DamageControl worked with ActionAid India to produce a series of videos for the BRICS summit held in Goa, India. These countries, Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, are some of the worlds fastest growing economies and have been pursuing aggressive pro-growth strategies. Corresponding with the BRICS summit in India, ActionAid sought to generate awareness of the BRICS organization, as well as the socio-economic conditions prevalent throughout the five countries. But it was more important to introduce BRICS, even to development activists through social media, ActionAid and its partners.
DamageControl created four videos addressing different socio-economic aspects of the BRICS. They covered agriculture, livelihood, social progress, and public welfare, throughout the five countries. All videos were edited and produced by DamageControl, in addition to filming the segments on India. Each video is comprised of interviews with both experts and citizens affected by respective economic policies in the various nations, and, for each topic, we created a full-length and shortened video. DamageControl anchored editorial content and style with ActionAid colleagues and shooting teams in all BRICS nations.
