In this project we spoke to members of the Purdue Fort Wayne community about how they have interacted with and experienced gender, which is a social justice issue close to my heart. The project consisted of four videos released on social media. The first video deals with gender and people's experiences of it. The second deals with Trans Day of Visibility itself. The third interlaces two stories of transitioning, and the final video introuduces us to the trans folk who have appeared in the series.
The production cycle was interrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, which meant that we had less footage than we originally planned to use. This also presented an editing challenge because we couldn't reshoot interviews or do follow-ups fill gaps. So what had been originally planned as one longer, freeflowing video was split into four distinct parts, which we released throughout the month of April.
