The story of Ophelia in Hamlet and the painting of her by Sir John Everett Millais moves me deeply because of the beauty combined with sadness. The dead and broken leaves around the girl in the video is to give the impression of the river where Ophelia fell into while picking flowers. The book said that she slowly drowned, singing all the while and I imagined what she would have sung about and sang my version of it thinking of her sad short life. I portrayed the young girl’s death using beautiful images but with a sad and chilling undertone.
