“Germs (2013) is a 3-minute green-screen video, which follows a glamorous female protagonist through a series of advertising tropes. Moving from a perfume to a bathroom cleaner commercial, she converses with a persuasive masked woman and becomes increasingly paranoid about the omnipresence of microscopic germs. Rachel plays every character in the piece.”

From our art lecture, a video which stood out to me was Germs. It stood out because I felt like it was more relevant to the type of art film my group was making which was a bit more cinematic than the other videos shown. I found the style and concept of the video really intriguing – especially how the point of the film seems to come across through weirdly dark humour.
