Broken Mirror – A Xenogears Video Essay

This is the result of over a year’s worth of research and work and I must say I’m rather happy with it.

My final piece is a video essay covering the seminal JRPG ‘Xenogears’.

Although a video essay, I structured it more with a traditional 3-act story structure. I did this because I feel most video essays (and documentaries) feel rather stale due to their lack of emotional connection to their audience, often reciting information on end. My ultimate goal with my work is to tell compelling stories, so this was the result of that.

I hope you can enjoy watching this as much as I did making it.
