The Shoot – A group of therapists from Manchester University and the NHS Trust: Greater Manchester Mental Health (GMMH) approached BRICKOVEN in 2018 to co-produce and direct a series of psychotherapy training videos with leading therapists from the NHS /University of Manchester. The brief was to produce a series of training videos aimed to keep the attention of the Netflix generation. This gave us a bar for quality, it had to look and sound as if it belonged on the current pinnacle of TV streaming services. It also had to have all the necessary content to tick all of the boxes for the training and academic side of things.

We did this by working closely with the lead therapists to really understand the core concepts of what they were trying to teach and weave that into how we created the films from production through to the edit. The finished product was 4 separate films looking at different aspects of the therapy. Check out our blog on it here

Who is P.I.T? – The P.I.T team is a special interest group formed of Manchester University lecturers, NHS Therapists, and staff from Greater Manchester Mental Health. P.I.T is a type of psychological treatment that has been shown to help people with a range of different problems, such as depression, self-harm, relationship difficulties, personality disturbance, and functional (or so-called “medically unexplained”) symptoms.
