‘Reality’ is an animated short film from artist Akvile Magicdust. Expanding on Akvile’s comic of the same name, the film sees protagonist Lucy pick herself back up after a trip to the skate park doesn’t turn out the way she thought it would. Originally a weekly Vice comic, ‘Lucy, the Confused Girl’, follows the trials and tribulations of a girl called Lucy, and her friends Alien and Tiger. Conceptualised while sitting at home with a broken leg following a skateboarding accident, Akvile was inspired by the Moxi Girls Skate Team to create Lucy; a fearless, feminine protagonist. The stories explore uncomfortable situations and feelings, including social dilemmas and general anxiety.
