Too Far

When an intimate picture is leaked online, the pressure it creates is too much for the couple at the heart of it.

'Too Far' was commissioned by Trafford Domestic Abuse Services to educated young people about some of the dangers in sharing intimate pictures in a relevant, non-judgemental way.

In this short film, described as 'Skins meets Memento', viewers are invited to make up their own minds about the situation rather than having an opinion forced upon them.

Director Statement

'Too Far' is a short film that was produced for Trafford Domestic Abuse Service. What I was trying to do was to show how once you take a photo and send it to someone, you no longer have any control over how it is going to be used. I told the story backwards because I wanted to show the consequences and then see how innocently it all started.
