Following the success of the animations Northern Media created for the North Lincolnshire Council Local Offer in 2016, we have again teamed up with them to produce a video regarding the Personal Budget.
The Local Offer helps people find out about the services and support available to children and young people with special education needs or disabilities. After completing a series of animations last year using the children who used the service’s voices, the final video of the project was completed this month.
The focus of the final film was to outline how the Personal Budget, as part of the Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan provided by North Lincolnshire Council Local offer, has supported Jack Marshall in terms of education and his day to day life.
Jack has Moebius syndrome. Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological disorder which means he is unable to walk unassisted, has difficulty with hearing and sight, and is unable to smile. However, this hasn’t stopped Jack from achieving a range of amazing accomplishments including skydiving, completing the Great Ethiopian Run, climbing Mount Snowdon and being acknowledged for his charitable achievements by Prime Minister Theresa May.
Both Northern Media and North Lincolnshire Council wanted the video to show how beneficial the Local Offer can be on the quality of life of the individuals it supports. Therefore, once the storyboard was agreed, Northern Media filmed Jack and the people who support him over the course of 2 days, capturing him at home, at college, down at the gym and playing powerchair football. Once final editing was agreed, the video was used at the Annual SEND Conference on June 28th 2017 (http://www.servicesforeducation.org.uk/Event/50487).
Julie Frost, Education Inclusion Lead Officer (SEND) at North Lincolnshire Council, spoke of the project, saying:
“We have worked with Northern Media on this project for 12 months now and the outcome has been fantastic. The original animations were creative and original and the recent video of Jack has been . They managed the project from start to finish and this culminated with us showing the video at the SEND Conference, where it received some amazing comments from the delegates. We look forward to working with Northern Media in the near future.”
