Kirklees Council Adoption
Client: Kirklees Council
Creative Direction: Peter McEvey
Camera Operator: Daniel Jojo
Music: Matt Robinson
Created while at Creative North West.
The process of adoption can sometimes take years, it can be evasive and emotionally draining but it’s a life changing process and ensures both parent and child are a suitable match.
Kirklees Council required a educational video to aid them in communicating this process in a clear and concise manner. Interviewing successful adopters, the film provides an honest and balanced account of their experiences. While the stills of the interview are taken from the concept pitch, the rest are from the finished product.
design(function) was involved in researching and conceptualising the initial pitch, film direction / art direction, editing /colour grading and producing the motion graphics which tied the five steps of the adoption process together. Finally, producing a bespoke DVD that opened with a short highlights video and transitioned seamlessly into the chapter menu.
Katie and I are extremely pleased with all your help in working towards completing our DVD. [..] We are pleased with all the ideas and help we have received from your team to create an effective DVD. We are also pleased with how quickly things have moved with the DVD from initial meeting stage.
