IN THEIR EYES | A Silent Elephant Project

10th February 2021

IN THEIR EYES – A short film raising the awareness of Dementia.

“Dany, a stoic, hardworking single mum is forced to look after her mother living with dementia, but she fears what that entails.”

Collaborating with University students Dylan Price (University Of Manchester) and Sarah Atkinson (Manchester Metropolitan University), myself and the Freshrb crew developed the Silent Elephant Project short film In Their Eyes – raising awareness for Dementia.

Silent Elephant Project (SEP) short film - In Their Eyes

In Their Eyes was filmed in two locations, a private home in Prestwich, Manchester and at Heathlands Village – a purpose-built residential and nursing home, providing care within dementia-friendly surroundings.

Over a four day shoot, I captured interior dialogue in a residential kitchen and living room and in the Heathlands Village‘s reception and a resident’s private space.

Once all the dialogue had been captured, we then started the post-production stage. I began recording bespoke sound effects and foley for the film.

Recording sounds like:

  • A Car Engine and Seat Belt Clicks
  • Footsteps on Linoleum and Gravel
  • Kitchen Cutlery and Crockery
  • Mobile Phone Buzzing
