What It Feels Like is short animated documentary that investigates voice hearing. Small boxes that contain flip book style animation are presented to show the emotion that people who hear voices feel.
The documentary is experimental and expressive in its approach, where the positives and negatives combine to fully express the subversive nature of a misunderstood behaviour.
Completed What It Feels Like in 2018: So far it has screen in over 40 film festivals and won the following awards –
International Documentary Award – Focus on Ability Film Festival,
Best Documentary Short – St Neots Film Festival,
Best Amateur Short Film – Walthamstow Smartphone Film Festival,
Smart Documentary Award – SmartPhilm Festival,
Experimental Short Award – Dolgoji Experimental Shorts Film Festival.
