Islington council wanted to make a film that focuses on trauma in young children (4-8 years old). They wanted to train teachers and parents what exactly happens within a child’s brain, and what causes them to behave the way they do. This was a collaborative project within Islington Council, Islington Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and Islington trauma informed practices (iTIPs).
We worked together with Islington, CAMHS and iTIPS to come up with a plan. This was to be used not only in Islington but nationally as a training tool for teachers and parents. The team found a local school willing to be filmed, and permissions obtained. We created a storyboard outlining the narrative, created illustrations and title slides so key areas of the brain could be identified. We advised on ideal shooting locations, filmed at the school and identified children who would engage with the camera.
Following Islington brand guidelines, we then worked on post-production to create a cohesive film incorporating our illustrations and music to the final piece.
We would like to say a huge thank you for working with us on our short educational video. Your friendly, relaxed and totally professional approach was much appreciated. We also appreciated your guidance, advice and ideas, which made the whole project a really great experience! We look forward to working with you again.Jane Schofield, Health and Well Being Development Officer
