XLP continue to inspire the Contra team with their fantastic mentoring work across London. They approached us to produce a short documentary to tell Sephton’s Story: a young man with a history of gang violence and prison sentences who has managed turned his life around through involvement with the charity.
Our director spent time with Sephton before the shoot to get to know him and to fully understand his story. This allowed us to make the most of our one shoot day, grabbing a rich variety of visual content as well as a fascinating interview. The result is a powerful film for a powerful story. We are so grateful to Sephton for his brutal honesty and trust. The result is a film to inspire all of us to make the most of the opportunities life throws our way.
