Believe you can Adopt! Our myth busting short film

This National Adoption Week we are pleased to launch our new Myth Busting Film to encourage people to talk to us about Adoption.

The short film is being released today and was filmed using members of Torquay based stage school, Razzamataz, owned by Jenny Isaac, to help local adoption charity Families for Children dispel some of the myths surrounding adoption.

Katey McDonald from the charity says, “We needed a way of getting our message across that there are many myths surrounding who can and can’t adopt and these misconceptions sometimes mean potential adopters are ruling themselves out before even making a call.

Using the children to create this wonderful film enables us to put pay to some of these myths in an unconventional way. They all did a great job!”

The filming was done over a morning during classes and the children donned oversized outfits and props for the occasion!

Jenny says, “Razzamataz were delighted to be invited to support Families for Children.  We are all very proud of the children who had great fun filming.  In fact, so much fun that our next term is going to include film work!  I hope that our participation helps Families for Children bust those myths.”
