It is with huge pride that I introduce the first images to lickingthehoney.org. Gallop is a film I’ve been working on with shift.ms. Directed by the BAFTA nominated, definitely going places, Michael Pearce and produced by shift.ms and creative agency Mother London, it is not often such people collaborate to tell a story about Multiple Sclerosis. It is a rare thing also for a story to be used at all in the health/charity/MS arena. We have veered away from the territory of documentary and talking heads, to try to find a different truth.
Gallop explores one young man’s experience of diagnosis, and his difficulty in accepting the reality of his disease as well as the magic of falling in love.
I have advised on the development, writing, production and editing of the film, as well as the launch of the film which began in an event at The National Theatre in London on Friday.
The film is already up for Best Film at Rushes Soho Shorts and it’s been a pleasure to work on.
