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.

Please stop immediately, Nathan. STOP. And call for emergency medical help if you need help.
Which type of painkillers have you taken? You need to tell somebody what is going on, a friend or family member. Even if you feel fine, an overdose could still kill you. I'm not joking. So tell someone. Call an ambulance, anything.
Pls stop... I love you... Im here if you need anything... Pls stay saf
Call me pls... Call er... Oh... So sorry... I wish i could help more
I swear to God if you die i won't live...
I'm safe everyone, thank you for all your support. Gonna have a detox day
no you do not! take water, vomit, eat food and remember I love you
Please STOP now. Mixing painkillers and alcohol is dangerous.
You're purest, most beautiful person i KNOW...TAKE CARE of yourself pls
