We had a last minute change of plan to the shooting schedule and yesterday filmed a wonderful interview with Pippa, whose sister has early onset dementia. Her love for her sister and her enthusiasm for SPECAL and what it has given her and Louise shines through in the footage and we are thrilled with the result.

We will post clips and stills as soon as we can. NB** As we are now in production and haven’t yet reached our target budget, please can I ask everyone to check their lottery numbers and behind the sofa cushions for any spare money and please pledge now… 😉

…to start filming at the weekend, but had to delay. It is so difficult for those who are still coping with caring for a sufferer, trying to keep working and be faced with the prospect of talking about it on camera, so finding days to fit in a film crew too is proving to be a challenge!

So, we’re putting together a new schedule – watch this space…

We’re nearly there. But we really do need to try and raise the final amount – we’re about £3,700 short of our budget (updated 29/06/10). Filming starts next weekend with the first of our ‘stories’… Watch this space and if you haven’t pledged yet, please, please do!

Down to Lymington today, to meet a father and daughter whose wife/mother has dementia.

It becomes difficult is to choose which stories we can tell in this first programme. You see, the amount we raise will directly dictate how many days we can hire a crew to film this with the associated costs like travel, insurance, kit hire etc. This programme; its strength, will be in the relating of a range of stories through conversation. The only way these conversations will be true and natural (and, importantly, make the audience know that we understand  what they are going through) is if they are told from the heart with no repetition. To do this, and to give us the ‘edit’ points we need requires two cameras for each interview.

So we hope you understand WHY we are asking for the minimum budget. It’s not to spend on bells and whistles, or expensive lunches (NB – Darling crews – we will feed you! Is cheese and pickle ok?) . It’s so we can tell a wide range of stories and give them maximum effect.

The BEST news of the day was a £1000 pledge to the fund. Thank you. So much.

Ps -Derek and Alex –  we’ll also buy some crisps…. What flavour?
