Gemma’s Story

Glasgow Caledonian University


Glasgow Caledonian University research exposed the horror of being a victim of domestic abuse and stalking – and how our justice system is failing women.

We condensed the key findings into a powerful animation for awareness-raising and training. Words of real women’s testimonies in the soundtrack. Evocative hand-drawn animation on screen.

The 4-minute video reached over 15,000 on social media at the launch. Public comments included “Super powerful.” “So poignant” “Beautifully done!” “Honest and painful story of so many women.” “More people will now understand. We need change and this will help!”


We were so chuffed when this film was selected as a finalist Best Charity Film in the prestigious Third Sector Awards, against fierce competition films from right across the UK.
