I was booked by Diabetes UK to produce a commercial film, a trailer and a series of documentary style photographs. They came to me because they wanted the natural candid feel that I often produce. They wanted a sense of fun to help promote their Type 1 events to the children and parents who have to endure type one diabetes on a daily basis.
I jumped at the chance because I felt that working with such a genuine and helpful charity is how I want my business to be seen. I always offer a generous discount to charities. This opportunity was to work a a large group of 8-10 year olds who all have type 1 diabetes and these events are designed to help the children learn to manage the diabetes on their own, and to continue to enjoy a normal, healthy and active lifestyle.
They attend without their parents and love every minute of it!
Shooting this film and producing the documentary is up there with the best commercial project I've been commissioned to do. The children were an inspiration and genuinely warmed my heart.
I'm currently at the proofing stage and won't be able to release the film until it has been finalised but rest assured, as soon as it is, I'll be sharing it here.
Maybe a sneak peak at one of the pictures...
