My name is Zhaq


Client: YMCA

Mission: Ending homelessness, Transforming lives

We house and resettle homeless people of all ages, providing the best opportunities to empower clients to reach their full potential and achieve their aspirations.


The Output:

We produced a scripted short film based on the real-life story of a teenager who, due to unfortunate family circumstances and lack of support, found himself on the street.

Promo portrait film emphasises the importance of mentorship for young people. It invites young professionals to get involved in the YMCA Positive Placements program and share their skills with people in need.



Outcome:

The film "My Name is Zhaq" targeted the local audience through film screenings in the open-air cinema "Brighton's Big Screen" and reached a wider audience through social media and film festivals. It has been shortlisted in the Charity Film Awards.
