British Red Cross
The British Red Cross commissioned us to make a film as part of its Withstanding Weather campaign, to help people deal with emergencies.
We interviewed Emily, a young person from Ballater, Scotland, who faced severe flooding in 2015.
In this film, she talks about how she coped with the floods, leading to both her and her family’s recovery. It is a powerful story of Emily’s emotional journey – and how lasting positive influences in her life including her family, friends and love of drama and sport, helped her deal with the distress of the flood itself.
The film was shot over two days in Ballater and captured Emily in different settings – performing on stage, running outdoors, swimming in the local pool and at home. This creates visual variety as well as giving us an insight into Emily’s life and personal experiences.
