Feature Filming at T Potts (May 2002)

Extract from 'The Ring' - April Newsletter of MacIntyre Care.

MacIntyre Care are involved in a new full-length feature film called Cloud Cuckoo Land.  It's a very exciting venture which we hope will be a dramatic success.  Some of our service users are acting and others are involved in the catering - MacIntyre are responsible for providing all the on-set meals!

The involvement began with a session of screen testing, followed by some very successful filming.

The story line follows a man called Sandy, and his passion for aircraft and aviation, inspired by his grandfather.  His life takes a tragic turn, and he can no longer fulfill his dreams of flying.  To tell you any more would spoil it!  Look forward to the MacIntyre premiere!

Matt Dickinson, the film's Director, was very pleased with our contribution, 'The participation of the MacIntyre team was superb.  We simply could not have completed our filming schedule without the enthusiastic help of everyone who came to join us.'

The film is a production of Airborne Productions plc.  For investors or general  information visit  and follow the link 'Airborne'.  Matt Dickinson is the Director and Chris Bradley the Producer.

MacIntyre Care

MacIntyre Care is a national charity for people with learning disabilities.

Many of the people working at our local projects also live in houses run by MacIntyre Care.  Some also live at home or in other residential accommodation.

The enterprises that we run provide opportunities for the people that use its services to learn a wide variety of skills.  The range of projects gives scope to move on from a very sheltered environment of one that may lead to paid employment.
