Produced and helped develop Dysmorphia with a group of creatives in hopes of starting a conversation around unhealthy ideals of beauty and perfection.

The short film offers an artistic take on how young men find it increasingly difficult to recognise and express their emotions, leading to body-image related issue and even body dysmorphic disorder. It also aims to address the much larger problem; while external influences on young men have multiplied there is still a lack of constructive and earnest conversations about what it means to be a ‘man’.


In 2017, the NHS reported that eating disorders had risen by 70% in men, in only six years.
