As well as being one the most important organisations in existence, in recent years Amnesty International have become masters at using visual media to raise consciousness about issues close to their heart.

This time round, using the lit candle of the Amnesty logo as a jumping off point, Pleix have taken on the death penalty. Even more impressive is the fact that the scenes were all actually sculpted and deformed in CG.
About the Author / MarBelle
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the multi-decade incarnation of this disorder and remains so much cheaper than film school.
