On Saturday, May 5, 2018, I was able to attend the Digital Media and Animation Senior showcase. There was a piece that really stuck out to me done by Shanelle Chinnery called “Shut The F**k Up, It’s The Pup In The Cup.” Below is the video.
I love this piece because it takes such a serious topic and finds a way to talk about it in a way that’s suitable for almost everyone. There are some comedy and jokes but they are done tastefully and in a way that doesn’t feel like she is making fun of suicide. Also, it just sheds a positive light and shows how much life is worth. I feel like everyone has had similar thought before and the fact that Shanelle was vulnerable enough to take and experience and make it into this positive messages shows how much she cares.
