LGBTQ+ charity akt’s Virtual Pride festival & Campaign film ‘We Are Family’

Community June 1, 2021

We’re proud to share our campaign film for LGBTQ+ charity akt, (The Albert Kennedy Trust).

Over the coming weeks we’ll be sharing some of the great free online resources akt provide as well as workshops, creative sessions & insights from this year’s akt virtual pride festival.

akt believes that no young person should have to choose between a safe home and being who they are. They support LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 in the UK who are facing or experiencing homelessness, or living in a hostile environment.

The campaign film, entitled ‘We Are Family’, was concepted and directed by The Mill’s Alfie Johnson, with Composition & Sound Design by Harry Linden Johnson, and Colour by Seamus O’Kane. Check out the BTS below where Alfie talks us through how the film was created.
