We have launched a Crowdfunding campaign for 'Mad World', a documentary on mental health. What questions do you have regarding mental health? Is there anything you want answers to?
With individuals affected by mental illness sharing their personal experiences and health professionals providing insight into some of the most complex conditions, the intention is to not only gain a better understanding of a subject that is so misunderstood but also to explore some of the more controversial views surrounding the topic.
We have already received support from leading mental health ambassadors and are lucky to have an incredible line-up of interviewees ready to share their experiences, who are every bit as passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental health as we are. Our interviewees include Jonny Benjamin MBE, Bryony Gordon and Rachel Kelly.
In 'Mad World' we will be using animation to tell a metaphorical story throughout the film. The theme of the animation could be described as almost “apocalyptic”, playing on an unnatural wasteland vibe. In this animated world, everything is covered in shadows and people’s inner minds are clearly visible in their heads, displayed like the cogs in a clock. See our campaign page for more information.
By pledging you are helping make the documentary, you will be a part of a film that will hopefully spread awareness for mental illness and help reduce the stigma that surrounds the subject.
