Purpose of the music

The music is about the arrogance and haste in today's society. I did little bit of research on this and found an article from Burlington County Times which explain clearly that there are many people who truly believe their opinions are facts and cannot respect others’. This is a major problem with our world today. I believe this music is speaking to every person who trend to bottle things up until they has pushed to their limits which is not a healthy thing to do because they will find themselves feel this heavy burden and a lot of stress. The music also speaks to students who hang onto their problem/believe and cannot let it go. This problem can be found in all types of people, in all different walks and stages of life.

Core message & Approach

The core message for video content is to give a message to people who does or might suffer the arrogance in the stage of life. The message is to learn that the world does not revolve around them. If you don’t get what you want, don’t go and sulk about it. Move on with your day. You don’t need to hold grudges and bring everyone down with you in your miserable state. For people who never have this problem but might have in the future, the video can give them the feeling of stress and haste of what is it like to stuck on this type of situation and hope they can avoid it.
