Talk to Me - One Size Fits No One, is a film about the transition from school to adulthood for young people with autism and learning disabilities.  

The film was made with young people from two schools (Ullswater Community College in Penrith and Netherhall School in Maryport), Triple A (an autism support organisation), and Carlisle Mencap. Young people were consulted about their concerns with, and anticipation of the transition process. The transcriptions of these sessions formed the basis of the script, developed, written, shot and edited by Haltwhistle Film Project, who also conducted extended consultative interviews with young people. The film was commissioned by North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group. Haltwhistle Film Project also gave young people the opportunity to take part in production itself, including building model sets, shooting interviews, and working on blue screen.
