A dramatised illustration of events from the life of the legendary 18th century Methodist preacher, John Wesley.

The Wigan Girls
A video recording of a musical play, which Arts and Community in Thornbury (ACT) put on as a Community Production over 4 nights during July 2009. Around 500 people of all ages were involved in the production in Thornbury Leisure Centre.
There are two films - one is intended to make people understand the financial needs of the charity and how it can help those who receive services and the other is intended to introduce new potential users to the charity who might otherwise feel uncomfortable about walking through the door. The films were very well received and the audience felt that they captured the feel of the charity and the issues surrounding head injury very well.
Some of the additional interview footage is also being made available to the charity as case study material as the interviews brought out a number of additional points which could be helpful to those suffering from brain injuries and their families and carers.
We have been working with Headway (Bristol), the brain injury charity, to produce a couple of promotional DVDs to assist them with their fund raising activities and to give an insight to potential new service users of the work carried out there.
The videos have now been completed and were shown at their AGM and viewed by members of the charity and guests including various dignitaries from around the area.
