Final cut

“Lone Star” is a film opening meant to bring awareness of the judgmental way of thinking regarding the LGBT community, especially teenagers, and the problems they are facing. It is a story about the relationship of two teenage girls which the main character’s mother doesn’t approve.

This film opening shows the protagonist’s grief while remembering happy moments of her and her lover. There is a visible contrast between the flashbacks and the shots in which she is sad, given by the warmer and colder colours respectively.

The shots under the neon lights are “trespassed” by horizontal lines intentionally. This is because we wanted to express the fact that those memories are blurry and disturbing for the main character – memories she wants to forget.
