Last October, I released the short documentary The Last Great Medical Cover Up to a widely receptive audience. Now, I am looking to alter and expand the film in time to promote Round 2 of the groundbreaking #MillionsMissing movement. And I need your help to make this new and improved version a reality.
Individuals living with ME are invited to send in short segments and/or photographs that they feel best depict the struggle of everyday life with the disease. For some, perhaps that’s getting out of bed, or standing up from the couch or a chair. Perhaps it’s eating or drinking, or brushing your hair or teeth. Maybe you’d like to send in a few seconds of someone filming you while you’re bedbound; what you choose to send is up to you, and what you feel best portrays life with ME.
Segments can be up to 3 minutes long, silent or narrated, and will feature at the end of the film. The short documentary will be edited into a trailer for wide distribution to promote #MillionsMissing and educate on life with ME. as well.
Material is welcomed from any and every country, in any and every language. They can be sent to [email protected] either directly, or through Dropbox or WeTransfer (both free tools), and should arrive no later than 20th August.
I am particularly interested in receiving material from male and child sufferers, who are often underrepresented in ME studies and film; if you know someone who fits this description, please pass the ask on.  However, I am overjoyed to receive film from any and all comers.

Thank you so much for your time — and for your story. By showing the world what ME looks like, we put a human face on the disease. We show the human cost in lack of funding, poor medical education for clinicians, and low-quality studies that continue to dog ME. Your contribution can make a real difference!

    1. It appears that the YouTube channel no longer exists. Perhaps we can find another link? I’ve asked L.A. on Facebook. 🙂

      1. Hi all,

        The film has been taken down already to prepare for edits. Very exciting!
        But yes, my videographer has it at the moment for tweaks.
