Corporate Films & Web Series
Caritas, Germany’s largest employer, works in a wide range of areas. With the project U25, for example, children and young people with suicidal tendencies receive vital counseling. To draw attention to this important offer, the Special Train for Life started in Berlin.
As with all our projects, it was very important that we approached the subject empathetically. In post-production, it’s easy to develop a certain detachment from the protagonists we’ve never had the chance to meet in person. This makes it all the more important for us to connect with the protagonists, especially when it comes to such emotional topics.
It’s a little easier to do, on a joyous occasion like the Caritas Congress. The challenge here was to produce a summary of the event at top speed during the congress, which was shown at the end of the event at the Berlin Congress Center.
Other projects for Caritas included an 8-part web series with psychologist Juliane Conradt, in which those affected received tips on a wide variety of topics, such as rent debts, computer addiction, or “What to do when the baby arrives?”
In an information film in the style of “simple animation”, a project on the subject of female circumcision/genital mutilation, or FGM_C for short, was created. Again, it was important for us to find a particularly sensitive approach to the topic in order to avoid retraumatizing the victims through the imagery.
In a humorous advertising film, doctors were also being sought who would settle in rural Brandenburg, which is not so popular for doctors. The tone of the film was quite different from the more serious nature of the usual Caritas projects.
