Link-Up & Feedback fight for better, safer and quicker treatment for people living with drug and alcohol problems in Cambridgeshire by consulting those who have experienced drug or alcohol related issues. This film was produced for Cambridge's first ever Recovery Conference in 2013.
"Toby filmed, produced and composed the music to a project for our group. Coming together with us to co-create an idea, he helped us bring it easily & beautifully to realization. With his knowledge, experience & presence he ensured that our film was the best it could be. He working with what could be considered a 'difficult' group of individuals to achieve a piece they were proud of and felt ownership over.
Any requests we had for different formats or edits were dealt with speedily and without fuss. The project was completed on time, on budget, without a hitch.
We have shown the film in several different forums and the effect is always the same - people are moved (sometimes to tears) and walk away with a much greater understanding of the individual and issues involved. Moreover, it was an empowering experience for members of a voiceless group to be given the chance to be heard. Overall a pleasure to work with." - Gem Blackburn.
