yummy breakfast. It felt appropriate. Also, we just graduated from liberal arts land, okay?
