Around the world there are millions of children growing up in extreme poverty. Compassion is combatting the effects of that poverty by giving their sponsored children HOPE in the name of Jesus and through local churches.
Children in poverty are some of the most venerable humans on the planet, more specifically young girls growing up in poverty are the MOST venerable of all humans. With so much at stake, and virtually little to no cultural power to rise above the devastating effects of poverty, girls growing up poor have very little chance of finding hope and escaping the grips of poverty. That is unless someone or something steps in and helps her find hope. That is exactly what Compassion is doing all over the world through child sponsorship.
We want to make a video campaign that helps Compassion get these little girls sponsored all over the world.
Proof for the pudding
We've done a good deal of work for Compassion in the past, and I think most of it speaks for it's self, but I wanted to feature a few of those pieces PLUS a others that showcase the our style and abilities.
We just finished this piece for Shannon Kozee and the events team. It has a very similar theme, in that we're trying to get just sponsored.
This piece is a 50/50 mix of documentary, and live action narrative. This style relies on interviews and testimonies from the actual people with almost no pre-written script.
Note that what I'm proposing above would be much more live action heavy, say 90/10.
This is a piece that we created for a local non-profit here in Alabama.
This on is 100% live action, full script, every angle meticulously planned before we shot.
We have been asked to create the videos that play at the end of a few of the stories featured in the Compassion Expereience. Here are a couple:
Again these are 50/50 live action and documentary style. where as what we're pitching above is much more live action.
Here's a "sizzle reel we created to feature some of our cinematography for Compassion. This has footage from multiple projects throughout.
The concept we're pitching above would be this kind of footage from beginning to end...even better than this in many ways.
Here's the LUTA Clothing spot referenced above.
