Hurricane wins Digital Entrepreneur Award 2015 for charity film

We’re proud to share that the animation we produced for Together for Short Lives, the leading UK charity for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions, has just won a Digital Entrepreneur Award. “We’re having a baby” beat five other projects to win the Animation or Gaming Project of the Year award.

The Digital Entrepreneur Awards are the UK’s only national awards dedicated to internet entrepreneurialism. Watch the winning film.

After hearing from parents who had benefited from their services, the whole Hurricane team was keen to help raise the charity’s profile pro bono. We achieved this by doing what we do best – telling stories.

In order to give the animation an emotional resonance and authenticity, we used real-life stories to show how this not for profit helps families.  The animation tracks parents’ experiences from feeling cast adrift when they hear heart-breaking news to being grounded again through the work of Together for Short Lives. We worked with illustrator and animator Katy Davis to bring these stories to life.

If you’re looking for a video campaign to raise the profile of your charity or business, contact us.
