Superheroes in lockdown was produced during Melbourne’s restrictive and prolonged 112-day COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. The subjects are serious cosplayers who would usually spend their days visiting patients in hospitals or attending Comic-Con events, but just like the rest of the Melbournian population, they were confined to their homes.

The series presents the extreme and absurd contrast between these extraordinary subjects and the mundane reality of lockdown isolation that we all experienced.
