“Childline: First Step” by Buck

Childline: First Step by Buck
This is an outstanding animation, maybe the most engaging piece I’ve seen this year (despite being mostly text). BUCK directs this spot for ChildLine a free, confidential, 24-hour counseling service for children in the UK. It’s tricky to portray a heavy topic like sexual abuse without making it feel really heavy handed, but somehow they did it. I can’t remember the last time I saw something where the words felt this alive.

Lines6

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
