Through my ATDP Berkeley summer course on Advanced Creative Writing, we discussed several topics and methods. They ranged from verisimilitude in present-day topics to meta scripts (self-reference). The idea of employing meta stories intrigued me, and this led to my meta-narrative final being worked on with great endurance and thought.
My partner, the fantastic Amy Chen, and myself made the video with several helpers and volunteers. We frequently reference pop culture by revealing an expensive shoe brand and a popular upper class clothing line; all the while through this, we remain following our meta plot.
