a film about the people of sheffield pulling together

Social Distancing makes the heart grow fonder

These are bizarre and scary times. Just a few weeks ago people were going about their day to day lives as normal. Now it feels like we are all shut away from each other. The purpose is to delay the spread of the coronavirus and it is a valid one - but it is still making life hard.


However, I have already seen some amazing community stories coming out of Sheffield. Like companies doing home deliveries, people doing shopping for the older in society and of course the amazing work of the NHS staff.  When the chips are down it seems people in Sheffield pull together and really help each other out.


As a video production company, we have felt helpless in providing the wider Sheffield community with something positive in these testing times. We want to change that. We want to show what great stories you have. We want to create a short film about the amazing people of Sheffield pulling together.


If you are self isolating or have seen or done an unusual thing to help your community then we want to hear from you.



Please record a short (up to 30 second) clip of yourself telling the story from your point of view. This can be on your phone or whatever camera you have. Once recorded please upload your video using this link - UPLOAD




If we receive enough content, we plan to cut together a short film which we hope to release in the next couple of weeks to show what Sheffielders are made of!


(By uploading your video you agree that we can use it as part of the film that will be release online)


Stay safe. We can't wait to see your stories and to release the film!
