"The more time I spend looking around me, and I mean really looking around me, the more people I see...with disordered eating." Shannon Sturgeon November 2010
After reading Shannon's blog on Tumblr I was silent. I didn't know who to tell, then I asked her if she would allow me to tell everyone her story, and the stories of others suffering with disordered eating.
"Perfection" is my first documentary, inspired by the true stories of Shannon Sturgeon, Stephanie Kane, and Colleen O'leary. I am still working on "sweetening" up some minor changes.
My mission is to create a broader view on eating disorders, including knowledge of those not otherwise specified (EDNOS) and break the stereotypes on the "look" of eating disorders.
