Moth Collective: Amazonia Security Agenda & Sarah’s Story

London-based Moth Collective (David Prosser, Marie-Margaux Tsakiri-Scanatovits, Daniel Chester and sound designer Joe Tate) recently released work for two causes – the Amazonia Security Agenda and the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children).

For more about the making of the Amazonia Security Agenda, check out the excellent interview with Moth Collective by Rob Munday at Director’s Notes.

Sarah’s Story matches voiceover of a victim of abuse with a single POV shot out a train window. The landscape evolves to match the protagonist’s tale. I love how the illustrative style parallaxes and layers. The wind and rain in particular feel visceral.
