Synopsis

With the pressures of society ever visible thanks to our pervasive media, what lengths will we go to be be accepted? In this film Martin is faced with fast-paced and ever-changing trends, and with his real friends out of the way, how will he cope with the destructive influence of those whom he thought he'd left behind?

Inspiration

Addiction isn't funny. Until we get involved that is!

This short was filmed, in its entirety, in the space of just one day, and involved us walking around in all manner of embarrassing makeup and clothes. We wanted to create a funny film that is a kind of reflection on "the youth of today" - just how long do those fads last? And for whom do you follow the trends?
