THAT'S A WRAP!...
Filming has completed on our brand new short-form drama series for BBC Three!
Based on Eva O’Connor’s award winning play, OVERSHADOWED tells the story of a young Irish vlogger called Imogene (Michelle Fox)... Imogene is sparkling, vivacious and outgoing and with the arrival of her new camera, she’s challenging herself to documenting her whole life for her vlog... But there’s a dark presence in Imo’s footage and it won’t rest until she’s a shadow of her former self.
Starring a host of fresh new talent, this compelling, haunting and funny series has been shot in an innovative new format, telling Imo’s story through a series of vlogs. All eight 10 minute episodes are told from Imo’s point of view, giving a unique documentary-style insight into teenage life and Imo's increasingly fragile mental state as the story unfolds.
