Now on the second feature film, I have been working for Substantial Films as a psychological consultant, advising on characterisation, psychological coherence, embodiment of character, and therapeutic process. I work directly with the script-writer, The Director, and with the key actors.
The first film is called ‘Three Acts’ and is centred around an actor struggling with a Dissociative Identity Disorder. The film carries both a background of comedy and a background of trauma, and is a fundamentally compassionate vision of this complex experience, when it is customary for the cinema to portray people with DID as serial killers.
The second film is called ‘False Witness’, and is currently in post-production
