Three short films on media and physical perfection
False images(12 min.) The guarantee(11 min.) 34 x 25 x 36 (8 min.)

Wet dreams and false images: "Exposes the art of digital photo-retouching. How do images of perfect female beauty influence men's perceptions of real women? And, how we see ourselves?"

The guarantee: "Teasing, self-perception, cultural identity, and plastic surgery. How would changing our bodies to try to fit an image alter the way we see ourselves? -- Or even who we are?"

34 x 25 x 36: "A look at mannequins, religion and perfection. Enter the inner workings of the Patina V Mannequin Factory and see what goes into making 'the ideal woman of the moment' -- in plastic."

Bonus features, The barbershop three years later, Sex lies and photoshop New York Times Op-ed piece, story leads to action workshop with filmmaker.

In the barbershop, on paper and in the factory, this documentary looks at the "idealized" human shape and the manipulation of the image through various means of retouching, plastic surgery and mannequin production. ~Mike
