UNICEF Water Under Fire

This film was commissioned by UNICEF HQ in New York for UNICEF social media channels. The purpose of the film was to highlight how the control of water supplies is being used as against people in certain conflict zones. The concept involved creating a feeling of suspense around a mysterious weapon of war that everyone uses. The video went on to win Gold in both the Telly and the Shorty awards.
