Disenthrall | Short Film
An introverted video game developer starts to lose touch of reality when her only friend passes away, leading to panic when she begins to confuse her work creations with the real world.
About the Project
This short explores the concept of creative burnout, and the psychological effects of an increasingly digital world on the current young generation working in the creative industries. It explores a world in which one lives in isolation online - where there is little to no support in the physical world, the concept of partnership/help is reduced, and the individual often feels overwhelmed from the lack of support in both work and personal life.
Its key theme is that one can’t be distracted from facing personal problems without dire consequences - in this case, of losing touch of what is real and important.
