Music played on strings swells to a crescendo.
A young woman with short dark hair smiles, her grin widening as the music begins – it’s Danielle. Her head leans against the headrest of her wheelchair.
Titles in copper colour in the top right corner read: Danielle a nous story.
Music changes to lively rhythms with a strong beat playing throughout
An overhead shot of a palm tree sweeps across the tiled roof of a bungalow. Danielle is reversing her wheelchair onto the ramp at the back of a mobility van parked on the driveway outside the bungalow, alongside a red tractor.
The shot tracks towards a wooden front door which opens.
Danielle wears a red top and has a large teardrop shaped pendant around her neck. She wheels into the sitting room, a blonde-haired woman in a blue top walking alongside her.
A small white plastic cylinder is clipped to Danielle’s ear and she looks up with a cheeky grin and a wink, sporting a blue headband.
The scene cuts to a woman with wavy hair who wears a large figure 8 shaped greenstone pendant around her neck. She sits on a sofa and looks directly at us as she speaks.
[Rebecca] I'm Rebecca, and I have been working with Danielle for over 10 years now, and it's been a delight.
Rebecca smiles broadly.
The image cuts to a montage of four photos that show: Danielle in a shiny blue skirt and white t-shirt, sitting on the ground, bent forwards, her back covered with thin rainbow streamers; a pink flower; Danielle in a field full of tulips; a brown terrier dog with neatly trimmed hair.
[Rebecca] I can remember the first time with Nous. And she did it, and it was... I couldn't believe it myself, and I... I just cried. It was the most beautiful thing, cause, I mean, I'd never seen and never thought that Danielle could actually do something for herself like that. And it was phoow, mind-blowing.
Rebecca waves a hand up to emphasise the emotion.
[Rebecca] And the look on D's face was like: I'm DOING IT! I am actually doing this. It was awesome.
Video cuts from a close up of Rebecca to a close up of Danielle, the white cylinder clipped on her ear.
Danielle scrunches her face up into a smile as a tablet reads Danielle’s words aloud in a female electronic voice.
[Electronic voice] Since using Nous, I can now access a switch independently for the first time in my life. I have really enjoyed being a part of something that is going to help others.
Danielle turns and smiles up into Rebecca’s face.
The image cuts to Danielle surrounded by people: Rebecca at her left shoulder, a woman with a blonde bob kneeling at her left, a red-haired woman with a pony tail kneeling at her right, a bearded dark haired man with a pink shirt and dark jacket standing to her right and a younger red-haired woman kneeling. They are all laughing.
[Rebecca] Anthony is Danielle's father.
A photo of a balding man in a blue t-shirt, glasses propped up on his forehead, appears on the screen of the tablet clipped next to Danielle’s wheelchair controls.
[Rebecca] He's a very hard worker but is known to fall asleep at unpredictable times. Danielle likes to sneak up on him and take photos of dad sleeping. Much to his surprise when he wakes up.
The images on the tablet flick to dad asleep flat out on the sofa; Dad asleep on the floor on his back, head on a pillow and glasses on.
[Electronic voice] Wake up Dad.
The scene cuts to a group of smiling people including Rebecca pretending to fall asleep on and around the sofa. Danielle grins as she uses the tablet to take their photo.
The music livens and the tablet makes multiple camera clicks.
The people on the sofa rearrange themselves into comical poses for a series of photo stills. One puts a pink lip-shaped cushion over her mouth while others put their thumbs up, pull funny faces, stick their tongues out or wave their arms in the air.

Pale bluey-green text appears on a white background: Danielle nous co-designer & customer
An icon of a yellow and brown cartoon owl with shiny blue eyes flaps past Danielle’s name.
The word ‘nous’ is in white within a bluey-green coloured rectangular speech bubble.
