Client: Rethink Mental Illness

Awards: IVCA CLarion Award

To develop, produce and direct a series of interactive scenarios and films to help train Carers and Health Professionals in care and confidentiality when working with people who have metal illnesses.

THE PROCESS: I developed with with Rethink and health professionals a series of scenarios which were true to life as possible. Once scripted with the interactive training elements, I cast and developed a visceral and as true to life approach to engage the viewer in scenarios in a subject and objective way in which they might experience during their work. I worked extensively with the actors so they could understand the characters, their illness, job and responsibilities and sometimes difficult situations. Working with a small crew, a tight schedule and budget I created with the team a series of twelve powerful and engaging dramatic films and scenarios.

My work won an IVCA Clarion Award and received an across the board positive response from the viewers / users that they were true to life and engaged them in their training scenarios in a powerful way. The resource is now a certified resource used as part of NHS mental health training for NHS staff working in this area.

The clip is a from a series of 10 dramatic scenarios, below is a taster of how it works and some more scenes.
