We have shot this film, and all went very well. We now need to edit and get the animations done.


Mental Health issues - Struggle is the story of one  teen girl who amid the pressures of modern society breaks down . Her parents want her to do well at school, the teachers at her school press the girls to get good grades, excel at sport and music. Her friendships are compromised by the latest fads, whether or not she is invited to the cool parties and accepted by the “it” girl groups. Social media pressurises her to be thin and pretty or face ridicule. No-one is to be trusted as even people she thought were friends troll her on social media. This adds to the struggle of how you have been raised versus what is expected of you by your peers.

 Admitting she has a problem is the hardest thing. She  thinks about ending it all, she just can't cope.. She asks her mother for medical help and counselling which is the first step to recovery. Then her crazy , spiritual auntie visits and takes her on a different path towards recovery.
