The Calm Films project began in response to a call from an NHS brain injury therapist for moving images to help his patients to relax.
“Moving from a mentally overly-stimulated state is often difficult; it is particularly difficult for those with an acquired brain injury. Calm films can help move people to a more relaxed state.” — Bob Lamperd HEADWAY
Prompted by research findings showing that healing and recuperation are hastened by exposure to images of nature, Artinsite are making a series of films of British Landscapes to promote feelings of calm; a reflective and meditative state of mind. We have built a library of films, but are also undertaking individual commissions.
Our films are installed at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, ABM Swansea Healthcare and with HEADWAY, a charity helping people with brain injuries.
calmfilms are made by artist filmmakers in consultation with health professionals. They are available to download, as blue-ray or dvd disks or as projections and flat screen installations, commissioned as part of an interior design or digital signage scheme.
Each film is like a moving painting showing subtle shifts of light and texture in the landscape. The soundtrack is non-intrusive natural sound captured on location.
