Stuart Robinson is a British Royal Air Force veteran who served four tours of Afghanistan before being injured by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in 2013.
1440 was commissioned to produce a film that documented Stuart’s life and training – showing the impact of his final tour and how he went on to win gold as part of the winning wheelchair rugby team at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
We brought Director and Filmmaker Liam Saint-Pierre into our team alongside Alfred Thirolle as Director of Photography. Over eight weeks, we travelled with Stuart around the country to document his rugby training and his military connections. We captured him training with Team GB as well as visiting some of his old squadron at RAF Northolt. We were also invited to spend days at home with him and his family, and joined Stuart and his wife to watch a full military parade in the heart of London. The film Still Alive has been entered in multiple European film festivals. We are proud to have come up with the idea to shoot it and put together the team to deliver it.
