WATCHING

$5.40$15.00

Amy is a young woman with a very dark shadow. It follows her everywhere she goes, it knows who she talks to, when she goes to sleep, and what she's afraid of. Amy has a stalker. But hers is not the only secret amongst her family. Masked figures haunt their every movement, and seem to know their every thought.

What would you do if someone never stopped watching?

EXTRACT: Today I saw the devil. He didn't have red skin, or horns, nor a tail, or pitchfork. There wasn't any brimstone, or fire. Just a gentle breeze and the sigh of the wind. I don't know what I expected from him. But it wasn't what I got. What I got was my own reflection in a tiny puddle of water. I saw the devil, but the devil was me.

Female | Teen | under 3 minutes

EXTRACT: The average human moment lasts around 3 seconds. That's any point of contact that is made. A handshake, a hug, a look. After this, people tend to break that contact, to look away. But what if they didn't? What if the moment were held for longer? What if they never looked away? Then they'd be watching you. What would you do if someone never stopped watching?
