All you need is a camera, an internet connection and something to say.

Last year, 34% of young people voted YouTuber as their top career choice. Claire was intrigued. She decided to have a go. Part documentary, part live performance, part parody, part desperate as f*ck, Claire does everything she can to entertain her online audience. While remaining 100% totally authentically real.

Examining validation, confession and the cost of sharing, See-Through is an edited, unedited, live, pre-recorded, reality show that invites you to see behind the camera.
