Our work in the Third Sector
Having spent well over a decade creating compelling content for charities, not for profit and voluntary sector organisations we fully understand the massive role that the Third sector plays in our society.
At the core of our work within the third sector are the values and principles that we as a social business share with our many clients. We wholeheartedly believe in the power of human spirit and are committed to using our experience as filmmakers with a social conscience to put these community heroes into the spotlight.
Shining a light on those making a difference
We’re passionate about documenting people and giving a voice to those that would otherwise go unheard. Much of this work has been to document and promote the great work that third sector organisations are doing at a grass roots level to make our communities a better place to live in.
Our films have touched on all kinds of themes from hard hitting issues such as Mental Health Awareness, Isolation & Loneliness, Anti Social Behaviour, Social Action to promo shoots with next generation of artistic youth talent. Whatever the project we are privileged always and remain committed to working with progressive third sector organisations and the inspiring, passionate and courageous individuals that feature at the centre of each story.
How to engage young people in your area with social enterprise
Client: UnLtd & Big Local
After a rigorous UK wide tender process in Dec 2018 we were commissioned by leading UK foundation for social entrepreneurs UnLtd on a multi year film project to create a series of branded learning films that will help them to educate and inspire people to make positive social changes in their own communities.
The films will be part of an ongoing portfolio of support available for people and align with their existing learning journeys in local places. The films will be used as tools to generate discussion and spark debates at events and workshops across the UK. They will also become part of UnLtd’s online learning area, as a collection of films for people interested in making their community a better place to live, work and play.
Aims & Objectives
The marketing team at UnLtd were clear from the outset that they wanted to work with a video agency that understood the core values of their organisation and one that could reflect this in the resulting production. Being a nationally recognised organisation the productions had to accurately reflect the 'tone of voice' and high production values associated with them. They also wanted a company that they could trust and work with over a number of years on a complex media project that involved multiple agencies, individuals across a wide geographical spread.
The project began with the production of an 8 minute pilot film about inspirational social entrepreneurs in Bermondsey, south London.
It was shot in 1 day, over 5 locations with a 3 person crew and launched in June 2019 after an initial 30sec teaser campaign via Twitter followed by distribution on UnLtd's YouTube channel.
Film No2. is currently in development.
We’ve been trusted by 100s of clients within the Third Sector on a national and regional level and have been commissioned to produce all kinds of campaign, promotional, art and documentary film projects.
