getting something out (2017)

An animation based on a conversation with someone about their anxiety.

I used my final year of university as a time to study the link between animation and communication, specifically the way animation can help those struggling to talk about their mental health. I started by asking others to record what their mental state would sound/look like, either by drawing, writing or recording themselves talking. One of the participants spoke to me about their struggle with communicating what their feeling, leading to this film. The audio used is myself repeated their words to protect their anonymity.
