Some videos are screaming to be shared. This is one of them.

It’s made by a UK agency called Purplefeather. Bravo! I salute you!

What a little copy edit can do ;-)

PS @davidjvenn Thanks for sharing this video David!

*** UPDATE  ***

Hm. It was a bit more than just a copy edit :p

The concept of this short film above was ‘borrowed’ from another short film called ‘The Story of a Sign’ by Alonso Alvarez Barreda. The film was released by Wama Films. This short story winner of the 2008 Cannes Festival shows how the kindness of strangers can have a big impact.

Here’s the original:

      Hey Larissa,
      Thanks for your comment & sorry for my late reply!
      Good call. I actually didn’t know that it was a re-make.
      Or should I say rip off?!
      Purplefeather should have really credited the original film at the end of their clip.
      Then it would have been fine.
      Transparency is no minor thing in todays’ webby world.
      Thanks for adding to the conversation and clarifing!

      • Hello

        And somebody should be crediting David Ogilvy for both.
