See how
we did it

A big thank you to all our sponsors and to Jeff Jepson (
for providing the music to our video.

Find out how we did it!

Our aim was to help our Other Islanders share a little of what it’s like negotiating everyday life on the Isle of Man.

As well as helping our Other Islanders record videos for their own stories, facilitator and videographer Jack Bridson also documented the project itself. Here are some moments that caught his eye. Thanks, Jack!

The lovely backing track is provided by local writer and musician Jeff Jepson –  – we’re big fans here at The Other island. You can hear more of his work at


Jack in action!

They found the mix of different ways to express themselves powerfully liberating – click below to read what they’ve been saying.
