About this submission
I graduated college in the summer of 2021. Post-grad life has been making me feel antsy and frustrated. One day while babysitting, I heard Sun Ra's Enlightenment. The upbeat tempo made me think of my friend Mitchka!
I knew I had to cast Mitchka in a short that would be scored to jazz. As a Leo, Mitchka has a very fiery, passionate personality and I was interested in seeing how this would play out if she was caught in a state of boredom. The result is neurotic, much like how I feel about post-grad life so far.
