This beautiful and heart-warming film tells the story of Bliss' work supporting premature babies and their families. As their new flagship film it has high-end production values and a filmic tone in order to promote who they are and the impact they have on those people accessing their support.
Designed without audio it is an ode to the tiny babies and parents who participated in the filming with a sensitive yet powerful message that tells audiences very simply what Bliss does and encourages support for the charity.
Utilising User Generated Content as a device enabled us to make a film aboard Save The Children's Search and Rescue boat operating in the Liberia Straits. Securing access to this story we then trained and produced on-board staff to operate iPhones to capture the extraordinary day-to-day work of rescuing migrants afloat in the water that brought to life an international political issue through an authentic story-telling method.
We created a series of moving and inspirational films that capture The Great British Get Together - a national campaign set up by the Jo Cox Foundation to bring together communities.
This combined on-site filming using multiple crews with a coordinated User Generated Content programme to harness the experience of participants in the 120 000 different events held up and down the country.
Zainab’s Story is a film about the real experiences of a child refugee as read by young people from around the world. The children were invited into the studio with no idea what they were going to do and the result is a powerful film that represents the universality of Zainab’s situation and a reminder of what is going on around the world for so many young people.
The film was supported by Cristiano Ronaldo, a Save the Children ambassador, who filmed a message of support for the launch on World Refugee Day 2017. The film was watched by more than three million people.
This series of three films was commissioned to help raise awareness amongst parents about how to spot symptoms of meningitis in their babies and get help. Each film features a family with a child who contracted meningitis and their moving and emotional testimonies speak directly to the target audience.
These three tongue-in-cheek humorous films were designed to generate awareness about the #justwater campaign and encourage people to give up all liquids in January except water.
We wanted the films to be punchy, shareable on social media and bring a light and fun tone to a difficult challenge and a serious cause.
The films were watched by more than 500 000 people, performing brilliantly on social media and attracting new audiences to participate in the campaign.
Tell Her Daddy Will Be Late
This scripted film was designed to raise awareness about problems faced by those with visual impairments when using taxi services.
Based on real life testimonies, the film brought to life some of the prejudice and discrimination faced by those with visual impairment in an engaging, sensitive and eye-opening manner.
The film was picked up and shown on Channel 5 News and achieved huge traction in bringing attention to this important issue.
Soaking Wet & Stranded

We devised this thoughtful animation as part of The Samaritans’ drive to recruit more people to volunteer on their helplines at night time. Marrying sensitivity in the graphics with a clear call to action this was directed towards attracting a wide audience, with a slight skew towards younger people.
This exciting animation was a peer-devised project whereby we supported Meningitis Now’s Young Ambassadors to create a film based on their experiences that would specifically speak to young people. Launched to coincide with Freshers’ Week this is a film that grabs young people’s attention on social media using gross-out humour to convey a very serious and powerful message for students to be more aware of meningitis.
A series of films exploring the power of words to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

Filming with Mind’s President, Stephen Fry, this was an appeal for people to get involved in their #oktosay campaign.
Shot in a down-the-barrel style to create a warm, intimate and personal tone it was hugely successful in encouraging people across the country to have conversations with their loved ones about mental health.
This prestigious and highly respected awards show required a wrap-around production service that combined live-streaming of the event from Trafalgar Square with filming behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with high-profile celebrities such as Stephen Fry and Fearne Cotton.
The production involved high-spec technical expertise, directing multiple crews and fast-turn around delivery of big, glossy assets to maximise media exposure for Mind.
