Dissociative Identity Disorder Video
July 03, 2013
Many years ago, we made our own film of ourselves. We force-switched a few times. Mostly the video was for ourselves, not really for the public.
You can see 4 different people in the videos: Hart, Taelee, Aliessa and Dreal. It starts with Aliessa doing a test take, then goes through footage of others. We sliced out the bits of us meditating (to force-switch) because they could run as much as a couple minutes and were boring to watch.
What we like is to scrub the playhead across the footage and watch the different mannerisms, facial features & expressions, posture, etc. changing as we switched. It's a real eye-opener for us, because we don't (of course) see ourselves doing it in everyday life.
We're very camera-shy, partly because some of our abuse was involving cameras (when we film ourselves we can "perform" just fine — the aftermath is not so good :( ). But we did manage to make this one film with the Criss-mask off. Hope you enjoy it!
Aliessa tests the camera, gives a super-brief explanation of the project and mentions that we're going to the store for more equipment. We went to sleep with everything set-up, and recorded early the next day (hence the clothes change).
Somewhere in this video, Hart (now Faun New) fronts and talks directly to the Crisses about the point of the video, overall.
Please let us know what you think, and don't forget a thumbs-up if you like it!!
