Director Statement

"Unveiled" is a short film dealing with the societal idealization of identity. Written in the style of 1984, I wanted to bring in a sense of comedy with the paper bags. This topic has rung true to me for quite sometime. I have always been a believer of finding your own place in society - finding your own interests and your own lifestyles. It's what makes for a beautiful world. But with our society, we are rapidly turning Orwellian with media controlling our outlook of the people around us, our faces "veiled" by screens, and our obsessive need to fit in whether it be in person or through technology.
Unveiled takes that idea a plays with a bit of the humor behind it. Paper bags are used as the symbol of lost identity, plain and simply, because it looks silly. And that's the point. It's so easy to take that bag off and experience the world, but so many of us are too afraid to do it. Why? That's a good question.
