Wind turbines are impressive to look at. But if you're like most people (including me before this project,) the amount of energy they actually generate can feel unclear. Does one turbine power a single apartment? Or an entire city of apartments? With this campaign, we wanted to break down the energy potential of a single rotation of the turbine blades through stats that are as tangible as they are relatable. After all, things are most meaningful to us if we can relate to them somehow. The client was keen to keep things feeling as authentic as possible by using non-actors who are touched by wind energy in some way. My approach was to create an arc that shows the unexpected interconnectedness between their work and lives, whether directly or indirectly. To have a little fun with it, we created a little rotational device that mimics the movement of the turbines but is applied to the work on screen.
