UNICEF 75th Anniversary

This film was commissioned by UNICEF HQ in New York as a TV commercial and social media video. The purpose of the film was to celebrate UNICEF's 75th anniversary. Our story angle was to highlight UNICEF's role in building a better future. To do this, we recreated the childhood's of four real people around the world who received help from UNICEF, enabling them in some way to live up to their full potential. This saw us recreating stories featuring Ban Ki-Moon in Korea (1950), Muzoon Almellehan in Jordan (2013), Diana Koroma in Sierra Leone (1991) and Felipe Caetano in Brasil (2010).
