The Royal Academy of Dance contacted us to create an educational and inspiring documentary about its RADiate project, which helps children in London with Special Educational Needs, predominately those with autism, express themselves through dance. The film includes testimonials from teachers, pupils and Dame Darcey Bussell, with the aim of encouraging schools to sign up to the project, while showing how it has had a tremendously positive impact on the lives of those involved.
Mindful of RAD board members’ differing visions for the film, we created five individual documentaries for social media including Facebook, four around a minute long, and one main 15-minute film. The films were shot in a couple of months across different schools; some mainstream; some SEND, as we wanted to highlight the project’s diversity. RAD is delighted with videos, the full film received 24K views in one month on Facebook and the SEND-specific film 12K views.
