Case Study: The LEGATUM Prosperity Index
3x films produced internationally in a short time frame
The Legatum Institute wanted to illustrate some of the key trends in a direct and emotive way. Sketch was charged with finding incisive stories that would illustrate key macro trends in three countries. In Paraguay, with the help of a local producer, we found the story of Liz, a girl whose life was saved by having the first heart transplant in a state hospital. In Sri Lanka, we met several war widows who were rebuilding their lives after the tragedy of the horrific violent end of the civil war. In Estonia, we interviewed leading entrepreneurs who had helped their country’s rapid rise since independence, creating a country whose GDP has grown by over 800% in the last 25 years.
With a limited time frame, we needed to find one story amongst the many that would perfectly illustrate the key macro trend expressed in the index. Sketch worked with a network of local producers, journalists and fixers to find the best potential stories. These were then discussed with Legatum and one story was chosen. Sketch Films managed all aspect of the production - obtaining filming permissions and organising logistics for a quick and rapid shoot.
We delivered 3x films for the launch of The Prosperity Index 2018. These films were warmly received by the audience and illustrated some of key themes picked out by the CEO of The Legatum Institute, Baroness Philippa Stroud. These films will be shown at Legatum events and distributed online. For further information on how to produce films internationally and find global stories, please get in touch.
