Dont think i can help Curtis. I hope others can help your film
I want the film to be visual so there's no dialogue. The idea is to use visual metaphors to make the audience empathize with symptoms...
...for example, ideas I've had include: Trying to get out of bed but being physically chained to it, everyone around him is overly and annoyingly happy. Etc, any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!
What about feeling like a fraud (not sure how you'd show that... Like not fitting in?), or wanting to die - perhaps gladly going to sleep in a coffin, or perhaps that could signify the 'death' of one's ambitions.
Yessss, my depression feels like I'm laying in the coffin watching ppl living while I lay down dead yet conscious of everything.
Also, feeling l
Ups... Anyway, also feeling like I am thorn apart between life and death... Existing in the middle like two forces or men pulling me each on their side while I suffer.
Aaaalso, depression for me feels like I'm not able to see my future and seeung ppl around me having lives while I live in the neverending nightmare of waking up in the same empty day.
Don't wanna be annoying but... Sometimes it feels like being followed by someone who holds me from speaking, interacting or walking, forcing me pay all attention to him while he just keeps silently staring at me.
Our moods are filters. So what if you have a scene and then two orbits representing the eyes panning the scene filtered in blue.
Wow thanks guys! Great ideas. The coffin idea is interesting, maybe a glass coffin invisible to others.
Love 1 I like the use of colour when presenting depression. There's a great film 'A Single Man' and the colours are very desaturated, but becomes more vivid in scenes that gives the character a reason to live
What do you guys think of the character being underwater? But the rest of the world is normal, so would use VFX to put a water filter over the world
That's interesting too. one more thought. Rumination, or excessive thinking, is characteristic of depression. I would have the din of thought, the cacophony playing and contrast with, say, the sound of a bird singing. But protagonist can't hear b/c
din of thinking is too loud.
I like it! Break a leg! <3
I see it as watching one's life on TV. Things happening, people talking, but in the end you are still alone in your room in front of a box.
Hello, Curtis M formerly Nathan
My fluffy looooove!
Hey Curtis. That's very different from Nathan! Thanks for coming out so to speak
Hello, Curtis. Lovely name :)
Stay strong, please... ❤️
Pls stay safe... Pls pls
I am thinking bout you...
I have found some comfort in the realisation that I have to manage my situation rather than cure it. Not sure if that helps you, but I'm sending *Hugs* and solidarity anyway. You're not alone!
