Production :


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.

At MEDIA19 we’re good at making films that tell stories about real people; their lives, their experiences, their challenges, hopes, dreams and aspirations.

What story do you need to tell?



We produce films for charities and public sector organisations across the UK about their services, aims and objectives and the stories of the people they work with.

We also develop engagement projects using digital video and photography to involve people and communities to connect them with decision making and developing ideas for change.

We produce video to tight budgets and tight deadlines with a creative approach and experience of working and filming with people from many different and diverse backgrounds; from young parents to patients and artists to accountants.

Community Independence Service

Dignity in Care

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.

Dementia: Knowing the person

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.

Matthew’s Story

A short film produced as part of a range of films commissioned by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIEwww.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

Dementia – Memories & Culture

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.

Find Me Good Care

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.


NICE – Looked-After Young People

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.


Fish Pass – Darley Abbey

Film produced by Media19 for The Trent Rivers Trust about the design, development, construction and installation of the fish pass at Darley Abbey. The Larinier fish pass enables a diverse range of fish species to move upstream to find suitable river habitat for feeding and spawning. The design and construction of the fish pass was a complex process taking into account many environmental issues with the core aim of improving fish passage and the river habitats upstream of the existing weir at Darley Abbey. The design and construction also had to ensure the heritage value of the weir and the surrounding area was not adversely affected. Darley Abbey weir forms part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Site along with many other important historic mills and weirs along the river.

The fish pass was built using a grant provided by Defra under the Catchment Restoration Fund. It was designed by FISHTEK Ltd in Totnes and completed in partnership and with support from the Environment Agency, Derby City Council and Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
