A short film about Kelly, a sufferer of anxiety depression and OCD. She works the late shift at a supermarket and lives with her flatmate Meg and Meg's artist boyfriend, James. Kelly witnesses something lifechanging and it's here she is forced into a dilemma of conscious; she is forced to live, to trust and to face the world outside her controlled existence.
The film debates overlooking a mental illness, the authority in everyday life and questions how you would handle being a witness to a crime and even whether education helps 'better' a person or not.
Running time: 25 mins

We are a team of experienced film-makers looking for finanacial assistance to produce this truly fantastic film. With this film we aim to create a debate surrounding the topic of social anxiety and OCD which is so often misunderstood. We need £1,500 to complete our production fund.
The £1,500 will be used to cover various production expenses such as:
- Securing locations
- Camera sliders and dollies (rental)
- Festival submission
- Travel expenses
- Make-up and styling
In supporting our project you will be supporting us in highlighting awareness to a mental health illness that is often mis-understood and dismissed.
"Anxiety affects our whole being. It affects how we feel, how we behave and has very real physical symptoms" (www.medicalnewstoday.com) and through ANY OTHER DAY we hope to realistically portray the affects this disease may have.

EMILY-JANE CURTIN - Scriptwriter/Director
Emily has lived in London, England all her life and she is inspired by the city's highs and lows. She has suffered from anxiety and OCD since she was 13 and wanted to write a script that showed the different elements of anxiety and the many ways it affects the sufferer and consequently everyone else. Mental illness is very important to Emily and she is excited to show her direction on the reality of anxiety and depression, using her first-hand experiences. She is currently at Ravensbourne, working around her BA Film Production course.
A review of Emily-Jane's previous film she wrote in 2012.
"Emily-Jane Curtin's beautiful, simple film mixes shifting time frames and perspectives to paint a complex portrait, perhaps in tune with Joseph Gomez’s instance that cinema exists to create dialectic structures. On a simpler, more emotive level, the film resounds beautifully with the bitter-sweet, sometimes overpowering emotions of parenthood and childhood. A brilliant watch…" - Brett Gerry.
Other Ways You Can Help
With this project we aim to go beyond showcasing the effects of anixety and OCD, but to also encourage a debate, for people to ask questions and to allow those who do suffer from this form of mental illness to know that their voices can be heard!
