Type 1 in the City

A group of HND Film & TV students have recently completed a promotional video for Diabetes Scotland, focusing on an event called “Type 1 in the City”, held in Edinburgh.  Robyn Begg, Rebecca Prinn and Duncan Formosa were tasked to produce a short promotional video covering the event. Duncan said:

“On the 14th of November I went to Edinburgh to film an event called “Type 1 in the City.” The event was set up for young people with type 1 diabetes to talk to about their condition to other teenagers, as that’s one thing that many young people with type 1 wanted as they felt it would help them in terms of confidence.”

“The event lasted 7 hours and had many different workshops such as samba drumming, hip-hop dancing, etc. It was a really interesting event to film, especially being the only non-diabetic there, as for once I felt out of place while the other diabetics felt (and I quote) “Normal.”

“The brief was to create an upbeat edit to summarise the whole day and to encourage other young people to attend these types of events (Type 1 in the City was the first event for young diabetics) and to hopefully help get funding for other events like these.”
