Logline: A pastry shop owner tears herself apart to catch the eye of a customer.
A 3-minute horror short that's heavy on the practical fx with no After Effects, 'Skin Deep' was shot over two days on location in Toronto Made specifically for Rode Mics' #myrodereel competition, 'Skin Deep' is an absurdist parable about impossible beauty standards (served with a delicious croissant with just a smidgen of blood on it).
The film was a finalist in the Rode Reel Best Visual FX category (and the only film in the finalists to go with fully practical effects).
