We aim to produce a feature film about autistic Reilly from birth to young man. Educational, humorous and brutally honest.

We would like to make a feature length film which we will not only be entertaining to a mainstream audience but will also carry some good education to better equip the general public’s understanding of autism and family dynamics. Drama has proven time and time again that it is a phenomenal catalyst to promote understanding.

What makes our film different is it will utilise many autistic actors and crew.  The film is based on actual events and will make you laugh and cry in equal amounts.  A Northern gritty film which will follow this incredible family with a great insight from autistic Reilly and how he sees the world in a very different way to those he shares it with.

The Life of Reilly began as a blog about my young autistic son Reilly.  Absolutely astounded at the lack of understanding and provision for our family I decided to talk about it with the aim of educating along the way.  The blog is very successful, it has helped many families on their journey. 

The blog quickly became a stage play, a play for schools to educate children and staff in mainstream settings and a short film all about an extraordinary family on an ordinary day and how quickly a world ruled by routine can quickly be launched into chaos.  

This film will enable us to do more, to reach more. A film will add to our numerous projects including counselling, grandparents courses
