The idea of this short film is based on my personal experiences and interactions with people from the fetish community. The film explores topics like shame and prejudice, all the while remaining entertaining and funny to watch. Each of the directors has had different focusses and goals and we combined them in order to create this result.

After pitching the idea, I mainly worked on the storyboard and the animatic, as well as developing the style for our characters. Later, I worked on the animation and the cleanup, specifically on the crowd shots, the montage sequence and the ending, with additional shots/animations here and there. Due to my specialization in sound design I also took on the role of communication with the sound team.
