To give immediacy, weight and relevancy to the plight of trafficked people, Leagus Delaney brought in Jonathan Dennis of Feel Films, a director with a keen photographic eye for visual storytelling and a talent for coaxing realistic and natural performances from professionals and non-actors alike.
In both School and Dinner, the two powerful spots for Stop the Traffik's Start Freedom campaign, a teenager is violently abducted from an everyday situation. Their friends and family are oblivious, but viewers will recoil at this forceful confrontation with the ugly reality of people trafficking.
We produced web re-versions for play-out in the UK, Russia, France, Spain and Holland, and created a special UK cinema version of School. Mill Colourist, Seamus O'Kane used a subtle grade applying grey tones to School and brown copper tones to Dinner, to give the films a realistic look.
