Our Secret World
The Children's Fund
"Our Secret World", a 22 minute drama, was commissioned by The Children's Fund to raise awareness of the issues of domestic abuse and specifically the impact it can have on children. The film needed to show how domestic abuse can build over time and in particularly the ongoing impact emotional abuse can have on children, affecting their schooling, friendships and self esteem.
Working closely with The Children's Fund we were able to meet families who had lived through domestic abuse. This allowed us to create a powerful drama based on real life experiences. The film was written and directed by Moon Watcher's Colin Skevington.
"Our Secret World" has been used to raise awareness amongst teachers, social workers, the police and anyone who works with children. It is currently being developed into a full resource for release later this year.
