Be You

An animated media collage for a poem concerning body image, from the perspective of teenagers living in our media driven world. We see photoshopped images of celebrities, performers and sports stars, which aren’t real and just make us feel bad; we see close-ups of wobbly bits and skinny bones which don’t make us feel any better. The animation examines young people’s views on healthy, positive body images and the challenges they face from the media, their peers and society.
