BRIEF

Design a sequence that tells a narrative for a journey with a beginning and an end.

CONCEPT

“Being Asian, especially from an immigrant Asian family, there’s a cultural idea that if you have a mental illness, you’re kind of like a person in the family that needs to be hidden away.”

This a journey of oneself facing their fears in order to welcome peace and self-efficacy. 

In the beginning the character is fearful of the demons that is contained in the "pandora box" - a metaphor for the cultural stigma for mental health. The character's fear of their demons magnifies their experience but in the end, they realizes what they really needs to do is to embrace themselves.
