    Screenwriting and Production Design **** 'Outside' Three lives are connected in a world whose inhabitants predominantly prefer the secure realities of an implicit inside world to that of the physical world. The film explores how advancement in technology has effected the way we communicate and how as a result it may impact our society and environment. http://jroper.co.uk/film/outside/index.html
