When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, did you smile?
Obsessed by appearance, a woman applies mysterious cream to help reignite her stagnant marriage. But when her skin peels away, her obsession soon turns his fantasy into a nightmare.
From the multi award winning Writer and Producer team comes their second short film, Skin Deep. Voiceless once again, the narrative relies upon performance to deliver a powerful message, hidden behind stunning visuals and haunting atmospheres.
We are happy to say that although the content is layered with messages and meanings, this tense film is one to simply enjoy, if you can! We want the audience to take what they will from the film, be it the exploration of body issues, adulterous fantasies, marital problems or sinister obsessions. As long as you enjoyed it, we would have succeded.
Why use beautiful actresses for a film exploring body image?
Skin Deep explores the inner issues with perfection and body image, a problem that effects us all, rather than solely concentrating on those imposed by culture or society.
A unquie element to the piece is the original Millie, who will be viewed by audiences as perfect to begin with. Therefore when getting lost in her journey of transformation, we question the very need for change.
'You think the camera adds ten pounds, your eyes add twenty.'
With news reports of untested beauty products being brought over the internet and the damaging effects it can have, Skin Deep puts a twist on both, creating a unique and somewhat haunting experience.
