Students Create a Film About Bristol Children’s Hospital

Share this:

Media students from UC WISE have created a short film in support of Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Set on Christmas Eve, the creative film sees patients and staff prepare for a visit from Father Christmas.

Having been given a specific role, such as camera operator or sound assistant, the Media Production students produced, filmed and edited a series of short videos as part of their term project. The team spent time at Bristol Children’s Hospital and even The Gromit Unleashed Shop.

“Working on these media projects for The Grand Appeal has been a real honour. I was a patient at the Bristol Children’s Hospital my entire childhood and cannot thank them enough for allowing me to live the life I do. There is never a good enough way to thank the people, and place, that saves your life, but hopefully creating this content is a small thank you.”

Chloe Ball-Hopkins, Producer

Bristol Children’s Hospital cares for children 24/7, 365 days a year – even on Christmas Day. Having to spend the festive season far from home can be hard, but staff go the extra mile to bring sparkles and smiles to sick patients.

This film gives a small glimpse of the incredible things happening behind the doors of Bristol Children’s Hospital each and every day.

“Collaborating with UC WISE has been a great opportunity to highlight the amazing work of Bristol Children’s Hospital. We hope the students enjoyed their time and gained some valuable experience.”

Chloe Smith, Grand Appeal Communications Officer

We’d like to thank the incredible patients and staff who kindly let us film them and, of course, the students from UC WISE for dedicating their time to shining a light on our cause.

“It’s been a project that has allowed us as a student crew to work in a professional manner after years of being unable to work on such projects due to covid. We all thank you for the opportunity.”

Chloe Ball-Hopkins, Producer
