Forget Me Not Hospice - Jacob's Story

Suzanne & Tom received amazing perinatal care when their son Jacob was born with a life-limiting condition. We helped to tell their story to show what a difference the hospice makes to families.

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions – plus their families. They help hundreds of wonderful children, and their equally wonderful families, through a Hospice at Home service and at their fantastic purpose-built building - Russell House in Huddersfield.

We decided to offer our filmmaking skills to create content that would help to raise awarenenss of the work of the hospice. We created a short film all about the perinatal care that Suzanne & Tom received through the pregnancy, birth and short life of their son Jacob.

Jacob’s story was shown to a room of around 100 people including families, local dignitaries, health care professionals and potential major donors during a launch event in 2019. The film now sits on the front page of the Forget Me Not Hospice website as a key piece of communication for anyone wanting to find out
more about the work of the organisation.





We love the moving image. In fact, we have a passion for it. Big or small screen and wherever your viewers watch, it is an irresistible opportunity to fill a space with colourful pictures and words, to make a statement and say something.

We have the knowledge and expertise to produce film, video, motion graphics and animation for all mediums: broadcast or non-broadcast television, events or commercial film. Whether it is internal or external communication, we can help you say what you need to say in a memorable way.

There is no point in making a program that nobody wants to watch. We want to make things interesting. Very interesting. We are Thunder and Lightning. The electrifying film company.
