topic icon DVD authoring & Duplication for Prison Reading Project for Shannon Trust

We were contacted recently by the Shannon Trust, a national charity supporting thousands of prisoners a year by helping to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading.

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, the trust have been unable to safely send volunteers into prisons to help those who are not literate to learn to read. So they are trialling a DVD box set, which when used with workbooks provided to the prisoners, can help them to achieve their reading goals.

To this end, they got in touch with us to help with the authoring and production the the 3x DVD box-sets. Simple uncluttered menus were essential to make it easier to read for those who are just learning, so we designed and delivered exactly what the client requested. These were then delivered to Mark electronically for the final disc builds. Stu designed a cover for the DVD box and also three simple, branded DVD on-body prints which were sent straight to the duplication house for printing.

Our contact at the Shannon Trust received the final discs today and e-mailed us to say "Thanks so much, they look great".
