Macmillan Cancer Trust - 'NOT ALONE' campaign 2013
In November 2012 Kevin filmed for The Macmillan Cancer Trust. The director was Barney Cokeliss for R.S.A. Films (Ridley and Tony Scott's film company).
'Not Alone' was based around the sinking feeling people get when they receive bad news and how Macmillan is always there to catch and support you. This commercial was very moving to participate in due to its subject matter. Broadcast multiple times daily across the UK since the 11th of February, the huge response to this visionary campaign has also been moving.
