A New Type of Pain was my thesis project for my Bachelor's Degree.

The film itself is a short campaign, intended to be spread via Facebook and other viral social media, to raise awareness for the very real problem of cyberbullying amongst teenagers and young adults. We wanted to portray the physical manifestations of elements that exist in the unique type of pain that results from being a victim of online bullying.

The main character finds himself in a handful of painful situations that show the effects of net violence beyond the computer screen.
