I was approached by George Sander-Jackson to direct and animate a filmed about post-natal depression. We interviewed a young lady called Katie and edited her story down to a 3:20 minute short film. Five films were made by five different directors, all with the aim to explain PND and how it effects parents lives. And to help remove any stigma attached to the illness. We want to help encourage medical professionals to address their current approach to people with PND and make sure that the right care is out there for parents.
These films will soon feature on the NHS Choice website. I can't link to the film until they have been published online, so here is a clip from my film 'Katie's Story'.
This series of films have been nominated for a British Animation Award 2016.
