Read the It's Nice That article about the film here.

A film about an introvert and how his time alone makes him a better friend. In collaboration with Alain de Botton for The School of Life.

The Need To Be Alone is a new adventure into the world of live action puppeteering. All the puppets, props and sets were hand sewn out of felt, and the entire film was shot in my bedroom on a tight budget. Scroll down to see a 360 degree view of our setup!
