December 2010




DDB Paris creates a 10 minute interactive film to raise awareness about tobacco companies manipulating today's youth. 40% of 11-15 year olds smoke in France and hundreds of thousands start smoking every year. Instead of using a very harsh communication we decided to speak in a familiar voice and create a japanese anime that would convey our message in a way that french adolescents would share between each other. In the very early stages of production we involved digital production company UNIT9 and japanese animation company Studio4C. Together with their director Koji Morimoto, who worked on Akira and Animatrix, we created a seamless interactive anime that was made especially for the internet. Working hand in hand we were able to develop the interactions in a way that has never been done before, and allowed us to fully integrate the animation and interactive assets. After 12 months of hard work, the project was launched in cinemas, rich-media banners, projected on the walls of french high schools and was featured on major french TV channels.

Digital advertisment created by DDB, France for Association de défence contre le tabac, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.

Speechless. This is probably the only instance I'll find myself supporting whatever kind of muscle-memory epilepsis hypnosis what*ever* that piece of justGreatGoodness was. Heavy investment obviously involved, Lot of teamwork over a Lot of months against the twin giants of Big Tobacco and teenage peerpressure addiction. I'll grow heads to take many hats off for this. You got my 10.
