Introducing 'Their Story Your Choice' - a series of interactive films
Posted on: November 1 2018, 02:56 pm

Terrence Higgins Trust have recently launched the first in a series of interactive films (funded by Comic Relief and the MAC AIDS Fund).

The films aim to end HIV stigma and encourage testing in black African communities. At the end of each scene viewers will make choices for the characters as they navigate dilemmas such as:
• When is the right time to tell someone you have HIV?
• When should you get tested for HIV?
• What do you do when you find out your partner has HIV?
 
The first story about Mary and Thomas a couple in their 40’s focuses on the issues of late diagnosis and talking to partners about an HIV diagnosis.

We’ve called the series ‘Their Story, Your Choice’. You can find the link to the films on our website here.

To create the films, we engaged people living with HIV from black African communities throughout the process, using focus groups and via consultancy involvement of HIV activist Bakita Kasadha who is living with HIV. People not living with HIV were also asked for their views and thoughts.

I’m sure you will agree this is a really important project and will rely as much on people sharing amongst themselves as us promoting it on social media and in the press. So please help THT by sharing it amongst your client group and whoever you think will help spread the word.

They have created some trailers which you can share via social media with the link to the films.

You can find all three (between 10 and 26 seconds long) on WeTransfer here.

THT would also like to know how you think you may be able to use the films in your work as well as ideas on how to distribute them more widely. So please get in touch with George Halfin on FilmProject@tht.org.uk  about this.
