Strangers Case – IRC and Shakespeare’s Globe
A Strangers Case
International Rescue Committee
IRC wanted an impactful moment for their #standwithrefugees campaign.
To produce content which cuts through the competition.
‘The Stranger’s Case’ is a poignant piece, written by Shakespeare addressing the refugee crisis in the 1500s.
We formed a brand partnership between IRC and Shakespeare’s Globe to tell this story, which still resonates today.
We created a film where actors delivered lines from the prose, acted out at Shakespeaere’s Globe.
The content delivered 1.4m organic views across Meta channels.

David’s Story – London’s Air Ambulance
London’s Air Ambulance
London’s Air Ambulance wanted a fresh approach to a fundraising film for National Air Ambulance Week.
Entirely funded by public donations, we needed to help people understand the essential role London’s Air Ambulance play in saving lives and how vital their work is. How could we get this message to resonate and drive donation?
We re-invented the traditional ‘case-study’ style of storytelling creating a bespoke treatment using dramatic on-scene audio recorded at a critical incident to lead the narrative. This was punctuated with a filmed interview of the patient three years post-emergency and enhanced with kinetic typography designed to help the viewer paint a picture in their mind of the severity of the incident and the life-saving skills of the London’s Air Ambulance medics.
A powerful and emotive piece of digital content which opened eyes to the reality of London’s Air Ambulance work and the difference they make in critical medical situations. The film drove a spike in donations and generated headlines, featuring in a news package on BBC London and BBC West Midlands and appearing in PR week. Good content works hard!

Lifejacket Graveyard – UN Refugee Agency, International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders, World Vision and Migrant Voice
UN Refugee Agency, International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders, World Vision and Migrant Voice
Deliver a PR stunt to raise awareness of the plight of refugees on the day of the UN Refugee Summit.
Media stories around refugees and asylum have been hijacked for political reasons and the plight of desperate people has been forgotten. How do we make politicians and the public think of every refugee as a person, risking their lives and the lives of their families in the most dangerous circumstances? How do we bring back the humanity?
We worked with the UN Refugee Agency, International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders (Medicine Sans Frontier), World Vision and Migrant Voice to understand the challenges faced by refugees escaping war-torn countries and the journeys they undertake.
With the help of the London Mayor’s Office we were able to take over Parliament Square for the day and create a lifejacket graveyard. Using 2,500 lifejackets, each worn by a refugee, we created a high-impact representation of lives lost at sea to bring home the real human cost of these perilous journeys.
Using our news media contacts we were able to secure global coverage of the event to bring the story to millions around the world, ensuring the charities’ voices were centre stage and not the politicians’ spin.
Coverage across 100 news outlets including BBC, Sky, Channel 4 News, Washington Post, New York Times

Out in the Field – Stonewall and BBC
Out in the Field
The Premier League and Stonewall wanted a documentary to support and publicise their Rainbow Laces campaign.
How do we smash the homophobic stereotypes ingrained in the culture of football that stop amateur gay footballers taking part in the sport they love.
No Premier League footballer is openly out so for most supporters there is no precedent for seeing gay players represented. We wanted to change perceptions by finding some role models to start the conversation and open minds in a closed sport.
We researched and found some young amateur players who were brave enough to own up to their prejudices and set up a football match with a LGBT club to humanise the issue and cross barriers through the joy of the beautiful game.
We produced a short form documentary with social cutdowns supported by a podcast.
Featured on BBC iPlayer, BBC News, BBC Radio One, BBC Sounds
