The Moment Creates Animated Film for BBC Ideas Platform Based on Foucault’s Work


The Moment, a division of The Creative Engagement Group, has created a new film for the BBC Ideas online content platform, in conjunction with the philosopher Angie Hobbs and the Open University.

The Moment worked closely with Angie Hobbs, Professor of the Public Understanding of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield, on the creative film. Hobbs wrote the script and performed the voiceover for the five-minute film, which examines the modern climate of contradictory information from the perspective of one of the great minds of the 20th century – Michel Foucault.

The film was produced entirely in house by The Moment. It is just under five minutes in length, and uses simple animation in tandem with Hobbs’ voiceover to prompt the audience to contemplate how French philosopher Foucault’s theories on language are just as relevant today as they were during their construction. In the age of social media, ‘fake news’, and opinion as self-proclaimed truth, language can do more than just influence; language holds the power to control.

It is part of the BBC Ideas platform, a project which sees the corporation experiment with formats and styles, with the aim of learning from audience responses. The brief for content is to create short videos that teach the viewer something, or bring them a new perspective on an existing idea, person or subject.

Alice Kilpatrick, Account Director & Co Head of Production at The Moment, said: “We loved collaborating again with BBC Ideas alongside Professor Angie Hobbs and the Open University on such a creatively challenging and thought-provoking film. It was produced entirely in-house by our talented team.”

The Moment is a division of The Creative Engagement Group. It specialises creating and delivering video, digital and immersive (AR and VR) from its offices in Plymouth, London & Philadelphia.

Emily Ratajkowski Breaks Down Single-Payer Healthcare in New Vogue Film Directed by Vincent Peone of ArtClass




Award-winning director Vincent Peone, collaborating with Emily Ratajowski and the content team at Vogue, finds an ingenious way to break down a complex issue that affects all Americans in a new short film for Vogue. The teacher in this case is Emily Ratajkowski, the model and swimsuit line owner with a very political conscience, who never shies away from voicing her opinion on Instagram and in real-life (she was recently arrested for protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.)

Inspired by Margot Robbie’s tidy explanation of the mortgage crisis in The Big Short, memorably delivered whilst lounging in a bathtub, Peone’s film features Ratajkowski in a swimsuit giving viewers an easily digestible primer on single-payer healthcare. Emrata causally lounges and caters to her nail-care routine and yet speaks forcefully and directly, delivering an insightful and incisive monologue on the state of the American healthcare system.

Vogue culture writer Bridget Read wrote the script, with Emrata adding her own adlibs to the monologue. Peone’s unobtrusive direction allows Emrata’s natural magnetism to draw the viewer in, and smile at the strangely compelling juxtaposition that unfolds. Emrata’s manner is dispassionate while her words are passionate, the message timely and incredibly important. Opting to convey this crucial message in an unexpected and left-of-center way is a thing of beauty, with Peone striking just the right balance of humor while providing voters with the necessary framework to make an educated vote in November’s midterm elections.

As a trusted collaborator of CondéNast, Peone has helmed original films starring celebrities such as Mindy Kaling, Allison Williams, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. Recently he won his sixth Webby Award for his Vogue short film documenting an insightful heart-to-heart between Meryl Streep and Anna Wintour, captured during their first meeting since Meryl portrayed Anna in The Devil Wears Prada. He also produces and shoots Vogue’s award-winning 73 Questions video series.

A true creator for the modern age, Vincent recently partnered with Executive Producer Geno Imbriale to launch ArtClass, a next generation production company based in Los Angeles and New York.
