YHA has been providing youth hostel accommodation in England and Wales since 1930. As a charitable organisation working with young people, safeguarding is a top priority. So they wanted to produce a drama film that would help their staff recognise the signs of abuse, neglect and bullying in the young people who use YHA.
Boxset Media have a long history of producing impactful drama films. We’ve worked with a variety of clients such as the rail industry and in education, so we were perfectly suited to approach this sensitive subject.
Our scriptwriting team worked closely with YHA to create a series of characters that accurately reflect those who stay at YHA locations. Filming took place in the beautiful Castleton hostel in Derbyshire and local youth acting groups were bought in to give an authentic feel to the film.
