ICFA

Luxembourg

The International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg (ICFA) supports high impact investment strategies and yearly awards 9 to 10 fund managers with climate change projects.

GotU creates the films of their biannual cohorts.

Background

ICFA Luxembourg was initiated by 9 private entities from the Luxembourg financial sector as well as the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development in 2018.

Each video features an awarded project aimed at mitigating climate change.

Process

The ICFA brief was minimal. They asked for 3 questions to be answered by the awardees and that the maximum duration of the videos should be 2 minutes.

GotU was otherwise given total creative freedom. The constraints were a tight budget and the fact that the interviewees were scattered across 12 different countries.

We agreed on a script with a Skype style interview, animation of photos (3D parallax, SFx) and titles. The titles would allow viewing the videos without the sound, making the films mobile friendly and easily sharable on social media.

GotU tested different solutions and designed the process where the interviewees filmed and recorded themselves with their own smartphones. We wrote strong guidelines and helped them achieve the self interviews.

The project gave life to a series of human and intense short films.
