The first challenge in this project was producing a script that, not only took an audience on an emotional rollercoaster and created sympathy for the lead character, but also giving NHS staff an effective educational resource. This meant working closely with the NHS and getting an firm understanding of the processes various staff undertake with dementia patients.
The second challenge was to produce a hectic shoot within a working hospital and finding extras to participate. To achieve this we brought in an Assistant Director, whom was responsible for the efficiency and smooth running of the shoot. For extras, we auditioned the staff within the NHS Trust. We had an amazing turnout of staff, eager to play a part. The role of our main character, Lucy, was carefully selected by Anthony (Director) in order to ensure, the role created the impact needed. Additional actors were brought in to play secondary roles, as these also required larger speaking parts.
