As part of our Believe In Me campaign for Barnardo's we have created bold short films that dive deeper into the children’s stories, showing the full transformation they go through. Focusing on one child per film and shot in a single take each with their own haunting soundtrack, these beautifully raw performances show exactly what’s possible when you believe in children.
As part of our 'Believe in me' platform, we have created a powerful new social experiment to help keep children safe from being groomed and sexually exploited online. The film shows how online behavior wouldn't fly in the real world, and encourages parents and carers to talk to their children about the risks and dangers and who they should- and should be-friends with online.
‘Crow’ is the latest ad in Barnardo’s Believe in Me campaign. It shows a young schoolboy talking about how he ‘feels different’, since recently losing his mother to an unexplained illness. As he reflects on the shock of her sudden death, we see he is being observed by a crow everywhere he goes. We learn that his grief at losing his mother impacts everything he does, until speaking to a Barnardo’s counsellor who makes it ‘easier to smile’ once more.See More
