Dix is a darkly comic short film showing the complexities of psychological and obsessive-compulsive behaviour, featuring a man called Marc. Marc needs the paving stones on which he walks to move, for fear of stepping on the lines. In order to get over his phobia, he follows a treatment to confront the inner fears which lie behind his obsessive-compulsive disorder. The work is a mixture of live action and CG.
Dix is part of The Mill’s ongoing initiative to produce in-house short films and continuing commitment to develop talent within their growing animation team. In 2008, Dix has won the prestigious Jury Award at the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival.
It is a quite cult film and it might be the first time that OCD has been shown on screen in such a gory manner. However, it is indeed an inspiring and touching film for people suffering from OCD right now.
