We’d thought we’d put together a short film that shows some of the people we’ve filmed with and the sort of stories, experiences, issues and concerns we’ve covered.
The film includes people in care, those with learning disabilities living independently, delivering healthcare and excerpts from our films on dementia. It also includes contributions from young people we’ve worked with who have experience of being homeless or being a teenage parent with some of the footage being shot by themselves using FLIP cameras and mobile phones. We’d like to thank them all for their contributions and for allowing cameras to film part of their life and tell their story.
We hope you enjoy it and that we may be able to produce something similar for you.
Short film about the Community Independence Service in Hammersmith and Fulham enabling people to receive medical treatment and support at home whenever possible, rather than go into hospital unnecessarily.
Our four latest films for SCIE about ensuring that people retain their independence and dignity through the care and support they receive.
Different stories, different people and different experiences. How we can all make life better for people who use services and want to live as independent a life as possible. Practical examples, experiences of carers and care staff, good practice and great people.
November saw our Social Care TV film “Getting to know the person with dementia” win its category (Best factual new media) at the Older People Media Awards 2013 (Twitter hashtag #opma2013). Produced by Media19 for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), the entry was up against strong competition. Gavin and Stacey/ Eastenders star Larry Lamb handed the award to three of the film’s contributors; Ian, Harry and Roy; along with Lynda Hughes, Forget Me Not Centre and Swindon Later Life Therapy Team Manager. They were delighted with the victory and SCIE’s Chair Lord Michael Bichard has sent his congratulations to the contributors. Other categories saw awards and nominations go to high-profile media outlets such as Panorama, the Guardian and the Times.
A short film commissioned by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) that tells the stories and experiences of six people from the Forget-me-Not group in Swindon who have all been diagnosed with Dementia; Ian, Stan, Jude, Roy, Harry and Derek. The film is revealing, personal, emotional and humorous allowing each of them to tell their side of the story; how they felt when diagnosed, the impacts, how they have coped, being positive and building on the things they can do, rather than the things they can’t. They also talk about the importance of getting to know them as a person, rather than as a person with dementia; who they are and what they have done in their lives and, significantly, what they are doing now. The film is a revealing, engaging and insightful glimpse into their personal character and the life they lead.
A short film produced as part of a range of films commissioned by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) www.findmegoodcare.co.uk looking at what are the ideals that make up good care and support for when we need it, either through older age, disability or a personal crisis. (See the Find Me Good Care film)
Using a personal budget has enabled Matthew to lead a more independent and fulfilling life. In this short film, we see Matthew at home and at work and hear how he values the life he now has. We also hear from his mum, Kathleen who has been instrumental in making the best use of a personal budget to meet Matthew’s needs, aspirations and ideas for the future
A film produced for Social Care Institute for Excellence about the importance of memories for people with dementia and how they can help connect people to their lives and experiences and aid communication. The film was made with people from the West Indian Senior Citizens Project in Leicester and reveals the importance of connecting with and understanding people’s backgrounds and cultures as part of memory and reminiscence.
A film produced for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) that looks at the different options we have to find good care and support as part of the Find Me Good Care website.
Find Me Good Care helps people to make choices about care and support for themselves or other adults in England. Looking for care is confusing. Understanding the options available can be overwhelming. Find Me Good Care can help you to think about what you really want out of care and support before you start looking for particular services.
The website combines advice and information about choosing care with a comparable database of services. And it allows you to create your own Good Care Planner online so that you can save all the information that you find most useful in one place.
Media19 were commissioned by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) to produce a short film outlining their new quality standard for looked-after children and young people. This standard, featuring 8 statements, sets out what young people in care should expect as a minimum to enable them to fulfill their ambitions and reach their full potential.
Sir Andrew Dillon, Chief Executive of NICE was very impressed by the video and the contributions of the young people who took part. They all developed their own words and thoughts based on their experiences of being a looked-after young person in response to the NICE statements through a number of workshops led by Media19.
Our thanks go to the participation team at North Tyneside Council and all the young people that took part. And to TJ (pictured below), who came up north to film the introduction sequence. Many thanks to her, too.
