SMILE OF THE CHILD

Director / Producer: Elena Zervopoulou
Commissioned by: the Smile of the Child
(2017) Series of docu-fiction fundraising videos
very large TV broadcast in Greece and internet distribution

Although «The smile of child» has been the most popular Greek NGO for child protection in the past 20 years, very few were really aware of the quality of their work and of the large variety of programs they offer.

These videos contributed considerably in improving the image of the organization by informing in depth on the activities that are conducted, always through the sensitive eyes of children (actor protagonists).

(2008) NGO video (70’ & 13’)
Theatrical release in Athens, broadcasting and DVD distribution

In order to preserve this delicate intimate testimony of our young main character and avoid chocking our younger audience, we used an animation character that represents all abused children that are being taken in charge by the NGO. While the voice over of our true adolescent protagonist is being heard, we follow the animation character interacting with the other children in their daily activities.
