This trailer is for a series of educational videos (produced for the PCYC NSW Traffic Offenders Intervention Program) that explore the real and often tragic human costs of the choices we make while driving. From the crash scene to the courtroom; from prison to the loved ones who are left behind, this award-winning educational video production presents a personal look at the reality of seemingly small decisions that have big consequences.
Video production released on DVD and USB.
Most Australian commercials about drink driving feature graphic scenes of road trauma. Designed to scare drivers into better behaviour they mostly just cause us to look away. Instead of disengaging our audience, we sought to draw them in – to involve them. We focussed on engaging our audience with candid stories about how their lives had changed because of the decisions they had made. The resulting series pulls at the heartstrings of the audience and paints a grim picture of what is ahead if their behaviour does not change.
