Save The Children

Safe Spaces Campaign Exclusive Content Library

Client

Save The Children is a multinational NGO.

Requirements

The client was launching a fund raising campaign to further develop the Safe Spaces project that was already underway. The content plan included a TV commercial that would air on 22 different channels, a bank of social collateral that would be responsible for leveraging further connection to the campaign through the 4 influencer's social channels which included cinemagraphs as well as an image library that was needed for the website, brochures and print campaign.

Solution

Through meticulous planning and clever production our team managed to execute the shoot over an extended location day and half day in-studio with the creative talent for script recording and interviews. Creating original score with impactful sound design allowed for an extra layer of emotion to be added to the commercial.

Creative Concept

The creative concept was to keep as true as possible to the stories of the children that was told - the stories are fictitious and the featured children are actors. The stories are of children that most South African's can relate to having relation to on a daily basis, whether directly, through a friend, a colleague or an employee. The influencers who all had more than 1 million following on their respective social channels were leveraged to back up the very clear plea to assist this NGO financially in continuing the work they are doing to create safe spaces for children in South Africa.

Stills, Video and Cinemagraph Shoot

The video production took place over an extended shoot day in Alexandra Township in Sandton Johannesburg where stills and digital content were captured simultaneously. The studio shoot with the influencers was a full day in a studio in Bryanston.
