Red Cross Typhoon Relief

Beatpixels joins the call to action for the international Red Cross appeal

A personal message from the MD

Having spotted an appeal on the CLIPPINGs Daily E-zine by the guys at sixteen-nine.net, the Beatpixels creative team swung in to action.

Sixteen-Nine wanted creative companies to produce 15 second Ads for the Red Cross Appeal in the Philippines. Having initially replied to the appeal, we were asked to produce an ad for #DOOHgood to be shown across Metro Manila.

As the team know Manila very well, they decided that a little extra effort would be needed to get the Ad to stand out in such a hectic city. Working with our extensive skills in 3D, work began on an eye catching image sequence.

Finally at 2am we published our first clip at http://youtu.be/e4y3EU6TL_E this was followed up by a portrait version some hours later.

Seeing the first post of the Ad with the words "I just yelled, Oh, cool!" , I believe we may have reached our goal of creating something that truly stands out.

We hope that the clip goes a little way to help all those that lost everything in the disaster. Our thanks goes to Dave Haynes at sixteen-nine for getting this appeal going and Bing Kimpo in Manila for getting the Ads on the networks there.  Bing also produced a follow up clip which really bring home the message from the survivors of the initial disaster and who are facing a second disaster due to the lack of aid reaching them.

Thanks goes out to Alex Hughes and his team at London-based Amigo Digital for their efforts in creating a UK campaign.
It is now down to the network owners to broadcast the content let’s hope that everyone’s efforts don’t go to waste!!!

Finally a BIG shout out to my team at Beatpixels. You guys have been amazing, I didn’t even have to bribe you with chocolate as usual but I did have to keep the coffee machine operating at full capacity!!!

Last but certainly not least. Please visit your local Red Cross website and make a donation (UK Red Cross)
