U.N. Sustainable Ocean Business

COMMERCIAL SERIES





In spring 2019 Special Occasions partnered with co-directors Michele Zarbafian and Alberto Sansone to produce six short promotional spots for the United Nations Sustainable Ocean Business Action Platform. Each short spot is an incisive, memorable skit that sheds light on an urgent ocean-related issue in a creative way: in the spot that highlights the harm of plastic in our oceans, we see a sushi chef preparing rolls, only to zoom in and find that the rolls are made of dirty ocean debris; in another that points out the dangers of overfishing, a man opens a can of tunafish, only to find it full of sand, which he pours onto a looming pile of sandy, opened cans. The videos will air in summer 2019 on various social media and video streaming sites, as well as on the U.N.'s own dedicated webpage.
