Nerissa Bradley: An Everyday Human

Created by: Brittany Nguyen

Nerissa Bradley is a creative entrepreneur who’s life wasn’t always a linear path. The direction of this piece was to show Nerissa Bradley as a multidisciplinary artist by showing pieces of her musical, literary and performance side. Her multiple facets all unite into one philosophy which is expressed through out the entire piece.

This video takes a raw approach and non-standard approach in lighting and camera composition. To have the subject places in the middle and almost not talking to the camera, gives the piece a feel that people are not use to when watching a typical documentary piece. The harsh lighting reflects the messaging that Bradley says in her spoken word. It is to reflect on the harsh reflect that she is expressing.
