Talking heads

A set of films about self-esteem and the role the internet and social media can play


A set of three short films which capture online attitudes towards themes surrounding self-esteem. Three characters talk directly to camera, sharing their inner thoughts about how certain things online affects them. Primarily intended to be used as a starting point to open a class discussion about the truth behind some online images, media pressure and the need to fit in or be liked. These views, voiced by actors, were expressed by young people during Childnet’s interview and research work.


Please note that although the BBFC have rated these 'talking heads' 'U', the themes discussed in these short clips may be mature for some, as the characters speak about the impact of social media on them. 

Key issues: self-esteem, the need to fit in, media pressure, self-confidence
