Fear of water. A track I made for the World Listening Day, using space sounds from NASA, water molecules manipulated by laser beam from Kelvin Building, Glasgow University, and my own sounds and music.

second skin (2011). Trailer for short film. HD Video. 16:9. Colour. Stereo. 17 minutes. ‘second skin’ is a visual study on memory, alienation and innocence by first time filmmaker and visual artist Juno Doran, using film to explore her own identity and roots, as the links with her past disappear. There is no narrative and the film is charged with visual content, allowing the viewers to be taken through the different stages of a personal journey into the past, present and future, in a free and uncompromising way, resulting in a possible metaphor for the journey of life itself.
The film is divided into five different chapters, showing the progression of her personal journey: the arrival, visiting her birthplace, now a derelict space, observing life as it happens outside of her involvement, following her toddler son as he discovers the world, and finally with a dramatic visual conclusion summing up the noise and entanglement of life and memories.
Although referencing personal issues to the director with a great level of intimacy, this film does not offer specific information about dates, places or people involved, allowing anyone to relate to it in many levels.
“second skin” is Juno Doran’s film début, made primarily as an introduction to the medium of film as well as a work of personal reconciliation with the erasing of roots with her birthplace, following the death of her grandmother. It was made with minimal video equipment and under very difficult conditions. The film is also her début in editing and sound design.
