We were invited by ViiV to partner with JPA Healthcare Communications to come up with a concept that would help Healthcare professionals consider what the experience of HIV diagnosis and treatment might be like from the perspective of the patient.
We suggested a creative use of the POV (Point of View) perspective where the viewer is the patient. In addition by using text messaging as a device to carry the narrative of the film, not only did it prepare the film for subsequent translation for use in different markets, it also gives the viewer the added insight to what the patient is thinking, as they hesitate and then amend what they are about to text etc.
Filmed on location in South East England using the stunning Sony F5, it's worth noting that at no point is a genuine i-phone used! All imagery on the featured i-phone (which is a dummy model) has been superimposed by our in-house graphics team to enable it to be bright and clearly visible, but also 'swappable' for the local market translations.
In addition, when our featured patient 'David' sees himself in the mirror scenes; whilst you would originally have seen the film crew in the reflection, our team's visual effects work means you barely notice anything amiss about the fact that you are looking back at the patient's (your) reflection!
A branded pharmaceutical film, see the film being used by the client here.
