BBC Doctors Mental Health Awareness Week

BBC Studios contacted Boxset Media and wanted us to shoot and edit a series of short films to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week.

Each film would feature a different actor or character from the daytime soap Doctors performing a poem or book extract around themes such as mental illness, anxiety or depression.

We had 3 days to shoot all 7 films, with only a few hours with each actor due to filming schedules of the show to work around!

The final 6 films were edited within a week and received tens of thousands of views across the BBC One and BBC Doctors social media channels.
