Overview

Background

The film is made for Danish TV channel, TV 2; Denmark’s most watched channel family. The film is made to communicate the new programming strategy. A strategy about focusing on the things that unite us in these dividing times, and the film is meant to set the tone for future programming on TV 2’s main channel.

As the most watched channel family in Denmark, TV 2 aim to work against the fragmentation of society, that segmentation of viewers, echo chambers on the internet and polarising debates lead to.

There is a global discourse, that our societies are falling apart. In Denmark, the debate is about cohesiveness, and even in homogeneous Denmark it sounds like the different groups have nothing or very little in common. TV 2 believe, we have a lot of things in common. But it is a political statement to say it. They needed to show it.

Description

We gathered 10 different groups of Danes: The rich, the poor, the young, the old, and so forth.

Each group enter the studio separately. They are placed in a half circle, facing each other, and both the scenography and the voice-over builds the feeling of divisiveness between the groups.

The director interrupts, and he begins asking questions. Everyone are asked the same questions.

Questions like: “Who was the class clown?”, and “Who are lonely?” If the answer is yes, people step forward.

Then new and unexpected groups start to form.

Execution

The film was launched on TV 2 Denmark’s facebook and youtube channel. The film ran nationally on TV 2 and was used as short channel idents before and after commercial breaks.

The main effort was to make people engage with the film online; both nationally and abroad. International success was made into national news stories, and each time a new part of the world began sharing the film, it revived the attention in Denmark. Especially mentions in international media echoed in Denmark.

We used the media to prove the message and make the campaign into a self-fulfilling piece of work that both introduces and proves the strategy of making content for everyone instead of further segmentation.
