This short film was created during the first lockdown in 2020. It is a story of identity and hope.

Living through lockdown, Gem explores her anxieties and realises that she is not alone in questioning who she is.
As the first digital offering from N-Act, created with the help of a fantastic professional videographer, the company decided to create footage of how it was made. The aim of this film is to inspire pupils to be creative even in the difficult circumstances of lockdown! Includes practical advice for filming from home.
