Nobody's Perfect

A poetic short about the feelings of self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome which should inspire the viewer to find courage. Why does perfection make us feel so imperfect - when it's our imperfections that make us extraordinary?

This film shows the universality of a feeling that most people believe is 'just them'. It has been written from the heart in poetic format. The actors break the fourth wall and speak of feelings that are normally left unspoken but in the end they find the courage to achieve their dreams and encourage the viewer to do likewise. Filmed in Ireland (Dublin and Kildare) this film has been written and filmed by someone who herself suffers these feelings and often must remind herself that Nobody's Perfect.

Director Statement

The film 'Nobody's Perfect' was my final year project for my college degree. It relates to feelings of self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome which are so often unexpressed. The film shows how widespread these feelings are which should go some way to helping the viewer overcome such feelings in the knowledge that it is not 'just them'. The film ends on a positive and encouraging note which will hopefully empower and embolden the viewer with the words "you can". Filmed in Dublin and Kildare in Ireland with no budget at all by a poor penniless student who herself battles severe self-doubt and imposter syndrome.
