It is a video showing what Elaine’s life is like now she is out of institutional care and living within the Poole and Bournemouth community. It was the first time any of us had worked with someone with learning disabilities and made for an interesting and important learning experience.
Also we were pleased to be treated like a production company in our efforts, so as well as being paid for this production we also understood we needed to follow a client’s brief.
Although we all helped each other, our roles were roughly:
Director: Charlotte Gay
Editor: Alice Simons-Denville
Camera: Ben Tyrer
Sound: James Hibberd
For more information on Elaine’s life, I’ve written a small online feature about people with learning disabilities living in the community here.
