Synopsis: Lindsay (Pip Dwyer) is a twenty to thirty-something locked in a basement with nothing to accompany her aside from the bare essentials for survival and a Video Camera for a companion. Lindsay has done this because she is changing into something. She has little information as to what she is becoming, though she believes the outcome present a threat to the general public. Lindsay’s camera becomes the outlet for nearly all her thoughts and revelations through her time locked up.
Lindsay was developed through a combination of medical, theoretical and heuristic research. With a lot of attention placed on the character and themes of isolation. The medical research was organized around symptoms of mental illness, such as Schizophrenia, Depression and Bi-Polar Disorder, however for the sake of consistency, I’ll only focus on symptoms of Schizophrenia (though some are shared between each illness) as it relates to character and story development.
