The Hiring Chain

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Film / Social Commercials Over 30 Seconds / 2021

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Sound Design & Use of Music / Original Composition

This film tells an uplifting story backed by original song The Hiring Chain, performed by Sting. The joyful lyrics come to life on screen and bear witness to the virtuous chain of inclusion in the workplace. In the first scene, a young woman with Down syndrome is at work at a bakery; showing customers her skills. She impresses one of the customers, a lawyer, who in turn hires a young man with the same condition. From there, an inspiring chain reaction of hiring ensues.
