Must-see film!!

The idea for this movie was actually created  by a group of HS kids in the school I was telling you guys about (San Fernando Valley). One of the groups decided to film their little cousin (who was about 7 years old) describing how ugly she thought she was. They did this in order to show how little girls feel about themselves and to question where they get this from. The film about this little girl showed her explaining that she thought she was fat and ugly. The idea and their film was used as inspiration for Dove’s Self Esteem Fund. The video below is part of the dove Self Esteem movement and is AMAZING. Watch. (HW #7: Leave 2-3 sentence reaction to the film as a comment)

    I wasnt that siprise of what I saw because iI had the idea of photo shots but at the same time i was amaize of how i sometimes look up to this beutiful girls and i want to be like them but thats how strong we gwt influent by media. And is crazy how us as teens know this things and we still compere our selves with this models we know that beuty in TV is fake and we still suffer from this so I imagine a little girl that has a low self steem how would she feel if she doesnt see the real life beuty from the fake beuty that we see in TV.

    What I like about this video is that it makes a great impact in such short time. It proves and shows in the matter of a minute and half that beauty isn’t always what you see in the magazine, and that its not always important how you look in the outside; because what you see isn’t always the truth. Its a great impact and I hope it really makes girls think about how they feel when they look at an ad or a picture in a magazine.

    First of all, nobody in the world is perfect, that’s what all women and men also, should know. It’s sad, seeing that the woman’s natural beauty is overshadowed by technology and make up. Many people don’t know that almost everything that appears in magazines, newspapers and others are fake and disown their physical appearance, so you should always keep in mind that every person in the world has its own beauty whether inside or outside.

    This is not my first time watching this film, but yeah i think its a good way to show to all the little girls or any lady at any age of there life that beauty its in all of us and all the models we see on te.ve are not truly gorgeous just normal people like the rest of us. I believe the reason behind low self esteem its caused by the Companies who use famous Hot Girls & Guys (skinny and perfect smile) to make comercials and sell their products making normal viwers think that they are fat and ugly.

    By the way sometimes been skinny makes people start judging you.

    My reaction to this video of the foundation of little girls self of steam of dove i think is great!!! not becasue it shows how the technology can fix you but because not everything you see out there its really wat it is , so basicly little girls look up to grown women that look beatiful but they dont knoe that thats not really them.. i hope that alot of people could watch this video and realise that we should all be happy with our selfs and never feel ugly beacuse we are all beatiful no matter what they said :).. peace and love to all!!!..

    I really liked this video because it goes to shows all girls out there who are dying to be “perfect” like their favorite celebrities, that there is such a process that goes into magazine covers and photo shoots. All of the airbrushing made the woman look like a completely different, younger person. This shows that you can put on all of the make up that you want to feel “perfect” but they even do mroe than that on magazine covers. They shows they fixing her neck line, extending her head upward. This video was really informative and I think that it’s a great thing that Dove has put this out.

    This video is helpful to women and girls of all ages. It doesn’t matter how you look or who you are, because the model you see on a billboard or on a front cover of a magazine isn’t the way she’s pictured. All men and women are beautiful and unique in their own way. This video just proves that oneself is special and beautiful the way we are. This just demonstrates that technology changes people to become “perfect” or to reach “perfection”.

    this video is really interesting, because in less than 2 minutes it actually tell us that there is no perfect women. that “perfect” models are fake and the way they appear on magazines is far from how they look in reality. it let us know that she is a normal women like any other women out there. so no girl should get that image of perfection because it doesn’t exists it is only a computer program, photoshop, that’s all it is.

    Wow Ms.Sued this video is really amazing. The people who did this have a point on why young girls self esteem are so low. Not even models get to reveal their own beauty their photo shopped. I really think that its wrong for famous people to photo shop their models I wonder how the models feel, maybe ugly and self concessions because for the producer or the advertisement or what ever it may be the girls natural beauty is not enough

    This video shows how beauty can depress some people who think that they are ugly, but little do they know the person in the AD is nothing but make-up & technology..Video was great -thanks

    The video is very creative and communicates its message well. The ad really picks your brain on how the concept of beauty all around you is percepted. It was interesting to watch-thanks.

    I agree with this message that the video is showing because no matter want bother you and what people say to you still have beautiful figures.

    i strongly agree with the message of the video, young girls especially look up to these models as if they embody perfection, As you can see the media try’s to decieve us by making us think we have no flaws, and we must look a certain way to be beautiful. We are are all unique and should learn to love ourselves, and not let let other’s dictate how we should look.

    i thought this video was really good because it explains alot about problems that girls have. I actually saw this before and i think its true the magazines and everything like that does make people feel ulgy, because the famous people always look perfect in the pictures and everything but there actually not they have effects too and they should show it instead of just hidding it or photoshoping it.

