Orpheus Outreach Documentary

Client
Orpheus Centre
 

Overview:

The Orpheus Centre is a specialised college and charity supporting young disabled adults in their transition to independent living, helping students gain confidence through performing arts. As part of their work the Orpheus tutors and students go into different communities to run intense song-weeks with various groups. Our documentary captures one of these outreach projects with the students from Kings College in Guildford.

Working with See Change Films was fantastic from start to finish. They were really good at listening to what we wanted, and also coming up with ideas that would capture our aims and objectives. We’re a small charity in a tiny little village in Surrey - this film will help us to shout a bit louder amongst others.”
-Selina Bartlett, Community Fundraising Manager

Aims:

The Orpheus Centre commissioned See Change Films to produce an inspiring documentary to showcase one of their outreach weeks. The film captures the Orpheus students working together with Kings College students to produce an ensemble of original songs over the course of 5 days. The Orpheus Centre wanted to capture the unique benefits of the week for all the students, including the creative potential of every individual, what can be achieved in a short space of time and provide a platform for people with disabilities and young carers to share their views through song. 

Impact:

  •  The film is being used as a marketing tool to highlight the important work of The Orpheus Centre to new and existing donors.
  • It is being shared among different community groups, organisations and corporates.
  •  It is screened as part of special performances provided by The Orpheus Centre to large organisations.

“SCF team was really good at interacting with our students and adapting their approach - we were dealing with quite sensitive subjects, such as anti-bullying and people’s experiences of being a carer.”
