About the Filmmaker

Filmmakers Nick Trumble & Max Thurlow both have a passion for telling unique and inspiring stories. Discovering an ad on Gumtree looking for fellow musicians to join Ed Hardy in a ‘Jam’ at the care home, Nick contacted carer Sam Kinsella and asked to make a film about the event. We filmed over two weekends, the second of which we helped create a garden tea party for the gig. It was not only enjoyable to film but also to see how it positively effected everyone else at the home.

    I’m teaching my son violin. I hope that when he is old, it will bring joy to his life. Perhaps he will remember me.

    I still meet with my old high school band members once a year for the past 50 years.

    Beautiful story. It reminds me of the idea that hearing is the last thing (sense) to go when a person is dying. Also that music can reduce anxiety among the critically ill. Somehow, somewhere in the recesses of the brain, music is able to cut through the tangle of cerebral nerves to allow a person to enjoy the universal benefits of this art form.

    How wonderful! Music is good medicine.

    Music has unlocked so many individuals with dementia that I believe it should be prescribed every time!

    A superb film! Such an important story to see… for someone who’s caring for a parent or spouse with Alzheimer’s, this story is a reminder to look for the activity that once brought great pleasure and see if you can reignite the spark. Music is one way. Maybe there are others? Gardening? Dancing? Having regular access to a dog or cat? What else?
