September 2016 - Marie Curie Fundraising
We've been making a few films for Marie Curie lately - one to raise awareness of the achievements of their Swimathon, another in a bid for some CSR funding from a major bank and a third to let people know about volunteering opportunities for Marie Curie. They're a great client because they always come up with imaginative ideas and clear briefs.
June 2016 More Drug Prohibition Films
Cara has been working steadily with the Anyone's Child campaign and Transform Drug Policy Foundation on a series of films telling personal stories about harms caused to individuals by drug prohibition. We have been experimenting with subtitles as many people view films on their phones and films play without sound automatically - so there is a higher chance of viewer engagement if subtitles are added.
The Anyone's Child project tells personal stories which sit alongside the drug policy work that TDPF do. The aim is to spread a wider understanding of the number of lives legal regulation of drugs would save. Some of the films she has made can if you click the 'see more' link.
Dec 2015: Raising Awareness of the Harms of Drug Prohibition
We ended 2015 with a film made from interviews gathered at the Drug Policy Alliance conference in Washington D.C. The Transform Drug Policy Foundation, which has campaigned and researched for years, on how drug policy causes more harm than drugs themselves commissioned us to make this crowd funding video.
May 2015: £1.2m raised with the help of this film
The brief was to make a film which would engender pride and nostalgia at a gala fundraising dinner and we were delighted when over £1.2 million was raised on the night of the event.
