Our new animation for Barnardos to encourage young people to get involved with their leaving care service. As a company we always want to make films that are truthful and include all the warmth, humour and eccentricity of the people we work with. With this film it was really important to avoid being bland. We didn't want to make a film that was like a pamphlet. So we got to know young people at Barnardos as well as the staff and created this film in their image.
We think that people respond to this, they know when things feel truthful and when they sense they are they are much more likely to engage.
