One thought on “Day 16 | Jax Deluca

  1. I found this video to be very creepy with the way it was shot. The very jagged movements of the camera and the aged look to the film was visually appealing to me. In scene 1 with the hands being placed on the window I felt as if the person was trapped inside looking for a way out, a way out of self denial.
