This short documentary tells the story of how an American ex-pat living in Northern England, who hadn’t been home for Christmas in 15 years, surprised her family with a little help from Microsoft Lumia & Skype.
London-based agency Mission developed the #MakeItHappen social campaign, soliciting holiday resolutions & wishes, and then actually made it happen for 31 lucky winners.
We Are Films produced and directed in the U.S. Heading into the cut, I was given some pre-production boards and pre-selected music, but the shoot had been decidedly verité, and so post-production entailed working closely with both the directors and agency to craft a concise, coherent, & emotional narrative from hours of documentary footage. We received 1.4 Million YouTube views within a couple days of its release.
