WE’RE THE PEOPLE

SGOSS

In early 2013 we created a video for education charity SGOSS, which looks to recruit volunteers to become governors for schools. At any current time, there are 33,000 governing vacancies in the UK. SGOSS wish to dispel the myth that it is a position just for parents and retired schoolteachers. Previously SGOSS had only used talking head videos and dry vector animations to communicate their message. For this video they were looking for a more creative treatment. The film aims to raise awareness about the work of school governors and demonstrate how people from different walks of life can use their skills to support children, education and schools. The video is a call to arms for new volunteers, as well as highlighting to employers the benefits of encouraging staff to engage their skills in new and challenging environments. We really like the finished piece, particularly as most people can't quite decide whether the animations are indeed animations, or paper that we've hand crafted.
