We're excited to launch a ground-breaking campaign for domestic violence charity Refuge with award winning directors Le Cube and BBH London. The film, co-funded by all parties, takes form as the official music video to Frances’s ‘Grow’ and seeks to raise awareness of domestic violence and let young women know they are not alone. The film utilises a fascinating production technique in both 2D and stop-frame animation, helmed by Creative Director Ralph Karam. The backgrounds and background characters were printed out and tracked past camera in cycles over a 10 day shoot at Le Cube's Buenos Aires studio while the main characters of Melanie, Refuge and Frances were animated 2D at both Not To Scale and Le Cube.

In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, zombies are cured and exiled to secluded camps. There has been talk about rehabilitating post-zombies back into society. Steve, the journalist reporting on the case, thinks the zombies still pose a threat to society. He ventures into one of these camps to prove to the world that rehabilitation is out the question.
