Liam’s Story is a film about a young man who tragically took his own life aged 19. The film was commissioned by Liam’s family and Family Futures to raise awareness about suicide and what we can do to prevent it.

I worked with Liam’s parents to edit a script from statements they’d both written in the wake of his death, which ultimately became the voiceover of the film. It was very important to me to include the actual voices of Liam’s parents as it is such a personal story.

An audio version of the film was played on BBC Radio 5Live as part of World Suicide Prevention Awareness Day 2020
