    We designed and filmed 18 clips based on 18 words whose acronym reads HELLOHUMANKINDNESS. Each word is narrated by a 6" clip with an overall pale toning, in-camera video fx and minimal sound design. Read Less

Eleven Inc. is a San Francisco(CA) agency that asked us to develop and produce 18 clips starting from 18 words representing Dignity Health approach to health care (Dignity Health is a California-based not-for-profit public benefit corporation that operates hospitals and ancillary care facilities [wiki]).
 
The acronym of those 18 words reads H E L L O H U M A N K I N D N E S S on kindvines.org home page to launch a Vine “contest” asking users to upload their interpretation of the same theme we developed in our clips.
 
Each word reveal a theme expressed by sentences, all pivoting around human kindness to reflect and focus on the importance of those tiny charming gestures that positively affect our daily life.
 
Given conditions to respect were to fit Vineish style: square format and 6” clip length.
We chose to strengthen and give coherence by sketching each storyboard and filming clips with simple settings, pale tones, easy gestures, in-camera only “special” FX and minimal sound design.
 
It has been a great fun and a little tricky but great experience to work with the 9-hours-time-zone behind guys at Eleven. [;)]
