About this submission

I decided to tell this story as I wanted to capture the turbulent feelings of a young couple who are simultaneously trying to carve out careers in creative industries. I wanted to showcase the potential consequences of the pressures that young people face today to ‘become successful’ quickly. Bleach endeavours to explore the societal expectations of men and women, and what happens when those roles are subverted. Both Logan and Michael expose each other's fears and insecurities, but the film allows them a chance of redemption to either subscribe to or reclaim that narrative.
