Samaritans Emotional Health Awareness Film - Hope
The Brief

Samaritans wanted a film that introduces the concepts of emotional health to young people that'll be shown in schools throughout the UK.

What We Delivered

We spoke to lots of young people about their experiences and how they felt during difficult times. From this research we wrote a poem in a spoken word style, ensuring the story was personal and emotionally engaging to young people. We wanted the visuals for this film to be striking to engage a young audience, we decided to use projections to visually convey inner emotions.

We also created a drama 'Building Resilience' for this project and a trailer of both of the films for Samaritans website and social media.

"They was in constant communication with us and ensured that we were happy with every stage of the production. Their professionalism and working to time frames was great.

The final films are of very high quality, meet the briefs and have had an amazingly positive response from the targeted audience. They are powerful and thought provoking.

I was hugely impressed by their consultations with young people and willingness to listen and take on board new ideas and perspectives.

The films will bring a new stimulus to our teaching lessons and will really help young people talk about difficult issues. The feedback from them has been hugely positive!"
