Cerniello worked with photographer Keith Sirchio to take photos of the subject of the video, Danielle and her extended family. They used the photos to show the tolls of aging on the human body. It's not easy to pinpoint the tiny changes throughout the video and that's exactly what the creator wanted. The description of the video says it best: "The idea was that something is happening but you can't see it but you can feel it, like aging itself."
