Comments on A Day in the Life of Eddie

  1. This film is brilliant - a deserved winner of the FL Award 2009 for Best Animation


  2. In such a simple way it gets across the emptiness and loneliness that M.E brings. The lack of help and support. The sadness of so many lost childhoods. Well Done!


  3. fantastic film, it gets the point accross how difficult a young carers life can be so challenging. Too many childhoods are robbed from unfortunate circumstances.


  4. Great video,? covers lots of issues
