[one_half]Long standing clients, the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), believes that answers for the African continent can be found in Africa. It’s mandate of “enhancing human security on the continent” is often reflected in the work ELP Media helps to produce.Various project within the ISS (African Futures Project and Peace Operations & Peace Building Programme) use ELP and our infographic skills to draw out key insights and outcomes from their written papers. A comprehensive research report on the African Union and Regional Economic Communities was written and presented. The paper is a lengthy document often directed at those in industry. These short infographics allow the information and it’s core messaging to be accessible to everyone, in minutes, in a concise and highly informative manner.
Our Infographic process, involves the client at every step, through pre-approved mood boards and color palettes as well as client input on the voice over and video effects. This helps to ensure the client’s complete satisfaction with the end product.[/one_half][one_half_last] [/one_half_last]
Civic Education is a vital component of an effective, responsible citizenry in any democracy. The Civics Academy project is a free educational resource that aims to cultivate democracy through education.
In collaboration with the Hanns Siedel Foundation South Africa, Echo Ledge Media produces content for the Civics Academy website which provides free educational materials for youth looking at important issues.
Such as how our democracy works, what our constitutional rights are and other issues such as how banking or municipalities work.
This promo, an advanced version of the Civics style, saw Echo Ledge animating still drawings made in Paper for iPad. The project is ongoing and content we’ve produced can be viewed and utilised at http://www.civicsacademy.co.za/[/one_half][one_half_last] [/one_half_last]
Kosowo Music Video
Having previously worked on his hit record “Baby Boo”, the third time that Nigerian artist Tunde Ednut came to South Africa to shoot with ELP Media, we created a post-apocalyptic world in which he searches for a lost lover.
In this story the Earth's fossil fuels dried up quickly, food became scarce, billions died of disease and malnutrition. The world’s survivors live in bleak landscapes, struggling to find water, and travelling by foot/cart/horse. It’s a dangerous world where death is always knocking. Tunde travels across a post-apocalyptic desert chasing the mirage of a woman until he comes across a tribe where he uses his music to conjure a being and win the girl.
The "Kosowo" Music Video was a chance to test our creative boundary by making use of some more unusual locations and get away from the stereotyped fast-car, big money flash music videos. Pushing through some tough conditions in the sand created a distinct look and an intriguing sci-fi/fantasy universe for another great video for Tunde which has garnered over 12 000 views on Youtube with an overwhelmingly positive response from both audiences and industry.[/one_half][one_half_last] CREDITS: Directed by Matthew Griffiths, Produced by Rafeeqah Galant, Dancing by Natasha Rhoda, Cinematography by Christian Denslow, Styling by Tracy-Lee Rosslind PD by Jette Neumann, with assistance from Barrett De Kock, Frankie Stromberg, Warrick Le Sueur, Jacques Lodewyk and Alasdair McCulloch [/one_half_last]
