Clare has led our latest project - My Autistic Big Brother & Me, a 1x40' documentary for BBC Wales in 2019. We worked with ITV's GMB corespondent Mikey Kay to reversion the film he shot over the last 3 years, which tells the heart warming and uplifting story of his severely autistic older brother and his families struggle to keep him from being sectioned and institutionalised. Discovering his brother has an extraordinary talent beyond autism, the film is also a journey into the epic mountains of Snowdonia.