    I think this video was put together really well. In a short time it got the message through which is that the beauty we see in magazines, t.v., billboards, etc is not what it truly is. I always kind of suspected that people do touch ups on the photos but its incredible so see how much can be changed with just a click of a button. It’s actually amazing to see that a lot of girls and women out there try so hard to achieve perfection meanwhile perfection doesn’t exist because what they see isn’t true. Every picture we see in magazines or billboards have been fixed in some way so that it looks perfect. I think that the people out there who try to look perfect just because the media portrays it as perfect, should stop that and be who they want to be which is what will make them happy.

    I like this video because it really shows how the crew worked with the girl from scratch to the finished product of her.They were mainly using B-roll with the place and pictures

    This film is amazing and showed a great point in such a short amount of time. You see many teenagers trying to have a perfect body and doing very dangerous things to achieve it. Many things you see in the media are meant to portray a perfect body and this video shows that they do many things, from makeup to technology, to achieve the look they want. Teenagers should be happy with the way the look physically and mentally because it’s not what’s on matters on the outside; it’s what matters on the inside.

    i really liked how they put the video together. it really impressed me how they did all the facesul things on her face. like the makeup, the hair, etc. but i really liked the way how they knew what they was doing when they put this video together.

    I really like the video because in about a minute they show you the idea that in the media almost everything that seems beautiful is fake. I didn’t got surprise that much about how the media does this process because I saw this type of videos before. But what impresses me is that, with make up and photo retouching you can create almost a totally different person. The sad part is that because of this fake beauty little girls and women get depressed thinking that they are ugly just because they don’t look like people in the magazines. The thing is that nobody is perfect and everybody has its own beauty, even artist get make up and their photos get retouch so that they can look perfect.

    This video has made me think that maybe every flawless models that we see aren’t as perfect as we think. A lot of people put them selves down thinking im not perfect like that model and beautiful but never stop to think that maybe they dont look like that in real life. this video can make people realize that no one is perfect and that we all have flaws.

    i liked this video because it was straight to the point and and they knew what they where doing.they where using B-roll to show what companies do to models in pictures.

    I was surprised by the video. I had no idea that a company would go through such a process to sell their product. It really makes me think about how much the media can influence us with “distorted images”.

    I think this video has a good point because many girls have low self of steem and they think they are not pretty. It doesnt matter if you are fat or skinny evertone is pretty in the inside and out. Every girl should think they are pretty and should not care what other people think or say about them.

    I actually thought I was going to see the little girl. But good that I didn’t, it would have broken my heart. But yeah, I’ve seen this procedure being done before in an interview with Kim Kardashian. She was saying that that wasn’t even her on the cover of magazines, that’s how much they “refine” them. It’s crazy what technology can do, they want, if not close to perfection, perfection. Eight year old girls shouldn’t have a care in the world, they should run around freely with no worries. They shouldn’t be walking around concerning themselves with nonsense. It’s ridiculous!

    In my opinion this dove film is outstanding. Because in a matter of 1 min and 17 sec. it showned very important opinions and spoke out its point. While watching this it shows how even a natural beauty is not cut out for what people in films or model agencys look for. In their eyes we are all imperfect. So no one should feel better then others.

    Beauty truly is disorted. just by looking at this makes me wonder how every AD in my seventeen mag is made. when i look at the pictures im just amazed by there beuty. come to find out everything is edited and airbrushed. technology can make a person go from imperfetion to a ravishing person. but why would it all matter if in the end its all fake?

    My reaction to this video is …wow I don’t even really have a reaction, its like incredible the pressure on us women this video is showing how un perfect a person is and how most ordinary people are not good enough to be up on bill bored. many women look up to these images the media puts up on magazines, they diet and even starve them selves to try and look like someone who truly does not look like that …and not even that the fact that we are not even good enough as we are and how they point out the imperfection. my opinion really is that this is why people self-esteems are at the floor.

  30. October 13, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    I strongly agree on the message this video is trying to get across; i my self a little 5 year old sister; and she complains about being ugly and that she gets teased at school. i wish kids of all ages can stop thinking that its okay to put your self down like that.Its unhealthy; everyone should accept them selves how they are.

    I think this film was put together really well. It shows why woman shouldnt be so hard on themselves due to the way they look. What we see in the magazine and on television is perfection, and we all know nobody is built to be perfect.
