Barcroft Productions is looking for people dealing with rare disorders to feature in an international medical TV series for Discovery / TLC International.
The documentary covers a mixture of science, research and treatments set on the backdrop of the personal and emotional stories of people and families dealing with rare disorders.
The series is made up of ten episodes and each of them features five patients' stories, which range from 6 to 15 minutes in length. Many of the stories will follow the individuals through diagnosis, treatment and surgery. Others will show people in their daily lives, raising awareness about the condition and it's effects.
Here is a clip from their first series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZsTWW-ib8Y
Barcroft is looking for participants who are to undergo diagnosis, treatment or operation in January to February. Filming will take around three to seven days, covering any important medical events which occur during our schedule. The filming schedule will run until the end of February 2014.
Those interested in participating may e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, including a photograph and a short paragraph about yourself and your condition. Remember to mention our Ben's Friends community and its impact to you.
