I decided not to make any 'characters' in my film, as I wanted the people to feel faceless. Passed over as society degrades sufferers of severe mental health problems to "nutters".
I had this idea to use the side effects warning from medication to make up the figure. As though it is his condition that defines him, and he is nothing else.
I cut each figure out with a scalpel, and then scanned them backed with green paper, so I could easily composite the medication warning animation underneath.
