“The year 2020 was a challenging one, due to the social distancing restrictions imposed by the authorities following the pandemic spread of the SARS-COV 2 virus.
However, we found new ways to operate and reach people.
Quarantime.Bucharest is a cultural and public information project that started during the lockdown period. Between March and May 2020, we produced over 150 video materials and 500 photos. The project was presented in mass media and on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. They were also part of Biscuit Productions’ short documentary LOCKDAWN TILL DUSK, a collaborative project with 40 filmmakers from 20 countries that tells the story of a pandemic day.
Celebrating life, nature and global community, the film has been selected for the New York International Awards 2021.
Another collaboration was with the Blondie Association to build a fundraising campaign. The Blondie Association aims to give sick and lonely children the chance for maximum development from a physical, emotional and intellectual point of view.
The project was in collaboration with Chef Cezar and Matei, one of the children who joined the #luamunavion campaign. They want to help buy the first air ambulance in Romania. We produced a video and a series of photos that were posted on social media to create an awareness campaign.
I also had a project with the Sync Association where I created a material for an event aimed at promoting classical music and artists.
We thank our newer and older partners, Microsoft Education, Blondie Association, Samusocial Association from Romania, Radio Romania Cultural, Radio Guerilla, Scena9, RFI-Romania.”
