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.
