This video documentary was filmed over a period of two weeks from the end of May to the beginning of June. This was over two months after the Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a UK-wide lockdown on March 23.
Interviews were filmed both in-person at a suitable social distance in accordance with government guidelines, and over video conferencing service Zoom when necessary.
The subjects featured in the documentary are between the ages of 27-72. Two of the interviewees are in work, respectively as a primary school teacher and market researcher. Of the remaining two, one is a retired accountant and the other is a mum of two children. Thus, there is a wide range of perspectives on the Coronavirus pandemic and how the lockdown has affected the individual.
The documentary explores three central areas: how the lockdown has impacted people’s day-to-day life, what people have found positive and negative about the experience, and how people feel about the UK government’s response to the pandemic.
