A TV production company is hoping to make a short film for BBC Three that tackles the emerging issue of cyber self-harm. We want to understand why people start trolling themselves on social media, like Ask.fm and Tumblr. We want to explore what drives someone to write abusive posts about themselves and how it makes them feel seeing these posts written by ‘other people’. This is a very real problem which affects young men and women across the country but very little is known about it. We want to change that. We want to talk to anyone who has struggled with these issues and who might be interested in being involved in this short film. If you would like to be involved in this project, this can be done either confidentially or not and can be about your own personal experiences of cyber self harm or other examples that you have come across.
If you would like to be involved, or would like more information about this short film, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
