The Confessional is a scripted web series produced entirely remotely during the spring of 2020.​

Whilst The Confessional is a fictional app, social media has become our religion and priest, the place where many of us seek support and redemption for our daily lives. At the same time, we invite judgement and ridicule in a space that holds little room for nuance and is rife with "cancel-culture".


And what of the unseen dangers, lurking behind the trolls and divisive comments, that threat of collected data, the harvested thoughts and images we assume are private?

Each episode is meant to incite debate and empathy, not be a damning judgement. Our aim was to deconstruct how we judge and categorise others (and ourselves), as well as look at the deeper thoughts and feelings behind our facades, real and virtual.

We are developing a second series that will further explore these topics and paint the bigger picture.
