Issue Summary

A short summary of the issue the documentary is addressing

Isolation tells the story of the world in crisis. As individuals, families, communities and nations face an shared enemy and an uncertain future, together.

The global healthcare system is failing. Mental health is rapidly declining, and we are watching nations at breaking point as those at greatest risk fall through the cracks into illness, poverty and homelessness.

Home Isolation is a privilege not all can afford. Nature is fighting back.
Humanity is in survival mode, every country fighting their own private battle with the virus.

As a species, we are struggling, and need to change.

We need to help each other, country for country, to come out of this together.

" The greatest threat we face now is not the virus itself.
We can not defeat this pandemic as a divided world. "
-Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General, WHO


What is the impact vision statement of the documentary?

Isolation gives us an insight into how each of us has been impacted by this pandemic.

This time capsule of life in isolation will reflect how people cope or don't cope. How we treat others, how society treats us and what needs to change on order to survive and thrive. There is no going back.

The production also supports female filmmakers worldwide by inviting them to shoot for the film, providing financial support during the pandemic.


What outcomes does the project hope to achieve from making this documentary?

To provide an opportunity for people to share their life in isolation and to create a snapshot of the world in crisis, from the people's perspective.

Sharing this snapshot from every corner of the globe gives us all a unique opportunity to see past our differences and to see our similarities and to realise the only way to survive this pandemic is by working together, looking after each other on an individual, national and international level.

The failings of our global healthcare systems and various forms of governments will become apparent. There will be nowhere to hide. Change is inevitable. This documenter will make it very clear.


How will this documentary achieve its outcomes?

Isolation will shine a light on the impact of the pandemic on everyday people from all around the world. It will create awareness that it is a global humanitarian crisis.

We will create a worldwide snapshot of the impacts of the pandemic on a global community. This will unite voices from all over the globe to create a global conversation to demand change.

A global conversation will create change - small actions taken by individuals, to bigger actions taken by government and nations.

No one will be able to succeed by going it alone. We will have to come together, united as one, bringing down borders and setting aside political differences in order to survive.

We also will provide some well needed financial support for female filmmakers worldwide who are in countries with no support during this pandemic.


How will partnerships with this project help inform the project development?

Currently in conversation with mental health/ drug companies about the mental health aspect of the pandemic.

Currently commissioning female filmmakers around the world to shoot stories for the film.

Teaming up with mental health and social change advocacy groups.

Reaching out to people who have been touched by suicide in this pandemic.

Audience Engagement and Social Impact

What actions does this project hope for its viewers after seeing this film?

We hope people will feel seen and heard. We hope viewers will relate and feel empowered to start their own conversations and take action in their own families, communities and countries.

We hope people will realise we are all in this together.

We hope people will understand this could be a once-in-a-lifetime event that could change our world forever and that we all have a role to play in the outcome, no matter who we are or where we are.

That people will make change in their own lives- whether that be on a simple day to day level, all the way to being in a position in power to make change on a global level. To look after our world, its environment, and our global citizens. That we re-evaluate what's important in life.

Measurement and Evaluation

What is the projects indicators for success?

People from all over the world would have shared their story. We will have created a snapshot of life in isolation that will be a catalyst for change.

By the end of production we will have supported female filmmakers worldwide who have participated in the film.

The impact of the film will come later. We need to be at the end of the pandemic, to see how far we have come. People will only be able to reflect when they have had sufficient time away from the pandemic- so it will be retrospective. Change takes time.
