The Power of Women’s Laughter – 2015
Action Aid collaborated with OTR to create a new video for Australia’s Frocking Hilarious event at the Sydney Comedy Festival for 2015 as a way to introduce ActionAid’s international women’s rights work. The compilation highlights women’s rights in emergencies, ending violence against women, and ensuring women’s access to land, water and productive resources. The video resulted in increased awareness and a 1000+ new subscribers to ActionAid’s newsletter.
Witchcamps in Ghana
ActionAid Australia, a division of ActionAid International, needed a video to distribute to supporters across their social media platforms. OTR created a script and developed a creative visual narrative about women banished to witchcamps. It was their most watched video of the year and resulted in the acquisition of new donors to reach ActionAid Australia’s funding target for the appeal.
Sydney Comedy Festival
ActionAid approached OTR with a need to create a captivating video displaying their work with women around the world to screen at their comedy gala event at the Sydney Comedy Festival. OTR reviewed all available media and created a storyline of short stories from women around the world in various ActionAid projects. The film was screened at the Sydney Comedy Festival Event in 2013 and 2014 and resulted in an uptick in donations both years.
Comedy Gala Event promo
ActionAid approached OTR to create a video for circulation online leading up to their Comedy Gala event to promote their work beforehand. OTR created a comedic script, sourced actors, and shot the video under a time constraint of half a day. The gala became a sold-out event as a result.
