The Hangover

Posted by Paddy On November - 27 - 2009

A Public Service Announcement in conjunction with the Industry Association for Responsible Alcohol Use (ARA).  We explored the dangers of alcohol abuse from a students pespective and how everything can go so wrong, so quickly.  The use and enjoyment of alcohol is not just fun and games.  A culture of responsibility needs to be re-created amongst our generation.  Our PSA was entered into the Mnet Vuka Awards this year where we placed in the top 30 for the students category.

Child’s Play-Amnesty International

Posted by Paddy On November - 27 - 2009

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement which campaigns internationally for human rights for all citizens. This public service announcement aims to fight and make people aware of the discrimination that is taking place in various societies. This PSA cleverly uses the symbolism of jelly babies to represent race and colour, while at the same time playing on the children’s preferences for which colour jelly babies they like as a form of inclusion (acceptance) and exclusion (discrimination).  We must fight discrimination- it is not fair!!!
