NOBODY IS NORMAL - CHILDLINE
CATHERINE PROWSE

‘Nobody is Normal’ highlights the issues young people face to let them know that it’s OK to feel this way, it’s a shared experience, and reassure them that nobody should suffer alone. Catherine Prowse has created a surreal film which follows the story of a strange, shadowy creature disguising itself as a seemingly normal teenager in order to fit in at school. But we soon find out that things at this school aren’t quite as “normal” as they seem, and that everybody had been hiding something inside.

The film is a beautifully crafted stop motion animation piece, with its soundtrack provided by Radiohead. Their classic song “Creep” perfectly captures the melancholy mood of the story and introduces itself to a new generation of teens who may also feel like they don’t fit in.
