Skinny is a short film that watches a young woman's struggle with body image and self esteem. As she contemplates taking drastic measures to change her image she meets a well-rounded person who changes the way she thinks about the size and shape of her body.
Skinny is a personal look into the journey of body acceptance through the expression of burlesque and medium of animation. Since the film’s release, Skinny has played in three film festivals and counting! Including UAT Digital Video Festival and the Coney Island Film Festival.
