If you want to change something about yourself, whether it is your hair color, your makeup, or your nose, I support you. If you do not, then I support you in that. I urge you to do exactly what you want to do to make yourself feel beautiful. And I’m not talking about beauty according to magazine standards or Hollywood standards, but your standards.

If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.

The idea for the original video of A Beautiful Lie was to feature this element of graphic text running across certain images to illustrate and highlight specific environmental facts and issues but in the end it was left with a more subtle, minimal approach that left the icebergs and glaciers open and easier to see and share. You can watch the alternate version called A Beautiful Lie 2.0. here.

When you don’t have many friends and you don’t have a social life you’re kind of left looking at things, not doing things. There’s a weird freedom in not having people treat you like you’re part of society or where you have to fulfil social relationships. —Tim Burton
