An interactive film proudly funded by Arts Council England.
When Ava finds herself pressured by boyfriend Matty to send nudes of herself, things head in a downwards spiral as her pictures get into the hands of her school peers and become exposed for all to see.
When social media becomes a place of bullying, torment and hate and school becomes a place of fear and victimisation, Ava can feel life, pain and shame tightening like a noose around her neck.
With all hope lost, Ava decides to go offline. But for how long?
‘Offline’ was designed to challenge the perceptions around sexting culture amongst teenagers. Our aim with this project was to spark conversation around a topic that is often deemed as too uncomfortable to discuss. With more and more young people coming into regular contact with technology from an early age, we thought it was important to highlight two of the most common
issues young people face online, cyberbullying and sexting.
"Brilliant resource, and method for tackling super tricky, current issues with young people."
