1. Soa Aids Nederland asked us to help raise awareness about sexually transmitted infections and HIV among people living in the Netherlands from sub-Saharan Africa, Suriname, the Dutch Antilles and Aruba. Recent research has shown these groups to be at greater risk of infection due to cultural factors, which often result in them being less inclined to acknowledge the risk or seek help. This is not only bad for the health of the individuals concerned, but also the wider community. So there’s work to be done…

    To have an impact on this audience, we knew we’d have to develop an approach which would resonate culturally. The film needed to balance clarity with playfulness to open minds and engage with a very serious message. It had to be sensitive to boundaries, yet direct enough to provoke action. We therefore set about writing a script with an authentic and powerful tone-of-voice, which avoided being patronizing.

    Mostly inspired by African art we’ve crafted expressive hand-drawn graphics and fluent transitions to impart a personal touch and create a powerful visual language, which is easy to relate to for the target audience. 

    In addition to the general campaign film we also created a piece intended for general practitioners. They’re on the front-line in recognizing and advising on this issue, so raising more awareness in this arena is important. This film you'll also find on our website.

    It was a great project to work on, with many creative challenges. Although very labour-intensive working frame by frame, we feel the resulting look has a charming handcrafted feel to it. It is accompanied by an evocative sound track which intertwines with the narrative, creating a piece that will hopefully resonate with its audience and be very memorable. We hope you like it!

  2. The title sequence we put together for the cycling film produced by Sinamatella Productions.

    From the small town of Iten, 2 300m above the Rift Valley in Kenya, to the raw energy of Kigali, Rwanda, this is a story about the potential of African cycling and it’s ability to restore faith to this most beautiful, difficult and enigmatic of sports.

    Can Africa be the next cycling powerhouse? What challenges stand in the way? Who are the characters?

    Baisikeli follows the Kenyan National Cycling team as they hope to emulate the success of their running brothers and make a career in the sport.
