Project Main Details

Sorry Animation 
This is a narrative digital animation about my tendencies to over apologize. I have a script and am hoping to get a narrator who can really make it stand out, similarly to when spoken word poets perform. It's about self discovery and gaining confidence to speak. See script below. Final piece will be about 2 minutes.

Script Details

(defeated, apologetic tone) I’m sorry. I don’t know why I am, I’m just, sorry.
I Counted all my ‘sorries’ for a day once, and it totaled to 43. The best part? I can’t actually remember doing anything wrong. No stepped on toes, broken objects or hurt feelings, yet I still averaged three ‘sorries’ per hour.

I apologize for everything- If someone bumps into me, I’m sorry. If they interrupt me, I’m still sorry. If I want to share an idea with a group, I open with “I’m sorry, but can I say something?” instead of just sharing what I think.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. These words overwhelm me and I feel small…. I am small but shouldn’t feel the same, I should feel strong, smart and confident in myself……..but I don’t.

(agitated/upset/sad tone) I’m sorry I don’t see myself as strong, I’m sorry my high voice seems ‘shrill to you’ and I’m sorry for saying sorry, but I cant help it.

Sorry has become an automated response, much like how you hold your breath when going underwater. I don’t think about it, I just do it.

(realization/aha moment/ building confidence slowly)When I do think about it though, I realize I’m not actually sorry, but I’ve been conditioned to feel this way- a tick in my mind sets off the word before I can think of something else to say.

(confident tone) It’s time to stop asking for forgiveness when I have not done wrong. I can still be nice without a ‘sorry’ thrown in, I can still be polite while being confident, I can still respect others without putting myself below them!

I’m not sorry.
