Eternal Media is a media production social enterprise and charity, located in Wrexham, that makes high impact documentary films. Their professional, award-winning producers empower and mentor volunteer film crews, which comprise people who are rebuilding their lives and are recovering from addiction and/or an involvement in crime. Eternal’s productions encourage creativity and storytelling, enhance self-esteem and teamwork, and ensure the development of new practical skills.
Eternal Media is founded by Marcus Fair, who is in long-term recovery from a 25-year addiction to heroin and crack cocaine.
‘It was a beautiful day in Poros and no matter which beach I go to, writing recovery in the sand is something I always do. Sat listening to the waves, feeling the sun on me, smelling the sea air—all these things are free and fill my soul with peace. Just being outside with nature and staying connected to other people in recovery, carrying the message to the still suffering as it was so freely given to me.’ Vicky
'My life today is truly beyond my wildest dreams and keeps getting better and better. To all those battling addiction, recovery is possible.' Neil
‘The friendships I have made in recovery are on a different level. I know that I can be 100% honest, and that they totally ‘get me’. For the first time in my life I don’t try and cover up my faults (and there are many!) and am far more accepting of myself and others.’ Tamsyn
‘Through the magic of creativity I found an outlet for me to finally begin to heal and I feel blessed that I found art journaling which helped me understand the pain I was in and to visually articulate my recovery progress.’ Deb
