Mother has created a second short film for web-based charity Shift.ms. The film, ‘Belong’, dramatises the early stages of learning to live with multiple sclerosis (MS). It follows on from the short film ‘Gallop’ that was released earlier this year portraying the emotional journey of someone coming to grips with the early stages of diagnosis of MS through the prism of a love affair.
‘Belong’ features Dave and Karen, the characters from ‘Gallop’, in conversation with others with MS exploring how different people cope with the illness. The film takes place in a pub where an MS support group chat about how being diagnosed with MS has changed their lives and how they’re living with the condition.
The film was shot in 360 degrees so that the viewer feels part of the conversation, and it is displayed on the Shift.ms website surrounded by web links. As the film plays and different topics are broached, links on the Shift.ms website to those topic areas become active. Viewers clicking on these will find further insights into the subject and have the chance to participate in real conversations that are happening in the Shift.ms forums about that particular issue.
The film can be viewed, from today on theShift.ms website: http://shift.ms/belong/
