Just completed an interesting low budget project for a charity that's developing a rehabilitation program for men who have substance use issues and have committed intimate partner violence. The program has been proven to literally save lives, which is not something I can often say about my job, so this one was pretty special.
We reenacted two of the organisation's group therapy sessions with actors in place of real service users. I created their characters and worked with the actors individually to develop them and then the group improvised their performances over the course of a two day shoot. The films ended up being over two and a half hours worth of deliverables which will be viewed all over the world by other clinicians who are recreating this groundbreaking program.
Quite an experience. Here’s a little taster of it.
