Today we worked with Amy and her Carer to play out some scenes for the film featuring a character called Charlie – who was going into care. Amy was very professional about the way she performed and developed in confidence as the shoot went on.

The scene, which the group wrote, explored feelings around placements and how arriving at a placement to meet people you don’t know for the first time can be scary. The group had decided that arriving at a new place and new surroundings is a bit daunting and confusing so that was the way Amy acted the part.

When they arrived the carer welcomed them at the door. She had a very friendly face and a big smile. That was reassuring for Charlie but she was still a bit nervous.

They sat down in the front room and the social worker and Charlie listened to the Carer explain who she was and who lives in the house.

After that the social worker and Charlie took Charlie’s things, which were in plastic bags, up to the room she would be staying in.

The social worker and the carer went downstairs to sign some paperwork and discuss some things. Charlie started to feel the situation sink in and was a bit upset.Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 22.54.23
