Mark has been filming interviews with a family for a series of educational videos for the Somerset-based charity Stand Against Violence (SAV) . The videos will be used in workshops as part of a community education program to inform children about the harmful effects of legal highs, cannabis and other drugs that have a particularly risky outcome for susceptible young people.
We are using the interviews with members of a family, who have been torn apart by their son's psychosis caused by excessive drug taking, and mixing this with stock video to help dramatise the story and make it easier for young people to understand the impact this can have on themselves and thier family.
SAV was founded by Adam Fouracre in 2005 in the wake of the tragic murder of his brother Lloyd at the age of 17 and this is the second set of films we have been commisioned to produce for them. You can contact Adam Fouracre and the Stand Against Violence charity on this link.
