share your video selfie!
Want to be part of the My So-Called Selfish Life project? Since we can't be everywhere with our camera, we're inviting everyone to share your stories about not having children (all genders welcome). The #selfishselfies we collect may be used as part of our upcoming documentary and/or our online story-sharing project.
1. Film a 60 second video of yourself on your phone in *horizontal* format. Get shooting tips below for the best submissions.
2. Introduce yourself (location, age, job, background, whatever you want to share).
3. Tell us about your experience of not having kids, by choice or circumstance. See our suggestions below if you want inspiration.
4. Fill out and submit the submission form. If more than one person appears in the video, each person must fill out their own submission form.
5. Upload your video at the link below!
• use the horizontal orientation
• Keep it fun and casual
• Make sure there is enough light on your face
• make sure it's in focus
• Look directly at the camera
• How you knew didn't want to have children, or made peace with not having them
• Seeking or getting permanent sterilization
• How others reacted to your decision and how you responded
• How your cultural/ethnic background affects your decision
Fill out and submit this form and then upload your video to our private folder. Trixie Films will use the information you provide only for the purposes of this project and to keep you updated on our work.
