Fight For the Future of Oceans is at the Heart of New Volvo Film for Sky Atlantic, Created by Grey London



Volvo - The Unseen Ocean from Grey London on Vimeo.

The fight against plastic pollution in our oceans is at the heart of a new film by Volvo Car UK and Grey London, for Sky Atlantic.

‘The Unseen Ocean’ focuses on Tom Franklin, a primary school teacher who also runs City Kids Surfing, a programme that teaches children to swim and surf, and educates them about the environment.

With Tom’s mission to help children from the UK’s cities become future guardians of the world’s oceans, the film follows a group of young children as they travel from south London to the Cornish coast and captures the moving moment they get to witness the natural beauty of the sea, before being given the chance to splash in the waves for the first time in their lives.

As well as feeling the power of the water against their skin, they are also given lessons in its fragility. They collect plastic waste that’s washed up on the beaches and are taught about the impact this has on the delicate ecosystems in and around the planet’s oceans.

Tom, who was a teacher in South London, developed his ocean education programme after realising the future health of the seas lies in the hands of kids who may not have experienced its awesome beauty first hand. He set up his not-for-profit organisation to take children to British coastlines to help them understand their role in protecting it for generations to come.

The campaign supports Volvo Cars’ sustainability programme, which is one of the most ambitious in the automotive sector. Earlier this year, the firm announced that by 2025 it aims for at least 25% of the plastics used in every newly launched Volvo car to be made from recycled material. It has also committed to removing single-use plastics from its offices and events across the globe by the end of 2019. In September, Volvo became the first and only car maker to endorse the G7 Ocean Plastics Charter, which commits governments to take concrete steps towards addressing the issue of ocean plastics pollution.

Tom Franklin said: “We’re never going run out of inner-city children, but we are going to run out of clean, pure ocean. If we put the two together, what a combination that would be, what a powerful force. We’re trying to come up with a truly humanistic approach to ocean sustainability. Helping these kids fall in love with the sea is a vital step in safeguarding our planet’s future.”

‘The Unseen Ocean’, which features the Volvo’s XC90 T8 Twin Engine and V90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid vehicles, will air on Sky Atlantic from 1 October as part of Volvo Car UK’s sponsorship deal with the channel and will be available on Video On Demand for a year.

This film, the sixth in the series, was directed by D.A.R.Y.L via Pulse Productions and shot on location South London and Porthcothan Bay, Cornwall. Previous films have been recognised with awards including a D&AD Pencil and Cannes Lions.

Love Island Stars get their teeth into Halloween Campaign for NHS Blood and Transplant


Creative agency 23red has secured a partnership between ITV2 and NHS Blood and Transplant which will see Love Island stars front a campaign to attract young blood donors.

The Love Islanders will form the ITV2 Blood Squad to help quell young people’s fears about blood donation and encourage them to register and book an appointment at a local donation centre.

In a poll of 1,000 adults, the fear of giving blood was considered scarier than public speaking, heights and going to the dentist, with the main barrier being a fear of needles.



But NHS Blood and Transplant needs 600 new donors every day to replace people that can no longer donate, so it’s vital that they engage with a younger audience to break down barriers to blood donation.

Having been introduced by 23red, ITV2 secured some of their biggest talent names to work with NHSBT – Love Island stars Dani Dyer, Jack Fincham, Wes Nelson, Dr Alex George and Laura Anderson – and to star as the ITV2 Blood Squad in a series of Halloween-themed promos and other social content made by ITV Creative to take the fear out of blood donation this Halloween.

Launched on the 17th October, the ITV2 Blood Squad will be directing people to a bespoke ITV2 landing page where people can view additional content including myth-busting videos featuring the ITV2 Blood Squad as well a click through to register to become a blood donor.



Jane Asscher, CEO and Founding Partner at 23red say: “Having worked with NHS Blood and Transplant over the years, delivering campaigns to drive blood donor registrations, it was great to be involved in addressing this new challenge of overcoming fears and myths surrounding blood donation - and so drive donations from younger people.

“Given the popularity of Love Island, this partnership with ITV2 will enable NHS Blood and Transplant to engage with younger people in a tone of voice that resonates with them.”

Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant says: “There are many myths associated with giving blood, but it really isn’t scary.”
