Rising artist, Yiig, with strong artistic ability, drops a visual-compelling short film with enticing sound design for his debut single “District Girl”, a story about a good girl with bewildered and curious behavior, making bad decisions and wrong choices in life as she spun herself into a series of affliction and misfortune. Yiig was inspired to shed some light on the implication of drug abuse and carelessness in the world today through this short film, showing serious imagery to the individuals who are similarly walking towards an error-ridden path, by bringing a real-life story to life showing a journey of an isolated student that was influenced to utilizing drugs and transformed into being a distant partygoer. The aim of this short film is to bring attention to the drastic change influenced by drug abuse, negligence and recklessness in life. The short film can be closely related to the following quote “Life is all about making choices. Always do your best to make the right ones, and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones”.
District Girl starts off with simple cinematographic scenes, utilizing a moody tone and shades of green that represent possessive and enviousness, which can be clearly visible in the scene where the girl is reading through a Playboy Magazine with intimate contents. Then, things started to turn dark and intense when she was “devoured” by the flower in purple that symbolizes drug. In the climax of the film, the flickering lights, fast-cutting scenes, shaky camera movements, and shades of red have established uneasiness and created an edgy atmosphere. The music composition features “Black Mirror” (British dystopian science fiction anthology television series ) vibes with intriguing sound design, hypnotizing progressive melodies, and strong distorted basslines. This is truly an impressive achievement for Yiig’s debut and has exerted his utmost efforts as well as professionalism in terms of music production and his vision in cinematography.
