Transform Trauma Super Hero Video

Sunday Mirror Article

Here at Ginger Beard we are very proud to say that our work has been mentioned in the Sunday Mirror, supporting Barts Charity. We have created the first ever animated wheelchair superhero! The charity have recently announced a Trauma campaign named ‘Transform Trauma’  which aims to help save the lives of thousands of people who suffer trauma in the UK, and improve the quality of life for the survivors. We really wanted to get involve with this and produce them with an animated video that all generations can relate to, helping raise the 1 million they need to make a difference! The video focuses on Marcus Perrineau-Daley, 28 years old, who shocked medics who didn’t think we would survive after coming off his motorbike. Against all odds he pulled through and since then has become a personal trainer. Marcus noticed that there was no superheros or characters that reflect what it’s like to be in a wheelchair and the reality of real life, so he wanted to make a difference to this, he wanted to create a character that represents people that are either paralysed or injured but still want to do amazing things with their life.

What is Transform Trauma?

It is an appeal run by Barts Charity, their main aim is to raise funds to help continue research for Trauma Sciences, such as spinal cord damage. Barts Charity has helped to double survival rates among the most critically injured patients. However, every hour in the UK, two people die from a trauma injury, the Transform Trauma appeal is here to help change this. Trauma is one of the biggest causes of death and disability in the UK, yet less than 1% of medical research funding is spent in this area. Their mission is to raise £1 million to save the lives of thousands of people who suffer trauma, raise the percentage number and improve the quality of life for survivors.
