The Silent Epidemic: OCD and a World in Crisis

This 7-minute documentary explores how global crises impact sufferers of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Starting with Covid-19, it looks back to other pandemics such as HIV/AIDS and swine flu to see trends in the worsening of symptoms and increases in diagnoses of OCD.

NB: This piece was made under lockdown and therefore the interviews took place over recorded Skype calls.

Foot Fetishes: Breaking the taboo?

Foot fetishes make up nearly half of all sexual fetishes, according to online fetish forum data collected by psychologist Dr G. Scorolli (2007).

Despite their prevalence as a sexual preference, our documentary explores whether, and why, there is still a taboo surrounding the foot fetish and how this has changed in recent years.

NB: This was the first long form documentary I made, along with two of my peers. There are areas of improvement needed!
