(if the player doesn't work, try YouTube)
This short subject combines performance art, video, and political commentary into one unique package. Christopher Westfall plays nine distinct characters, each with a distinct opinion on the issue of gay marriage. The medium of video freed him from the limitations of a real-time performance piece, allowing him to create his characters by altering his own natural appearance over time rather than relying on makeup effects, wigs, and false beards. The end result is a poignant, humorous, and entertaining discourse on a pertinent topical issue.
