National Inclusion Week

Office of the Public Guardian

The challenge

The Office of the Public Guardian asked us to create a video celebrating National Inclusion Week and inclusion generally at OPG. It needed to acknowledge all the issues, emotions and feelings related to the 9 protected characteristics of inclusion, and promote social mobility. For this video, we filmed at 3 OPG offices in Nottingham, Birmingham and London.

Our solution

We filmed a diverse group of staff holding up banners relating to their experience of inclusion at OPG. We used a plain white backdrop as we didn’t want to deter the viewers’ attention from the text. Using uplifting, vibrant music and snappy intercuts of individuals and groups, we wanted to create a video with a feel-good tone to highlight the positive effects of inclusivity.
