To commemorate the centenary of WW1, Ancestry.co.uk commissioned me to produce a film to show the work that one lady's grandmother did here on the home front. Working with an esteemed production crew, we produced this short film.

To make this more than just two people sat around talking, we ventured out to film at places which has some significance in the story we tell. To optimise this for social, we delivered in a 1x1 aspect ratio with subtitles with a focus on engaging the audience in the first few seconds.
