Restorative Justice Council

Burnished's Andrew Lane Fox and Brandt Animation joined forces to create a short film for The Restorative Justice Council, a charity funded by The Ministry of Justice in the UK

The film aims to encourage victims of crime to meet the perpetrators, to seek closure or relief from the emotional stress caused by their actions.

The basic visual concept is a red thread that guides victims through the justice system, highlighting key stages were Restorative Justice can be accessed.

The soft yarn provided a sensitive way to illustrate this difficult journey.

Brandt Animation decide to use stop motion and hand drawn animation to give the film a warm and human feel, that would engage the audience.

All the elements were synced to VO and music and graded in-house.
