Lifesize create powerful short music film about mental health on ZoomUsing smartphones to capture glimpses of different inside and outside spaces during Covid restrictions in Autumn 2020, arts organisation Lifesize, led by Sam Dook (The Go! Team, CUZ) worked remotely with a group of young people. They accessed mental health services to create “Inside/Outside” a powerful short film and soundtrack.

The participants are from all over Sussex. They met weekly via Zoom, with two industry professionals, video artist Ollie Dook (RCA) and soundtrack composer Hutch Demouilpied (Limbo, The Levelling) joining the team.

Sam Dook said “Alongside playing in bands for many years I have been working as a community musician. Launching the first project through our new company Lifesize in 2019 was meant to be the start of a run of all kinds of community art projects. Then Covid 19 hit. Thanks to Arts Council England who gave our company a lifeline to develop ideas and new ways of working, we could regroup and try something ambitious.”
