Here is some of the great feedback my Fixers film, which raises awareness of epileptic seizures, has received so far!
‘Thank you for making such an important video of how to assess this situation coming from a person who has tonic colonic seizures.’
‘I have seizures and this is the first time I've seen a seizure in action. This kind of info needs to be spread to people so they know what to do when someone has a seizure.’
‘Great film, and about time there was a film like this without all the medical mumbo-jumbo that we medics talk without realising that normal people have not got a clue what we are going on about.’
‘This is a really helpful, brilliant video!’
Digital Mums tweeted: ‘Well done guys for making this video. It's definitely needed - many don't know what to do and it can be a scary situation.’
Safeaid Services tweeted: ‘Great video! Hope you don't mind us showing it to candidates on our first aid courses.’

My film was also featured on the Epilepsy Action website and even caught the attention of Eastenders actress Maddy Hill on Twitter - whose character Nancy Carter suffers from the condition.
