Charity Promotional Films

At Electric Copper Films we invest our time and energy into producing unusual films for clients that have a socially responsible agenda. We have tackled some big subjects with very client specific guidelines to meet. The four we have included here cover the topics of, end of life care, domestic abuse, mental health/wealth promotion and LBTQ+. We love to hear from charities and businesses that are trying to make a difference and would like their story to be told. It is always a challenge to find the right idea but the process is enlightening and rewarding. The businesses, charities, festivals or campaigns that broaden our horizons and educate us are the heartbeat of a modernising society and we love to work with them.

  1. St Luke's Hospice

    It was our pleasure to provide a promotional film for St Luke's Hospice, Basildon. They do such an amazing job and provide a service that quite frankly is beyond most of us. We hope it can in a small way raise the general public awareness to the essential and incredible job that the hospice provides for those who need it. In all departments St Luke's Hospice is an awe inspiring organisation with fantastic people and a wonderful sense of adventure. We decided on shooting this film on a track so that each scene glided into the next, mirroring our own journey towards the inevitable.

  2. Werk For Peace

    Werk For Peace is a charity set up in response to the bombing of an Orlando nightclub in which many people lost their lives. As part of the Adcan Awards, Electric Copper Films made this short film. Working with music producer Mark Topham, we took the sound of an explosion and rendered it into a beat to which the actor Laura Hawes choreographed a dance. This is a very special charity and a very special cause, we loved making the film and wish the members of Werk For Peace all the best with promoting the 21st Century outlook!

  3. The Change Project

    A charity that provides training to professionals who may encounter instances of domestic abuse. An organisation that has collated years of experience and understanding into a subject that is more common that we would perhaps like to admit. The Change Project Team had some very definite ideas it wished the film to communicate. Our challenge was to do this subtly. An incredible group of people to work with and some outstanding performances by our leads. Please enjoy the film and check out The Change Project.
