Tangled Web

1999, 6 minutes

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!

Tangled Web is a short film created as a Pilot that was shown at UK Film Festivals. The 6 minute short follows the new beginings of a couple who have met over the internet. Having only seen each other in pictures from then shoulders up, neither know or have admitted that the other has a life affecting disability ..... so what happens once they meet? Do people with disabilities have prejudice towards others or should they be more attracted and sympathetic towards them? Is it ok to keep such a big secret from someone until you meet? Throwing up many questions about disabilities and how it is dealt with across the board this film is a witty, heart felt piece of cinematography. For me, playing the Lead Female Role of Carol, who is in fact deaf, proved to be both a great challenge and huge success.
