I was Director of Photography, editor and Music composition for this film. After a month of filming with an all star cast and crew, it took 3 months to edit and finalize the piece before we had a cinema debut, one of the last to be held in Manchester’s iconic Corner House, to an audience of family, friends, professionals and veterans. The event was very successful with a variety of interest here and over seas in the USA. Since, our work has won several awards, been used in training to tackle the awareness and understanding of PTSD and has ongoing use in several campaigns across the globe to help people.

Here are examples of the music composed:
