VSI was proud to partner with Salt Film on their moving tribute to the members of the NHS Trust who sadly lost their lives during the pandemic. The film provided a revealing look at those on the front line in hospitals around the country, through a mixture of poetry song and prayer.
The 30-minute programme offered words and images of comfort and strength to staff, family and friends following the passing of five members of the NHS Trust: Elma Cavalida, Shashi Dhingra, Abdulkadir Mohamed, Patricia Pinnell and Erwin Spannagl. In addition to the memorial service, the footage showed dedicated and brave staff, in hospitals across North-west London, providing round-the-clock care and support for patients and one another.
Moving poems, songs and prayers were shared in English, Arabic, Sanskrit, Hebrew and Punjabi, from the NHS Trust’s CEO, Chris Brown, nurses and chaplains.
Due to the sensitive nature of the programme and the important message imparted by the speakers, our subtitlers aimed to remain as faithful as possible to the source material. Although subtitling can often present certain constraints, our team was able to create accurate subtitles that would be accessible for all viewers, closely adapted from the client provided script while ensuring that the provided English script still matched the foreign language audio.
