Filmmaker For #WhoRunsBrum Campaign Video

Brum Youth Trends #WhoRunsBrum 2.0 Campaign Video

Background to project:

Brum Youth Trends is a pioneering flagship report for the city giving unprecedented insight on what young people think, want and need. Join us to hear the findings, and what young people and policymakers have to say about it at the Brum Youth Trends Summit on Weds 16th Oct, 12-5pm, Town Hall Birmingham.

We are building on the success of 2018’s #WhoRunBrums message by launching a 3-month campaign in the run-up to the 2019 Summit and launch of the report that will see different explorations and conversations about power, the city, and the decision making that affects young people the most.


We want to create a video that will be the anchor piece of content to our campaign which sees us ask people aged 5 - 50 what they think Power is without revealing the question to the audience until the end. We want to understand and show how there are expectations, stereotypes and accepted norms about who has power, what it is, what it feels like. This will allow us to open up a broader conversation through further audiovisual content across the campaign united under the message or rather call to arms: #WhoRunsBrum

It should be high quality, highly shareable, an emotive video that focuses on brilliant storytelling.
