PAPER THIN is my first short film. It was a micro-short commission for Exeter Phoenix, part of their Two Short Nights Festival in November 2018. It is a surreal, abstract depiction of my experiences. Specifically focusing on the depersonalising effects that a panic attack can induce, realised using a mix of live action and stop motion.
