ChildLine: First Step
For the victims of an abuse, I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to speak up, to pick up the phone and ask for help. ChildLine is a UK-based, confidential, free, 24-hour counseling service for children and young people that, together with YCN Studio in London has created a powerful animated short video to encourage victims to overcome fear and feel comfortable about the process of speaking with a counselor about sexual abuse.
It’s a multimedia experience, pretty intense and sadly poetic. For sure it will do a great job raising awareness on the child abuse. However I feel the film is beautiful but uses a very mature visual language so I must say I’m not convinced the treatment that they have chosen will prove adequate to the audience. What do you think?
The short was directed by BUCK.
