FILM

Working with Derby QUAD and the filmmaker Doug Smith, Matt has been looking at film as an alternative and complementary medium to music, to provide a new way of reaching people, particularly men, with Mental Health needs.

It's the kind of idea that started this whole charabanc going. Stepping down off stage a few years ago the band got approached by a few men from the audience who were reacting to the new song that the band had just performed. "Frock and Bonnet" is a Rock 'n' Roll song about seeing a psychiatrist for the first time and was a good conversation starter for a difficult subject.

The short film will be based around one of the songs from the show and will be released to coincide with the main theatre tour.
