Gizmo Films supporting ‘Second Skin’ short film starring Sheila Hancock

Gizmo Films is supporting the Kickstarter campaign for the short film ‘Second Skin’, a 15 min short film exploring issues of identity and self image across generations of women.

An all female cast is led by Sheila Hancock.

The film is set a few decades in the future, where cosmetic surgery is an everyday norm. Psychological issues are tackled by changing the body and face – seven women of different generations, from teenager to older age, choose to change their image in an attempt to solve their life problems. The film explores the impact of social media on the mental health of the millennial generation and generations to come.

20% of the profits of the film will go to the charity Rethink Mental Illness with whom we are collaborating. Please support this great film and a good cause.
