EMILY'S STORY | MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

I directed, produced and edited four short films for Macmillan to promote their biggest ever Christmas appeal. The appal was based on Emily, who was diagnosed with cancer when she was only four years old, and received support from Macmillan nurse, Marie. The appeal has gone on to raise over 1 million pounds for the charity – their most successful Christmas appeal ever. A privilage to produce.

The film went down so well it was featured on the Guardian's website and Marie Claire’s online magazine.
