Donisthorpe Hall has long been a unique retirement home based in Leeds.
We wanted to capture the day-to-day life of the residents, their life experiences and the strong bond they made with the staff. And we wanted to convey that this is a place for adding to your life, not for slowly shutting it down. We summed up this spirit as ‘Life is for living’.
We also didn’t want to make a run-of-the-mill film, so to bring our thinking to life we worked with the talented director and portrait photographer Johnny Carr to create a strong visual look and feel.
