MacMillan Cancer Support
description for work page only
Zest were approached by Jtopia Productions and MacMillan to spend a day filming this short documentary film in Leicester, with director James Smith. Emily was diagnosed with leukemia in 2012 and this piece details her story, and the support that she and her family receive from MacMillan nurse Marie. The video formed an integral part of MacMillan’s ‘Greatest Gift’ Christmas appeal, which went on to raise over £1,000,000 for the charity – their most successful Christmas appeal ever.

Zest has a wealth of experience in the charity sector and its team are accustomed to handling sensitive subjects. The conscientious crew was able to put the family at ease, helping to create a moving and emotive piece.
