David Williams - Portland Communications

Please see below the films we showed at the Portland Academy (21st July).

Learning from the Best

Commander Brigadier Tim Bevis spoke at a Leadership Development event which attended by a number of Unilever staff.  His speech on leadership had a significant influence on the group.  The film encapsulates the essence of the Brigadier’s speech and the 3-day course as a way of distributing key learning more widely throughout the organization.  The film highlights the importance of clear leadership across Supply Chain management.

Teenage cybercrime #CyberChoices
National Crime Agency

The National Crime Agency required a film to form the centerpiece of a campaign to raise awareness about the growing issue with teenage cyber crime. Using comedy, we appeal to parents to be mindful of what their teenager could potentially be doing on the computer.  The film has been shown across a wide range of media from BBC Breakfast and The One Show to Good Morning Britain.

You Poo Too
Thames Tideway Tunnel

Led by our young presenter, we learn the facts about the project and how the Tunnel is going to lead to a brighter, cleaner future for the whole of London. This film has been instrumental in educating the public about the facts surrounding the project, and clarify any misconceptions people might have. In addition to the main film, we also produced a teaser film which was launched on the Thames Tideway Tunnel’s various social media platforms.

You Poo Too (Promo)

The purpose of this promo was to generate a feeling of horror that raw sewage enters our capital city’s river on a weekly basis. The River Thames is treated as an open sewer, killing fish, polluting our environment and leaving debris along the foreshore – and the problem is getting worse!

There is a lack of understanding that this happens. People don’t like to think about where their sewage goes, but Thames Tideway needed to hammer home the message that the Thames Tideway Tunnel is desperately needed.

Our aim was to generate emotion, evoke a sense of disbelief so Londoners want to fight for the solution to happen. England was once the ‘dirty man of Europe’ and although much has improved in the last few decades, the sewage overflows are the last source of pollution to the Thames.

We set out to create a promo that is emotive, thought-provoking, memorable, engaging to all ages and understandable to the majority. We wanted the imagery to be as powerful as the words so even those without a full grasp of English can understand the problem and what we are trying to solve.

Ask Yourself

Deloitte believe in an environment in which their people are recognised and respected for their own strengths, values and perspectives. They believe that it’s only within such an environment that employees can truly be at their best.

To this end, they’re working hard to ensure they provide a working environment where everyone feels able to be themselves and can thrive, develop and succeed.  Creating an inclusive environment is not a challenge unique to Deloitte; by uploading the film to YouTube and allowing people to share it with others Deloitte hope to inspire them on their own journeys of respect and inclusion.

To date the film has been viewed over 228,000 on YouTube and has won a multitude of major film festival awards.
