1. We were tasked to create a non-fiction narrative about 24 film negatives that were found on the street.
2. After getting them all printed. We took some time to see if we could come up with the story from the negatives.

3. From looking at the photos, we saw that the they were taken on one day at a gathering, possibly a wedding. With this in mind, We decided to tell this one woman’s story since it seems like the camera could have been hers, we call her Andrea:

4. We decided to do a live performance/skit where two detectives are tasked with finding the missing person’s case of Andrea Leandro. She was last scene at this wedding and in the skit we go through the images and slides, and through her life to try to determine what happened to her. We developed her relationships with the individuals in the photos and added some more background information to portray the complete picture of Andrea.

Here are our analysis of the photos and the stories we developed around them.

Here is the script of the detective and how they portray Andrea’s life by trying to figure out what happened to her.

For an interactive component, we handed out this sheet for the viewers to be an active participants in the search for our missing person.
