Description

"Anyway you look at it, women's work is not for sissies. Most men would have a hard time at it if they were to change jobs with wife, mother or girlfriend. Even an efficiency expert would be staggered by the amount of chasing around and indoor road work that the woman takes as a matter of course..." I made this video for the Volvo Ocean Race (SCA All-Female Team, Awe-Inspiring Women) Ad Competition. Since I had only one week to make it before the deadline, I decided to go with archival footage and make it educationally campy and surreal. It was not really fitting the brief, but I thought I would do it anyway to see what it was like venturing into Crowdsourcing. The ironic things is, I stopped watching TV over 20 years ago.
