Self Discovery #1 - Double Entendre

The first aspect is Aubrey’s hometown, Lawrence Heights, otherwise referred to as “the jungle” throughout the short film, providing the viewer with an understanding of the havoc which takes place within the town for it to be given the name. This is paired with the jungle-like characteristics of the current state of mind which Aubrey is in, as a result of the concoction of a whirlwind of public success partnered with private, emotional turmoil. These two aspects are used as the foundation of the short film, as Aubrey compares and contrasts his life in Lawrence Heights with his current, deranged lifestyle as a musician.
