In Times Of Turbulence

One effect of lockdown during the pandemic was a sudden disappearance of many of the ways our lives intersected with new people and places. Almost overnight, our daily movements and interactions became far more limited and repetitive. This absence of intersections sent one Dawson photography student on a quest to find something engaging to do. What he discovered exercised new corners of his mind and body and brought him into contact with new corners of his neighbourhood, all of which helped to lift his mood.

    This short two minute video based on the pandemic and its lockdown were very accurate towards our lifestyle and our health. The black and white colors you put in the video almost seems like during the lockdowns people had a hard time dealing being alone and had no hobbies. It just shows how bland it was staying inside without friends, family or even socializing. People have experienced a low level in their lives causing depression and anxiety. One part of the video that got to me at 1:29 and so on, is how to deal with your symptoms, and how to have hobbies outside of home. You put your mind to something important and forgotten and left out all the negative thoughts coursing through your mind. It was a video worth watching.

    This small video is a perfect example of how the covid-19 lockdown changed how way of life and how we did or learned new things. In the video he shows how his way of living changed completely by eating unhealthy foods and watching Netflix all day. To be honest that is what I did too at the beginning of the lockdown, like all the other people who were stuck at home. The covid-19 lockdown has created ways how to learn new things and how to spend more time with our families. But for some it was harder since we couldn’t see our friend for two months. But we are very lucky that facetime and zoom exist because without those two the pandemic would have been 10 times harder.

    This short video reflects on the producer’s experience of the covid-19 lockdown. The producer of this video became depressed because it was hard to keep himself entertained. The black and white filter in the video shows how drab life was from his point of view and the lack of people on the streets marks how difficult it was to socialize during the lockdown for him. Many people picked up hobbies due to the amount of time they had, but for the producer, it was not enough and he needed to find a job to cut time. Boredom drives humans to do unnatural things, for example, Philip was so bored that he needed to find a job that involves cleaning to be entertained. Something that most people would not consider entertaining. I found it interesting when he mentioned that he returned to old hobbies but was still not good at those hobbies because hobbies do not require you to be good to enjoy them.

    During “Times of turbulence” it is important to find a healthy vice or hobby, some way to free your mind.
    The mind behind this film did a good job in pointing out that regaining that feeling of connectivity helped lift him through the tough time he was enduring. The black and white was key in pointing out the confusion and dullness that has followed this pandemic. It is impossible to predict the outcome or future of any situation, let alone the duration of the lockdown and/or the pandemic. Finding healthy ways to cope with it has proven to be key though, in this instance and many others.

    This video describes how most people have been feeling over the past few years. Covid has had a negative impact on a lot of people because of the restrictions placed to reduce the infection rate. These restrictions have caused the population to change the way they live their lives. We are all locked up in our homes and have had to find new things to spend our time on. At first it wasn’t that bad because people were able to try new things, but as the time passed we began missing what we had before. It has also become a large cause of depression for many people as well. This video was very relatable to a lot people and it shows how we are all struggling through this together.

    The short video “In times of turbulence”, talks about a 3rd-year Photography
    student, Philip Smart and how he went through the times of turbulence of the covid-19 pandemic. As the lockdown went on, Philip got to have a lot of time on his hand. He began to watch movies, play guitar and piano, etc, and made himself occupied. Yet, later on, he found out he was having depression as he was staying inside of his house for too long. He decided to go outside and walk the dog and do things that would make him happy, which he eventually gets out of the depression. The story of Philip reminded me of when I was in high school during the pandemic when things were online and everybody had to be at home. I was also experiencing depression and anxiety. I was having a hard time focusing and keeping up with my schoolwork while dealing with my depression. Then later on I found out that I enjoyed cooking, which made me feel better and cope with my stress and anxiety. The short video “In times of turbulence” had a lot of things to relate to and made me feel a connection between me and Philip Smart.
