Gallop: A ground-breaking short film for MS

It is with huge pride that I introduce the first images to Gallop is a film I’ve been working on with Directed by the BAFTA nominated, definitely going places, Michael Pearce and produced by 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.

Please share.

    Beautiful movie… Helps when you have someone to love..
    My MS is mild, though I am beginning to know I have it. I’ve always been younger than my years and took personal pride in that. Looking back, I’ve had some signs throughout, though not diagnosed until age 63. Since my 50s, I had been slowing down, wondering how people did what they did and just continued doing my best, though it always seemed so limited. I watch the steps and am careful when I walk. But my biggest noticing is cognitive: saying wrong words, taking time to decipher words that I have always known.. Even comprehension … Sometimes, it even takes me time to figure out what a photograph is, when it turns out just to be a puppy.
    I think it influenced my marriage, always feeling inadequate, including in that dreaded area. I figured it was just our poor relationship and decided I did not want that anymore.
    And here I am now, at 68, feeling older than is usual in my family. Fortunately, having my brother to love, my children and others in my family. Having someone to love can make all the difference.
