They needed a film to make the concept more accessible and engaging for a wide range of audiences.
Our solution was a based around a device called a Phonotrope, where the illusion of animation is achieved by rotating an object and filming it at a high shutter speed. The end result was both beautiful and mesmerising – like nothing else we’ve produced before…
Filmed in a dramatic and stark manner, we hear one voice and one script, but it’s cleverly told by a series of different individuals, all telling the same story.
Each person tells a story designed to get under the skin of a series of Fundamental Principles. By doing this, we make the audience think long and deep about what the Red Cross Movement stands for and to really appreciate that each and every one of its voluntary workers does their work because they share a passionate belief that the lives of every human being should be respected.
Young men are the target of internet blackmail through what is known as Sextortion. Young women either knowingly or unknowingly tempt young men to perform sexual acts in front of webcams, these acts are then recorded and the young man then becomes a victim of blackmail.
This is a very serious issue as a number of the victims have taken their own lives. The purpose of our film is to raise awareness of this issue and hopefully save lives along the way. Our solution was to recreate a Sexploitation video, all filmed in a single shot, so it looks like a webcam. Our actress talks directly to camera, tempting the target audience to perform a sexual act for her. Half way through she changes persona, from temptress to hard-nosed extortionist as she explains to the young man that he is a victim of blackmail.
