October 30, 2016

Max Starred in The National Autistic Society Campaign - Could You Stand The Rejection? Max played the star role of the campaign a character called Stephen Johnson who suffered with Autism. The Campaign video shows someone with Autism going for Job interviews and how nerve racking they can be and how stressful it can be, especially in the eyes of someone who suffers with Autism.

 

The film is shot in first person, so you see what some people with Autism would see and how a dreaded job interview could affect them. Questions pop up on the screen during the video which relates to what questions are going through Stephens head. It also shares some facts and statistics in the video and shows that only 16% of people with Autism are in full time paid work, a figure that hasn't changed in a decade.

 

The final shot shows Stephen, played by Max breaking down outside the building which he went for an interview at.
