The video follows 3 people (Orange, Pink and Teal) as they become angrier and more anxious about the climate crisis. Each person sees their own extreme scenario. Orange and Teal quickly learn what they can do to help but Pink remains paralyzed with eco-anxiety until the very end. In the video you can see them signing up for PCV and starting to help with the little they can. Orange starts using social media and the digital landscape to grow support. Pink begins to protest and do things in the real world. Teal begins actively helping the environment and community. Aesthetically this campaign will draw from a grunge and punk style, using black and white photography with rips and tears and small pops of colour to add emphasis.
The doom scenarios would be: Sunbathing turns to Blizzard. Going shopping turns to Flood / Storm / Hurricane. Camping turns to Forest Fire / Heatwave. News stand turns to Tornado.
The soundtrack would be customised through: The main lyric London Calling would be changed to Britain’s Calling Working with new, rising artists (rap and more alternative artists) that connect with our market and getting them to add their own influence and styles into the track. Possibly artists that are rising on platforms such as TikTok.
The song would be released online, on different music streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, as well as be available on TikTok for people to produce their own videos with.
To accompany this, there will also be a filter that people can use to show their support with the campaign cause. The filter will show a ballot with a single box and the campaign name. All the user must do is drag the pencil over to the box, tick it and then post on their account to show their support. We kept it simple with a clear message and call to action.
The inspiration for the filter came from the recent filters created for the Palestine and Gaza crisis. The idea is you collect the seeds with the watermelon and then post on your account. This then allows the creator of the filter to monetize and then donate the proceeds to the right charity. In less than a month, $14,000 was raised by simply getting users to post online. These posts don’t need to be made public, they just need to be posted online. This is what we hope to do with our filter but for Greenpeace.
To bring the video into the real world we will be doing photo scape stalls in shopping centers in areas where the four-doom scenario natural disasters are most likely to occur. This allows people to interact face to face and also take photos and post onto social media to spread the word themselves. Here you can see the proposed aesthetic of the campaign, going dark and dirty.
The success of the campaign would be measured through Project Climate Vote sign up numbers, Funds raised, the number of filter uses on TikTok and finally the overall number of views the campaign video gets across social media.
