Patch-Adams

I have been working in the NHS for over 20 years as an independent producer/filmmaker and sadly doctors like “Patch Adams” are few and far between. Doctors need to lighten up especially hospital doctors, Patch Adams was a true story of a man who came to medicine later on in life who saw his peers for what they were “depressing both in looks and in manner”.

Robin Williams fitted this role as an upbeat slightly crazy doctor to a tee and is one of my all time favourite films, this should be shown to all 5th year medical students as part of their “socialising skills”.

It takes great skill to edit a one minute tribute to someone and out of all his films choose a section of dialogue that sums up Robin himself thats why I have decided to run this…in honour of a great actor and honour of a great tribute.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
