SYSTEM, completed in June 2014, is a 10 minute long narrative single screen film, which employs tropes of the psychological thriller genre to reveal real-life perceptions of fear and anxiety in public contexts.

The research aimed to develop a fictional screenplay examining anxiety disorders based on factual accounts of fear and associated coping mechanisms. SYSTEM used recognised cinematic conventions and traits of psychological thrillers to connect representations of fear and anxiety with aspects of consumer culture and broader discourses around behaviour and identity.
