ALMA Rwanda: Integrated Scorecard
Our longstanding client the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) introduced its scorecard system in Rwanda in 2017, to help tackling the challenge of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) that was burdening the country.
Having obtained encouraging results, the charity decided to produce a short film to encourage key decision makers in other African countries to adopt the scorecard.
ALMA had obtained hours of interview and b-roll rushes that were locally shot, and asked us to use our narrative and editing skills to produce this 3-5 minute long film.
Biodiversity: Levelling The Playing Field
As a purpose-driven organisation in service of a thriving future, we jumped on the opportunity to satisfy our curiosity and better understand one of COP’s hottest issues.
With no brief but a fascinating interview, we decided to apply our formula of truth & magic to building a short story from Bupe’s best soundbites and relevant b-roll footage, plus some well-chosen music, to make it relatable and increase its emotional power.
These are the stories the world needs to hear now – and we’re here to tell them.
RMNCAH Scorecard Mali: Introduction
Working with the government of Mali, the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) introduced its Reproductive Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) Scorecard system in 2014.
In 2022, the data gathered through the Scorecard system began to be utilised to help in understanding its effectiveness in improving maternal and child health. Through the scorecard’s ‘traffic light’ system, health workers in Mali are able to clearly understand which areas of delivery of health care are doing well, or require improvement and need to be acted on.
Our brief in this film was to follow the roleplayers in Mali in order to show the progress that has been achieved by ALMA in the country, and the ways in which the Scorecard system is improving lives by making healthcare accessible.
A Romp Through Decades of The Office
In 2018, Marriott International went into a huge renovation of their Fetter Lane office. To engage associates around this hugely exciting development in the company’s story, Marriott’s communication team tasked us with creating a light-hearted teaser.
We wrote a poem, worked with a celebrity Voice Over artist and plundered the archives to create this punchy piece that’s a romp through the decades of office life.
FIND: Diagnostics Gaps
With diagnostics being essential in the delivery of healthcare, gaps in diagnostics prevent people from accessing the care they need. By accelerating access to testing globally in LMICs, FIND is closing these diagnostic gaps and transforming the lives of millions of people.
This film is a great example of the use of a combination of animation, stock and on-location footage. The result is an impactful short explainer that provides a clear overview of what can be a complex subject.
Role of Public Health Informatics
When it comes to making films for our clients, getting to the heart of what makes them tick plays a central role within the narrative, helping us communicate the essence of what they do.
Fronted by the Public Health Informatics Institute‘s Executive Director, Vivian Singletary, this film delves deep into the company’s purpose whilst explaining their role in providing access to health informatics (the study of methods that help process & distribute patient data) so that public health professionals can improve lives.
FICO Q&A chats
Lack of travel during the pandemic forced us to develop new ways of working and with great success: accessibility and speed gave rise to a whole new way of delivering content, redefining the way our clients could communicate.
When using a crew wasn’t feasible, we had to come up with a way of creating content that was more engaging than the typical video call apps. With this in mind, we created these 2-way chats, recorded using Riverside. The result was these FICO Q&A Chats, which brought people together, even when apart.
The platform proved extremely useful in providing great industry insights which served as powerful assets that form part of an employer brand strategy. In fact they’ve become so popular that other clients have started to commission us to make these videos when budgets are tighter and fast turnarounds are needed.
W1N as one
It’s amazing what can be done with remote Riverside meeting links and some good production these days.
Working with our resident in-house producer, Nat Low, we captured the winning spirit that drives FICO‘s salesforce, to be shown at an all-staff event.
Costa Foundation: More Than Coffee
*** Shortlisted as a Finalist in the Smiley Charity Film Awards 2023 ***
The Costa Foundation is the charitable branch of Costa Coffee, but raises all of its money from customer donations to carry out transformative work abroad. This film looks at how this extraordinary work is helping some of the world’s most disadvantaged children achieve a better foundation in their lives.
Motivated with a desire to give back to the communities that grow our coffee beans, the Foundation’s dedicated Store Champions have developed innovative ways to raise awareness and money for the vital work of the Foundation, building over 90 schools and 750 classrooms in 10 different countries across the world.
Despite the strain placed on collecting donations by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Costa Foundation is determined to involve customers even further in its journey, changing children’s education and ultimately their lives for the better.
Associate Appreciation Week
Every year Associate Appreciation Week is a red-letter event for every member of Marriott‘s 200,000 + staff.
In a bid to give a more democratic overview of what makes it great to be part of this large workforce we took our Instabooth to hotels in London and Frankfurt to capture the beating heart of what drives Marriott International.
