Hi, I'm Cameron and I loved Jessica Langes performance of Life on Mars on the TV show AHS: Freak Show so much that it inspired me to get my Theatre Arts class at school to recreate Jessica's performance in the first episode. The lead actress in the video is my Theater Arts teacher Debbie Hubbard. I first brought the idea for the recreation of Jessica's performance back in October when the first episode for Freak Show aired. When I first approached my teacher to the idea of the video and her playing Elsa she was immediately flattered and she was very excited to see what I was going to do with it. On my Youtube channel I like to recreate things that inspire me but with changing it and making it into my own and to possibly tell a different story.

The concept in the video is that everyone is supposed to be normal and anyone that tries to be different will be punished.

A freak is being punished for being different.

I directed, wrote, and edited the video myself. My teacher also helped direct the video, she even did her own hair, makeup, and costume for the video.

While rehearsing for the video my teacher studied Jessica Langes performance to get the feel of the character to show in our video without having to watch an episode of the TV show. She did this while adding her own take on the character. To prepare for the video we rehearsed for only 4 days and we filmed the actual video in 2 hours. We had to rush pre production because we did everything during the school day so we couldn't have conflict with the school schedule.

Debbie Hubbard did an amazing job in this video and I look forward to working with her in the future!
