The final parts of the two part film that will be shown at the Summer Ball on the 19th has been recorded in London with the help of actor Hugo Speer, where his voiceover will tell the story of the charity so far, its foundation and the mission ahead.
Known to the charity and as a Yorkshire man born in Ripon and raised in Harrogate, both his voice and personal experiences with friends and family affected by Cancer are fitting.
The films include key interviews with the pioneering cancer Professor Justin Stebbing who treated Anna Verrico, plus interviews with representatives at the University of Sheffield who received a £15,000 scholarship award from Team Verrico last year.
Team Verrico has also filmed an interview with Debs McNaughton, a few hours before her trip to Belgium for cancer surgery, for which Team Verrico assisted with her campaign to raise the £30,000 of vital funding. Amongst other interviews, the film aims to raise awareness of Triple Negative Breast Cancer, a cornerstone of the charity’s constitution.
The filming has been achieved country wide with businesses pledging time, equipment and invaluable advice for the charity. Thanks go to Atmotion in London, Stage Engage, Exeter, Sheffield based freelancer Dan Mears, the University of Sheffield Film Society and a team from the Northern Film School.
Further thanks go to Jeff Wood for technical advice and networking to nationwide contacts and special thanks to Aideen Cassidy at DHL and the events and hotel staff at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London for specific assistance with the audio work with Mr. Speer.
We believe the awareness film will add a serious but extremely positive note to the evening on the 19th July, amongst all the fundraising activities, food & drink, glamour and entertainment.
