Mummu Produce #RUNNINGFORDEMENTIA Animated Short to Rasise Awareness

// Hot off the Press


#RUNNINGFORDEMENTIA is a short fundraising film made to raise awareness about the symptoms of dementia and invoke empathy and a deeper understanding of the disease.

It’s about a runner who sets off in a positive state but soon experiences some difficulties that send him spiralling into the unknown.

Mummu Co-founder Sam Atkin took on the challenge of running the London Marathon, representing Alzheimer’s Society in memory of his dear Nanny Peg and everyone else who has been effected by this illness.

Sound designer and long-time  collaborator with Mummu, Marian Mentrup, contributed the sound design and music. What he created fitted in perfectly with the surreal nature of the film and made the film so much richer.

Special thanks also had to go to everyone at Mummu who lent a hand helping Sam make the film, especially Rob Gavin (design & animation) and Thomas Weeden (animation) for their super skills!

If you like this film and would like to join Sam in helping fight dementia please make donation (no matter how small) here –
