The children's Society - MAKE RUNAWAYS SAFE Campaign Short Film
A campaign film commissioned by The Children's Society to highlight the problem of runaway children across the UK.
We wrote a script which told the story of a young runaway who was at risk of sexual exploitation, alcohol abuse and sleeping on the streets. We then started casting the film and scouting London for locations. After narrowly avoiding the riots in London (we were shooting in Peckham), the film was shot over two sunny days in August 2011. The film became an important part of the Runaways campaign and was received as a powerful piece of filmmaking.
