couple more thesis concepts, though they need to be pushed
The abusive man’s problem with anger is almost the opposite of what is commonly believed. The reality is:
Your abusive partner doesn’t have a problem with HIS anger; he has a problem with YOUR anger.
One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you —as will happen to any abused woman from time to time —he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straightjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy."

I’m commenting just to add that I think this can be even more difficult to counteract with female abusers, because as far as I know they’re statistically less likely to be physically violent (obviously plenty still are)— there’s an element of socialized female interaction wherein women are punished for being openly hostile to one another, which means female abusers are likely to be more covert and subtle about their abuse. It’s harder to call them on it without looking or feeling crazy, because how can you prove that they’re being cruel when they’re hurling damage at you in the form of backhanded compliments or advice?
My intention isn’t at all to downplay the seriousness of male-on-female abuse. I suppose I’m just wary of things that use only male pronouns for the antagonist, as if women only have men to fear. There’s plenty to fear from each other as well, when it comes to emotional AND physical abuse, and it’s important to be able to recognize it for what it is. It took me years (lucky for me, only a few) but the scars still run pretty deep.

a couple of color concepts for my thesis film as I think harder about it
they both need some tweaking (and I’m sure it’ll be more than I think right now because the color calibration on these cintiqs is balls)
light and shadow are going to be a huge deal so I need to do a lot of studies to get the right look
