INT. ANNIE’S HOUSE – DAY
ANNIE, 12, gently tucks her mother LUCY, 38, into bed. Annie
tiptoes out of the room, gently closing the door.
She walks into her bedroom and leans against the wall,
closing her eyes, EXHALING. Her eyes open. She’s in an
endless white space. Pencils and paintbrushes appear around
her; she LAUGHS, picks them up and begins to doodle.
Her art surrounds her. Beautiful, bright painted flowers and
plants erupt around Annie. Watercolour butterflies flutter in
the air, and painted animals frolic around Annie’s ankles.
Create uses the power of creative
arts to transform the lives of
vulnerable children, young carers
She paints a puppy. It BARKS and bounces into her arms,
licking her face. She GIGGLES. The dog’s ears perk up – it
swings it’s head and barks excitedly, jumping down from her
arms. Annie looks back at her brush. She paints a
multicoloured path that she and the puppy run along.
Equipping us with the confidence
and self-belief we need to take
control and shape our futures.
The camera pans out and other children appear, all heading in
the same direction. One boy plays the flute, musical notes
appearing and creating stepping stones for him to hop on, a
girl pirouettes near him, the ribbons of her shoes forming
her path to dance along. One girl writes, the letters shaping
into objects that she clambers across. Another boy takes
photos, each creating landscapes for him to walk through.
The various paths all lead to one point where they loop into
CREATE’s logo. Annie, the other children, young carers,
patients, disabled children and older people of all
backgrounds gather around it, surrounded by their creations,
holding hands, smiling.
Imagine, Make, Create.
