NEWTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / December 29, 2020 / Viewpoint Creative, a subsidiary of Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), has produced powerful video content for First Look Media to raise awareness for their Press Freedom Defense Fund. The PFDF provides resources for the essential legal support for reporters, news organizations and whistleblowers who are targeted by powerful individuals because they have tried to bring to light information that is in the public interest.
"The Fund's mission is vital and we wanted strong visuals that would help get our message out," said Jen Robertson, SVP of Marketing for First Look Media. "Viewpoint immediately understood that this piece needed to be bold, clear and impactful. It also needed to capture the independent spirit and fearless pursuit of truth that defines First Look Media and the people the Press Freedom Defense Fund helps defend."
Due to limited available video footage and restrictions on shooting during a pandemic, Viewpoint's creative team turned to their in-house illustrators and animators to create evocative illustrated imagery that helped turn complex information into impactful storytelling.
"This was a great campaign to be involved with. The work the PFDF is doing is so important," said David DiNisco, Director of Creative Production for Viewpoint Creative. "We wanted to capture the pressure these reporters, news organizations and whistleblowers are under, and the power of the Fund to help defend them. Our lead illustrator, Kriti Kaur, was able to accomplish just that."
The video was designed to be modular, so images can be easily updated to feature the most recent cases, such as that of investigative journalist & CEO of Rappler, Maria Ressa, who has been charged in criminal and civil actions brought in retaliation for critical reporting of the Duterte regime in the Philippines. This compelling story will run on First Look Media's ‘owned' platforms and will be featured during both private screenings and public events.
