‘The Upside Down’ is a surreal look at the mental state of my family in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic. After just a few weeks in my 8 year old son William found it difficult to sleep alone, worrying that the world was going to end and without the daily routine of school, friends and fun my hormonal teenager became frustrated and angry at us all, missing his girlfriend, playing football and even ‘real’ school work. The sudden change in them both made me see their world in an entirely new light, a world which is portrayed in this series ‘The Upside Down’.
