Withdrawal

This is a film about people who slowly, over time  withdraw from society becoming invisible. This can be for any number of reasons and is applicable to people at any age and stage of life.

In older people it can be illness, be it physical infirmity, a loss of confidence or degenerative illness. In young people it can be bullying, a feeling of difference, or even the dependency placed on a carer by another. 

In producing this film I took a number of creative decisions, firstly to shoot it slowly and in a single take. In choosing a model I looked for a girl who had few of the scars of life and marks of  the wear and tear of life on her body, who is in effect a clean canvas.
