Synopsis


Tom has always dreamt of being a successful actor, and now after years of disappointment he is finally presented with his golden opportunity … and an impossible decision to make.


Set against the backdrop of the 2017 #MeToo movement, Velvet explores the complex realities of harassment within the industry from a gay male perspective.


However, when most creatives are riding the wave of change, will Tom's opportunity slip through his fingers?
