The ISPCC recently completed a new advert. The ad has its origins in a series of conversations between Copywriter, Laurence O’Byrne, and Director, Richie Smyth. At it's core the ad is driven through a simple yet highly impactful physical and emotional impact on the viewer. Amazingly the ad was filmed and produced on a very small budget. In fact castings took place and a full crew was assembled to shoot the spot in one day in Dublin on 29th April.
The finished spot went online on at 11.00am, Tuesday, May 10th and immediately received a huge response from the public and media around the world. In three days it has become a national talking point on radio, in the press and garnered huge commentary around the world in online forums. All this helps raise awareness and much needed funds to protect Irish children from abuse.
