Mercher Family, Romania

The Brief

As part of a fundraising campaign, the SVP asked us to make a film about their work in Romania. We arranged fly out and meet the Mercher family to tell their story. Ionut Mercher and his family had been given a cow by the SVP. Milk from the cow ensured they did not go hungry and gave Ionut’s parents a product they could sell to help support his studies.

The Film

Our charity video production crew took an Alexa and we found a terrific local drone operator to capture some stunning sweeping landscape shots to add to the b roll. Over the course of two days, working with a translator, we were able to interview the whole family as well as influential local community members, to tell this heart-warming tale.

This film was one of a series we shot for the SVP in their Rise to the Challenge campaign.
