To kick off our new theme Exposed, Chandler Kilgore-Parshall shared with us the final episode of his web series Reverse Psychology in which an inept psychologist, at risk of losing his practice, exploits his patients’ stories for personal fame.
“The ideas of reinvention and exposure appeal to me as a writer because you can flesh out what a character wants to be perceived as versus who they truly are, almost like two characters for the price of one. It’s the Yin and Yang of the human condition.
With Reverse Psychology, I love exploring Dr. Xanderhoot’s need to be recognized as successful and personable enough to get his own TV show. Ironically, it is during therapy sessions where his clients are supposed to open up to him. Throughout the series, we slowly unravel Xanderhoot’s insecurities and why he wants a new start. Either you like him or dislike him, but you’ll understand why Xanderhoot is the way he is.”
