Cocoon  The Bahamas / 2011 / 6 mins

This short film is centered on an individual that appears to be willfully enclosed within a colorful crochet cocoon. The façade that the character in this story has built is abruptly ripped away and the individual is suddenly thrown out of their comfort zone and into a new, exciting but frightening world. The character is then faced with the uncomfortable choice of either reverting to or abandoning the image that they have so carefully constructed and become accustomed to. ‘Cocoon’ focuses on the subject of identity and the fear of change and rejection, issues that every person will face at some point in their lives. It presents the process of finding and facing oneself in a very literal and basic way in an attempt to appeal and connect with a broad audience of people.
