Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board – Keith’s Story

The Brief
A resource film that outlines what hoarding disorder is and what is available to help people who need further information. The video will feature key interviews from members of the fire service, MIND, social workers, GPs, Clouds End CIC, Community Safety Partnership as well as Keith himself.

Creative Treatment
This project presented a logistical and visual challenge as there were no hoarding examples to film. Our creative team came up with a black box filming scenario using extreme close-ups of dust, boxes and clutter to offer a visual representation of the disorder.

The Outcome
The film was very well received and has been shared across NHS sites, the web and as part of a social campaign to raise awareness of the disorder.
