We can now share the fruits of the Taylor household lockdown. Tasked by Pharmaceutical innovator Novartis, via Havas Lynx in Manchester, Finn Taylor made a film about the extraordinary, sight-saving treatment, Luxturna. Using word-for-word the testimonial given by a young child and her family having received treatment during the Pandemic, and unable to travel, Finn turned a 1970’s Super 8 camera on his own family, creating a pool of intimate, real footage. When feasible with lifted restrictions, DOP Samuel White visited them in Dorset to bring the rest of the storyboard to life. The result is this heart-warming, powerful story of the totally life-altering scientific magic of being able to give a child their sight back.
