This was one of the more moving pieces to film. Being given access, during covid, to a working care home to see how people with severe learning disabilities were interacting with various Microsoft learning tools was a real privilege. It demanded the story be filmed in an honest, documentary, unstylized way.
Founded in 1799, SeeAbility is a charity that provides ambitious support for people with sight loss, learning disabilities and autism. The SeeAbility team recognised the need to ensure people were able to use digital tools to stay connected online. They built the Creating Connections Programme in partnership with Learning Disability England, with funding from the National Lottery Coronavirus Support Fund and support from Microsoft. We were asked to bring this amazing story to life!
