This documentary mini-series was created and published during the initial isolation period of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK. It reveals the experiences of many individuals at this time, as the unexpected is faced together.

Myself and my good friend Rhian were keen to use our time in lockdown to work on a creative project together. After a number of phone calls back and forth, we eventually came up with the idea of co-producing a documentary mini-series…remotely. We recognised just how upsetting the news could be at this time and so wanted to counter this to some degree without taking away from genuine, real-life experiences.
It was a difficult time period for me personally and I did struggle to motivative myself to edit each of the episodes as we went along. Because there was no clear end of when the lockdown period was to finish, the second and third episodes were not pre-planned. I have to say that this project had its many challenges with it being orchestrated remotely but was so rewarding as I felt we achieved our goal of creating something that gave us all some kind of purpose and hope.
