See what we got up to in 2021 to get inspired for the New Year!
January and February
In preparation for International Women’s Day, Women for Women International invited us to produce a series of animated films using their bold re-brand, encouraging women to sign the pledge to use their #PowerToChange the world — to make it more equal, peaceful, and prosperous for women everywhere.
We also helped Women for Women International celebrate Women’s History Month with a series of social-first video using ‘collage style’ cut-out animation and dynamic typography.
April saw the Annual Conference for the British Society for Rheumatology, where they launched a series of 8 videos and animations, many of which highlighted the benefits of BSR membership. With no previous video output, they were looking for an agency to take care of the process end-to-end, to set the tone and achieve a consistent visual style for all films.
Field in Trust approached us with an ambitious, fast-turnover project to capture the authentic voices of park users for a high-profile event to be attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. We were delighted to produce a film that generated an emotional response from the audience during its screening in Edinburgh, celebrating the impact that parks and green spaces have had on us during the difficult lockdowns.
June and July
In a busy summer of shooting, we produced a series of case study films for Thomas Pocklington Trust’s #WeWork series, shining a light on blind and partially-sighted people working in a range of roles and sectors.
We also travelled around the country filming the nurses, midwives, and health care support workers who had been awarded an RCN Foundation Impact Award, which acknowledge their incredible and invaluable contribution working tirelessly caring for communities.
We were then delighted in July to be commissioned by The Money Charity to produce 4 new promotional videos to showcase the essential work they do in engaging people of all ages across the UK with Financial Wellbeing and Financial Education.
That’s not to say that animation didn’t get a look in! In fact, we produced a series of illustrations and brand animation for charity Working Chance, who support women with convictions gain meaningful employment.
In August, EITI challenged us to create a film to introduce their Opening Extractives initiative. The film was to draw upon both animation and live-action and feature figureheads in three countries: Nigeria, the Philippines and Mexico. We’re delighted that we pulled it off, and the video has since had 13,000 views on YouTube - a resounding success.
In September, the BMA invited us to produce the biggest animation we have produced to date: a ten-minute animated history of the BMA & WMA. This was a specially commissioned timeline film that highlighted the extent of the BMA's work with the WMA for the benefit of the global medical community, throughout their 190-year history. The film was showcased at the 72nd World Medical Association General Assembly, hosted by the British Medical Association.
8th October 2021 marked the start of YoungMinds' #HelloYellow campaign, an event which raised vital funds for children's mental health in support of World Mental Health Day.
We were delighted to work with YoungMinds to produce a fast-turnover film, using the voices of their young ambassadors, to be shown in primary school and secondary school assemblies to encourage young people to wear yellow and talk about mental health.
In November we had the pleasure of working with Shared Care Scotland to produce an animation to promote their Respitality initiative. Respitality combines traditional respite with hospitality, working together with local tourism and leisure providers to gift in kind breaks and experiences to unpaid carers. We loved getting to shine a spotlight on Scotland!
We rounded off the year completing a series of videos commissioned by Clergy Support Trust, highlighting the stories and support given to members of the Anglican clergy, ordinands, and their families, in the UK & Ireland, including a film shown at their AGM.
We also ended the year, as we always love to, working with the Encephalitis Society to produce a whole load of videos for their Encephalitis Conference. Check out this BTS Snap!
