“I’ll end up sharing a cell with the Manson Girls!”

“Panic Attack!” is a 3-minute, hand-drawn animation from the point of view of a woman having a panic attack.
I wanted the transitions between reality and her imagined fears to be seamless, so there are no edits --
it is one continually transforming drawing.

Are you bothered by repetitive thoughts, like "did I leave the coffee on?" or "am I pregnant with a devil-baby?"
This hand-drawn short explores anxiety, obsession, and one woman’s slippery hold on reality.
