Moving Brands worked with Invesco Perpetual on a Christmas film in support of the charity Shelter from the Storm, a small, independent, entrepreneurial charity offering homeless people a safe, warm space all year round.
The 60 second film contrasts gentle moving portraits of the guests with time lapse shots capturing the energy and movement of the shelter. The charity’s founder Sheila Scott provides the voice-over, perfectly encapsulating the warmth, personality and spirit of the charity.”What we try to do is try to catch people, and support them, so they don’t go onto the street, they don’t go down-hill, they don’t go into a desperate spiral.”
MB’s Nick MacDonald shared his thoughts on the shoot. “One of the highlights was meeting Sheila. Her tireless amounts of enthusiasm, empathy and resolve to make a difference for people was humbling. No amount of copywriting, messaging or rehearsal could hope to capture her message as succinctly as a few minutes in her company, so we let the camera roll and asked her to speak a little about the Shelter. Five minutes later and the whole room is captivated by her stories, a few select moments formed the voice over for the final film.”
