Silent Circle is one of the world’s leading encrypted mobile companies. They wanted to shine a spotlight on how technology is transforming privacy in the 21st century - to help individuals and businesses understand the potential pitfalls and benefits. So we created a series of five, beautifully shot, documentary shorts, featuring journalist, geek and TV presenter Aleks Krotoski. Aleks traveled the world, to really get under the skin of privacy in the digital age - getting her laptop hacked at DEF CON, using open source data to map radioactive fallout in Fukashima, and finally spending 24 hours in the very latest smart home.
The films were directed by Callum Copper, with animation from BAFTA nominee, Matthias Hoegg (for which they won Best Film/TV Graphics at the British Animation Awards). As well as appearing on the Guardian, they were shown at the World Economic Forum in Davos and were part of the Big Bang Data exhibition at Somerset House. The series was awarded a D&AD Pencil for Best Branded Content.
